If you are experiencing dizziness, it can be overwhelming, frustrating and debilitating at times. Many people end up seeing multiple physicians and scheduling tests upon tests, which many times come out negative or inconclusive. There are Physical Therapy clinics who specialize in treating balance and dizziness disorders and have certified Vestibular Physical Therapists on staff. Some of these clinics feature advanced testing for balance, inner ear and neurological dysfunction and may include an Audiologist who is an integral part of their team. Besides making a visit to your family doctor or ENT, Vestibular Rehabilitation is great avenue to start receiving help and in the long run can be cost efficient. Who wants to pay for multiple tests that aren’t specific to your problem? When looking for a physical therapist who claims to treat vertigo or other balance conditions, ask them what, and how much, vestibular training they’ve received. Also inquire about sophisticated testing and treatment equipment such as; Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) with Virtual Reality, Videonystagmography (VNG), Video Head Impulse Test (vHIT), an Overhead Safety Harness System, TRAZER, and possibly even a Terrain Room to treat you in a real life environments. By using their skill and education, and the above mentioned equipment, a properly trained Vestibular physical therapist is able to provide relief for Vertigo sufferers and improve Balance.

You want to receive the most successful help to identify the problem and have targeted physical therapy to correct it.

“I highly recommend Krysta @ FYZICAL. After my surgery I thought I would go to PT a couple times & figure out what I could do at home to get back to normal. I was wrong. Krysta helped me to get my range of motion back and helped my big scar disappear. It was easy to schedule appointments. "
