Dizziness

Symptoms of dizziness can result from many conditions such as; (vestibular) inner ear disorders, neck injuries or muscle tightness, neuropathy, central nervous system problems, metabolic issues, or psychological disorders. Our therapists are trained to screen for more serious conditions (such as neurological and cardiovascular disorders) as well as effectively evaluate and treat conditions which are appropriate for physical therapy intervention.

Dizziness is a common symptom reported during doctor and emergency room visits. Dizziness is subjective and can be described in many different ways. Describing dizziness accurately is helpful for successful diagnosis. Dizziness can be described as a sensation of fogginess, spaciness, haziness, lightheadedness, faintness, or unsteadiness. Unlike dizziness, vertigo is the illusion of movement or spinning. Vertigo is described as either the spinning or movement of the room or surrounding objects, or self-spinning. Disequilibrium means unsteadiness, imbalance, or loss of equilibrium, which typically occurs when one is standing, moving or walking.
