Dizziness, Vertigo and Vestibular Rehabilitation

Dizziness affects 15-20% of adults every year. Some people have a quick onset of severe vertigo while others have more mild and persistent dizziness. Dizziness is often caused by the vestibular system, which is a small structure in your inner ear. People who have issues with their vestibular systems often also have balance disturbances. Some people may begin experiencing these symptoms after a concussion or whiplash injury. Vestibular dysfunction may also present as lightheadedness, disturbed vision, brain fog, and nausea. A qualified MOST Physical Therapist can evaluate your symptoms and determine the right course of treatment for you.
