By visiting the right clinic, one can be able to get treatment for dizziness, loss of balance, vertigo, and nausea. People who suffer from these conditions may be completely unable to work and their quality of life may be low. These conditions may make it impossible to perform simple chores. One may suffer from injuries due to frequent falls as a result of these conditions. These conditions can be dangerous to a person because they may suffer severe injuries or even mild injuries.
There are treatment solutions that are available for people who suffer from dizzy conditions and one does not have to suffer from the conditions. The physiotherapy that is used to treat this condition is called vestibular rehabilitation. The treatment includes particular kinds of exercises that promote the central nervous system.
The causes of dizziness and imbalance include Meniere disease, age, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, head injuries, acoustic neuroma, migraine-related disorders and vestibular neuritis.
When you visit a vestibular rehabilitation clinic, a vestibular rehabilitation therapist will do an assessment to determine the cause of the dizziness or imbalance. This assessment will help the specialists to design a customized program of exercises that will help to solve the condition. It may be necessary to change a dietary lifestyle in addition to carrying out special exercises which will help a patient. Patients must be disciplined and carry out regular exercises in their homes. To improve a patient’s condition, the experts may give lifestyle advice and this will cause one to see positive changes in their condition.
Some conditions can be treated with a head maneuver called Epley’s maneuver. Patients may also get cognitive behavioral therapy to improve their conditions. Vestibular rehabilitation can take one or two sessions to treat depending on a patient’s condition and in some, several months to treat. In order to provide the treatment that is necessary, a vestibular rehabilitation therapist must understand a patient’s condition fully.
Some patients normally think that a condition will clear up on its own and take time to get treatment but they should get treatment early. Some patients may visit physicians and still not get a solution and this is what may delay the treatment because they do not understand their condition or where to seek help. People who feel like one is drunk, veering off as one walks, unsteadiness on one’s feet, feeling like one is spinning or the surroundings are spinning should seek help immediately. An assessment will determine whether vestibular rehabilitation will improve your condition.
