Dealing With Vertigo & Dizziness in Asheboro
Pro-PT understands vertigo and dizziness are fairly common occurrences. Everyone typically knows someone who suffers from either dizziness or vertigo and not every case is the same. Many situations cause these conditions. We use the general term dizziness to describe a sensation of floating, spinning, lightheadedness, and sometimes imbalance. True vertigo can be defined as a perception of spinning or movement, either of the person or the surrounding environment. The reality is there is no movement happening. The Mayo Clinic describes dizziness as one of adults’ most common reasons to visit a doctor. Vestibular issues are examples of some reasons for vertigo or dizziness symptoms. A concussion is also a condition that may be treated by a therapist experienced in Vestibular Rehabiliation. You don’t have to live with these symptoms. Our certified and experienced physical therapists can diagnose your condition and provide effective treatment.
Treating Vestibular Issues to Resolve Symptoms
The vestibular system is part of our inner ear. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a fairly common condition, and Pro-PT can treat the symptoms with different types of maneuvers. Our physical therapists can effectively perform these maneuvers to alleviate the symptoms of vertigo or dizziness quickly. BPPV’s common symptoms include dizziness that lasts a short time and dizziness occurring whenever you look over, roll over, or turn your head quickly. Patients have many other reasons to come to a physical therapist to treat vestibular-related dizziness since a positional maneuver does not alleviate every condition. Our experienced therapists have extensive training in providing effective vestibular rehabilitation to help you control your symptoms. We conduct a thorough examination and assessment to ensure effective treatment for your dizziness and help you understand the causes. We are here to help you.
