Have you ever wondered if there was a way to get rid of vertigo?
When you have vertigo, it can feel like the world is spinning out of control. Vertigo symptoms can be debilitating and terrifying, but there’s no need to worry. With physical therapy, you can find relief from your vertigo symptoms and get back to enjoying life!
Vertigo is one of the most common types of dizziness, and it can be extremely frustrating. There are many ways in which physical therapy can combat and alleviate both the symptoms and causes of vertigo. In fact, specific physical therapy techniques have been created to combat the very balanced problems which can cause vertigo. One of the most effective types of physical therapy is vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT), a technique designed to speed up the process of compensating for a damaged balance center.
When you’re dealing with vertigo, your brain is essentially going through an identity crisis. It’s having trouble recognizing the signals it’s receiving from your inner ear and then responding appropriately. It’s like your brain is getting mixed signals–and that can be incredibly frustrating!
Physical therapy helps your brain learn how to balance again by forcing it to respond to novel inputs. When we challenge your body in our therapy sessions, it forces your brain to develop new pathways and neural connections that will make “re-learning how to balance” easier over time. This is why we recommend doing at-home exercises with the combination of our professional vertigo treatment in MyoFit Clinic, to reinforce what the brain learns in our therapy sessions.
Keep in mind that physical therapy is an intensive process. Your symptoms might feel and seem to worsen at first, it will be challenging the body to learn new ways to balance with physical therapy during sessions, it can’t improve. With the help of a professional Physical Therapist it will help to force the brain to consistently respond to unique balance inputs, it will eventually and slowly develop new pathways and neural connections that will make re-learning how to balance the body will get easier each PT session.
