Physical therapy can be used to treat a range of diseases, including dysfunctions of the vestibular system (the inner ear, eyes, and brain), which present with symptoms like dizziness. Vestibular rehabilitation physical therapists can treat Vertigo, the most common vestibular dysfunction, with more than 90% success. Vertigo occurs in 20%-30% of the general population so this is a common issue.

The Vestibular system

The vestibular organs of the inner ear provide the brain with information about changes in head movement. If the vestibular system is not functioning properly, dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, and spatial disorientation can occur.

  • Semicircular canals – anterior, posterior, and horizontal canals respond to angular position changes of the head
  • Otoliths – lined with hair particles that have spontaneous firing rates that respond to gravitational orientation changes
  • Vestibular nerve – last link in the pathway ascending and descending into the vestibular nuclei
  • Vestibular nucleus – located in the brain stem, provides information to the brain
  • Labyrinthe and cochlea – help the inner ear maintain equilibrium for the body

Symptoms

  • Dizziness
  • Feeling “off-balance”
  • Blurred vision
  • Light-headedness
  • Spinning sensations
  • Nausea resulting from feeling as if the world around you is moving
  • Unexplained loss of balance with position changes and during functional activities

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehab can include learning repositioning maneuvers designed to eliminate the occurrence of vertigo with position changes, balance training to assist in preventing falls during daily activities, and stretching and strengthening exercises designed to improve balance during standing and walking.

Real People, Real Testimonials.

"The therapists and staff at the Twin Boro in North Brunswick truly place their patients first. My six month experience at this office was outstanding. Coming to Twinboro, I was unsure of my diagnosis, but with the help and dedication of my therapist Ivana, answers were found and exercises were set in place to treat my symptoms. Ivana made coming to therapy an enjoyable experience with her attention to detail, compassion, and sociability. It was evident through the environment Ivana created for that she listens to her patients and makes decisions with the best interest of the patient in mind. If you need to attend physical therapy and are in the area, Twin Boro in North Brunswick is the right choice!"

“As a new patient I was a little nervous of not knowing what to expect from Twin Boro. But, since the first day of therapy treatment the staff made me feel like I was home. They really showed how much they care for their patients.”

"I went to the Westwood Office for therapy on my foot...I found everyone from office to therapists to be pleasant, attentive, knowledgeable, and the facility is run like a well-oiled machine! I especially want to thank Mark for my foot feeling better than it has in 7 years! I will definitely recommend Twin Boro Westwood to any one of my friends! Thanks again to all the staff!"
