Finding Your Equilibrium

In Balance

If you are experiencing dizziness or vertigo it can be debilitating. Over 50% of the population will experience some form of dizziness or balance disorder during their lifetime. It can happen at anytime, however it is more frequent as we age. Falls due to dizziness and balance disorders are the leading cause of injury, and subsequent loss of independence in senior citizens.

Symptoms of disequilibrium:

  • Dizziness
  • Frequent Falls/Poor balance
  • Nausea
  • Lack of coordination
  • Lightheadedness
  • Vertigo (feeling like your spinning)
  • Blurred vision

Causes of Disequilibrium:

  • Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Labyrinthitis
  • Cervicogenic dizziness
  • Post-concussion syndrome
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Migraine headaches
  • Blood pressure issues

Your body’s ability to maintain its sense of equilibrium is complex and involves the interaction of many systems. At Health In Balance Physical Therapy we have specially trained therapists who will help determine the exact cause of your dizziness through a systematic evaluation of these systems. Once the cause is determined, your therapist will utilize the most up to date techniques to get you back to feeling normal.
