Physical Therapy for Balance and Dizziness/Vestibular Issues
Vestibular conditions such as vertigo, dizziness, and disorientation are side-effects that tend to affect patients who are suffering from balance-related disorders. Customarily, geriatric patients are more susceptible to experiencing complications related to maintaining balance. However, balance disorders can affect patients of all age groups, and these conditions are never to be taken lightly.
For most patients, dizziness and other conditions tend to crop up when standing for a prolonged period. Symptoms can also develop when you are lying or sitting down, with sensations that feel as though you’re spinning or floating. Vertigo is commonly referred to as an intense feeling of dizziness, that often seems as though it’s never-ending. Other potential symptoms of a balance disorder can include the following:
- Sensations of spinning or dizziness – which can be due to vertigo.
- Inability to keep your balance when walking. Constantly staggering your feet.
- Falling sensations when moving.
- Inexplicable lightheadedness, or feeling as though you’re about to faint.
- A spontaneous blurring of your vision.
- More severe symptoms can include nausea or vomiting, perhaps even increased anxiety or panic.
Unfortunately, many balance disorders tend to develop suddenly without any warning. Potential causes can include complications from a head injury or low blood pressure.

If you’re visiting Advance Physical Therapy for the first time, we ask that you please provide your physician referral or any needed prescriptions, an insurance card, any required registration forms, your driver’s license, and the previously mentioned co-payment (if necessary). A change of clothes may also be useful, should you be coming from work and are more comfortable in athletic attire.
HOW DOES PHYSICAL THERAPY WORK?
Upon visiting our facilities for the first time, our team will perform a physical evaluation to determine any current health issues and assess your limitations. Diagnosis is critical for determining the type of treatment and care that you will receive. From there, goals will be put into place. These goals will be unique to each patient, but they could pertain to improving flexibility, increasing strength, or boosting your range of motion.
