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.

"I have had the pleasure of attending Twin Boro Physical Therapy this past year and prior to Optimum Health becoming Twin Boro, I had been a patient since 2006. The entire staff is very caring, professional, and make your PT sessions fun. There is always something to laugh about and get you through your pain! A special thanks to Keith for all he has done for me over the years!"

“A first class operation, I would recommend Twin Boro to family and friends.”

Carl

"After my back surgery my doctor wanted me for physical therapy. He suggested Twin Boro Physical Therapy as one of the locations to go to. I checked out all the locations in the area and decided to go to Twin Boro. I stopped by on a Saturday but they were closed. Someone was at the desk doing paperwork and gave me all the information that i needed to fill out. She put the paperwork through and gave me a schedule to return on Monday for my first visit.The therapist ( Andrew ) examined me an put me through a series of work outs three times a week along with his daily exam. As each exercise became easier I was given something a little harder. They were slowly building up the strength in my lower back, core, legs and arms. After years of back pain I am now able to begin to get back to a normal life. I had a chance to work with other therapist there, they are all fantastic and there to help us return to a healthy life. The entire staff is was a pleasure to work with. They listen to what you have to say and and pay attention to what you said. I looked forward to going there, the staff was caring, kind and funny at times. I would highly recommend Twin Boro for physical therapy."
