Get Relief from Dizziness and Vertigo with Physical Therapy Treatments

Did You Know Physical Therapy Could Help With Those “Spins”?

Has your dizziness been impacting your daily life?

We’ve all had the sensation of being dizzy – as if you can’t focus, can’t see straight, can’t stand upright without swaying or falling. You may even experience “tunnel vision,” where your peripheral vision goes dark for a few seconds.

Dizziness is common and can have many causes. Vertigo, however, is a little different. While dizziness is typically synonymous with “lightheadedness,” which creates the illusion of being unsteady, vertigo is typically a response to a physiological factor that is causing a literal imbalance in your body.

Those experiencing vertigo have reported feeling as if they are “rocking” or “spinning,” even when they are sitting still.

If you are in Waco, TX living with dizziness or vertigo, don’t hesitate to contact Heart of Texas Physical Therapy today.

Physical therapy and relief for your dizziness/vertigo

Both dizziness and vertigo can hinder your daily life, limiting your ability to perform even the simplest of tasks. Luckily, no matter what the cause may be, physical therapy for dizziness and vertigo can help. Heart of Texas Physical Therapy is very successful at diagnosing and treating both dizziness and vertigo with vestibular rehabilitation in Waco, TX.

Vestibular rehabilitation includes treatments such as the Epley maneuver and Cawthorne head exercises. The Epley maneuver allows for canalith repositioning, in order to move the broken calcium crystals in patients experiencing BPPV. Cawthorne head exercises focus on decreasing nerve sensitivity and reducing the effects of vertigo.

How do I know if I’m experiencing vertigo?

Vertigo is most commonly caused by an imbalance in the inner ear, also known as the “vestibular system.”

Your vestibular system helps you maintain your balance and center of gravity by sending messages to your brain regarding your movement. When this is impaired, the necessary messages become blocked from your brain, and your movement becomes affected.

You may feel as if the world is spinning around you, you can’t focus your vision for prolonged periods of time, or you can’t stand/move properly without feeling like you are going to topple over. Some common causes of vertigo include:

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)

This is the most common cause of vertigo. It occurs when the tiny calcium crystals located in your ears break apart and move around to different parts of the ear, where they are not supposed to be. This can cause sudden spinning sensations (vertigo) and inner-ear discomfort.

Migraines

Migraines can impact your vestibular system, thus causing episodes of vertigo which may be coupled with a sensitivity to light or sound. Vision may also be impaired.

Vestibular neuritis

This is an inner-ear infection that can cause vertigo.

Stroke

A stroke affects movement in your whole body. If you recently suffered a stroke, you may experience waves of vertigo which may linger for extended periods of time.

Meniere’s disease

This occurs when fluid builds up in your ear(s). This typically includes “ringing” in your ear and sudden waves of intense dizziness that may last for hours. You may also experience momentary hearing losses.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may be living with vertigo:

  • Sweating
  • Abnormal eye movements
  • Arm or leg weakness
  • Difficulty seeing or speaking
  • Inability to focus or remain alert
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Double vision

So, what’s causing my dizziness?

A few of the many factors that can lead to dizziness include lack of sleep, poor nutrition, overexertion, or a physical ailment, such as a head cold or the flu.

Dizziness can also occur from something as simple as standing up too quickly after an extended period of rest. Some accompanying symptoms to dizziness may include:

  • Loss of balance
  • Feeling woozy or faint
  • Momentarily impaired vision (i.e. tunnel vision)
  • Lightheadedness or heavy-headedness
