Why am I so dizzy?

It sounds crazy, but some 76 million Americans will have some sort of dizzy spell or vertigo symptoms in their lives. Indeed, dizziness and balance loss are the second most frequently reported complaint among doctors’ offices.

Both of these conditions are extremely common and can affect your overall quality of life and make you feel out of balance.

Symptoms may range from acute to chronic and may be indicators of serious health risks in some cases.

If you are dizzy often, you must have your condition evaluated because it may put you at a greater risk for falls, which can cause severe injury.

How can vestibular therapy help?

Vestibular therapy is also referred to as vestibular rehabilitation, and is conducted through a process of “adaptation and compensation.”Vestibular therapy could be the difference between a lifetime of dizziness and vertigo, and feeling your absolute best.

Balance disorders refer to a broad range of conditions, but they are all connected by the effect they have on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear.

A few common balance disorders that can be improved through vestibular therapy:

  • Migraines
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Stroke

At Island Health Physical Therapy, we provide vestibular therapy for our patients suffering from balance disorders in Riverhead, NY and surrounding areas.

This means that the vestibular system is being “reprogrammed” through both passive and active therapies to form connections with the brain on adjusting imbalances and regaining stability.

If you’re feeling dizzy and off-balance, don’t wait any longer to get help!
