Vestibular Therapy


Is dizziness taking over your life? Find relief at Agility Physical Therapy

Do you get dizzy all the time? Have you noticed yourself getting lightheaded and grabbing onto furniture or leaning against a wall to steady your body throughout the day? You might be dealing with a vestibular problem. At Agility Physical Therapy, our physical therapists can help you figure out the source of your symptoms and guide you to a solution that works.

Each year over 10 million patients visit a physician due to dizziness. Dizziness refers to various sensations, ranging from fainting to feeling weak or unstable. Dizziness is typically a sign of mechanical problems due to dysfunction of the vestibular system, both peripheral (inner ear, vestibular nerve) and central (brainstem, cerebellum), or a side effect of medications.

Vestibular therapy at Agility Physical Therapy may solve your problems.

What’s causing my dizziness?

Dizziness is a term used to describe everything from feeling faint or lightheaded to feeling weak or unsteady. Another common term you may have heard before is vertigo, or the sense that you or your surroundings are spinning around. Vertigo or dizziness can have a significant impact on your daily life. As a result, even the most basic tasks can be challenging to complete without becoming exhausted.

Symptoms can be constant or intermittent, lasting anywhere from seconds to hours. They can occur while standing completely still, lying down, or changing positions, such as rolling over in bed. Experiencing continuous symptoms can drastically affect your ability to perform everyday activities.

Feeling dizzy throughout the day as you try to work and get things done can be highly disorienting. Vertigo and dizziness are two of the most common reasons adults seek medical help, along with back pain and headaches.

The most common reasons for balance issues are as follows:

  • Inner ear problems related to the vestibular system
  • Aging
  • Stroke

  • Medication errors
  • Physical inactivity

Regardless of the cause or type of symptoms you are experiencing, our team at Agility Physical Therapy will use the most effective, research-based techniques to help you return to normal function as quickly as possible.

How will vestibular therapy benefit me?

The vestibular system, also known as the inner ear, influences balance in various ways. The vestibular system gives our brains vital information about how we move and how our heads are positioned. It also involves motor functions controlling our overall balance, stability, and posture.

At your initial evaluation, we will conduct a comprehensive assessment that includes your medical history and a physical examination of your joints, muscles, coordination, posture, inner ears, and eye tracking capabilities. Our evaluation will help identify the likely cause of your symptoms and guide our choice of treatments.

Vestibular therapy exercises are intended to help with balance, dizziness, vision problems, and fall prevention. Vertigo can also be relieved with manual head maneuvers performed by our skilled therapist and taught to you as a home exercise program.

Vestibular therapy can help with the following conditions:

  • Vertigo / benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere’s syndrome
  • Vestibular neuropathy

  • Stroke
  • Migraines

We have helped many people return to their favorite activities while lowering their fall risk. Our therapists at Agility Physical Therapy will prescribe a vestibular rehabilitation program of specific exercises, balance drills and movement techniques to restore the functioning of your vestibular system and get your balance back on track!
