Can Physical Therapy Treat Dizziness and Vertigo Disorders?
Dizziness is among the most common complaints to PCP’s and can also be difficult to determine the cause and proper course of treatment. While some medications may improve symptoms, they are often ‘maskers’ of your symptoms and do not typically address the root cause of dizziness. In addition, many medications can inhibit or slow down recovery time. With over 15 years of experience in diagnosing and treating patients with dizziness and vertigo disorders, Dr. Hasenmyer can help you determine if Physical Therapy is right for you.
Treating Dizziness or Vertigo with Exercises and Positional Treatment
Many causes of dizziness and vertigo are due to inner ear, or vestibular, disorders. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with “positional vertigo” or BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), this type of vertigo can be resolved 95% of the time with repositioning maneuvers performed by a trained specialist such as Dr. Hasenmyer. In addition to vertigo (room spinning sensation), falls, imbalance and movement-related dizziness can also be improved with specialized physical therapy treatments. Dr. Hasenmyer will provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine if your dizziness or vertigo can be treated with exercises or positional treatment and provide you with an individualized treatment plan.
