Dizziness is a horrible symptom and those of you who have experienced it or now suffer from dizziness know you need help and fast. Dizziness caused by motion can be the most frustrating and debilitating. Motion dizziness ranges from mildly annoying to completely incapacitating which often causes us to avoid activities such as riding in a vehicle, flying on a plane or taking a cruise. Sometimes we feel “it’s always been this way” and sometimes it develops later in life. Regardless, it is very treatable!
The cause of motion sensitivity is a mismatch of cues received by the brain. There are 3 systems sensing information: touch, vision, and inner ear. For instance, as a passenger in a vehicle you have stable touch cues because your car seat is not moving relative to your body, however your vision is receiving conflicting cues. The inside of the car is not moving relative to you but the outside view is flying past your eyes. Your inner ear is also dealing with conflicting cues as the car speeds up and slows down. If your brain is unable to figure out these conflicting cues, you will feel dizzy! Many people who suffer from dizziness end up with multiple doctor appointments, and the cost can sky rocket. Healthcare costs are a burden for many people. Don’t let “dizziness” put a hole in your pocket. Start with your Family Practice Physician or an Ear Nose & Throat Specialist who will refer you to a qualified Balance & Vestibular Physical Therapy Clinic who employs a Herdman Certified Vestibular Physical Therapist and has the high tech equipment to help your Doctor make a proper diagnosis. Look at choosing a Balance & Dizziness Clinic with a Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP), a Videonystagmography (VNG), and a Video Head Impulse test (vHit) to name a few.

“I had rotator cuff surgery in the spring. Following that surgery my shoulder was very weak and I was unable to move it without pain. I began me therapy with Fyzical and was amazed at how quickly my quality of movement improved with their help. I am now able to move with almost complete range of movement and have most of my strength back. I honestly believe I could not have attained this in less than 6 months with the staff at Fyzical."

“I came in with severe sciatica pain I’ve been dealing with it for years and my chiropractor was unable to solve. By the end of my first visit I was walking again with little pain. I’ve returned to a normal daily routine. I wish I would have come to FYZICAL years ago!"
