This Therapy Helps Overcome Dizziness and Balance Issues

Do you find yourself dealing with dizziness or balance issues?

Doctors say that there is a specific therapy to help with that.

Many conditions, such as an injury to the head, inflammation of the inner ear, migraines, medications, circulation issues, high/low blood pressure, anxiety, hormone changes, and more, can trigger dizziness.

Also, the older we get, the more likely it is to suffer from dizziness or other balance issues.

The experts say that dizziness or balance issues can express themselves differently. When it comes to dizziness, people can experience nausea, vomiting, headaches, a feeling of not being able to walk properly, a sensation of spinning, lightheadedness, or sensitivity to motion.

How to Treat Dizziness or Balance Issues

One of the latest and many practitioners say the best treatments for dizziness is something known as “vestibular therapy.”

In vestibular therapy, the patient is exposed to a little bit of whatever makes them dizzy so their body can be “trained” to adapt and experience fewer symptoms over time.

Depending on what’s causing the dizziness, therapy can start to improve the issue over the course of a few visits – while some conditions may require a longer course of treatment.

According to Harvard Health, here are some things you can do to improve your balance.

  • Walking, biking, and climbing stairs strengthen muscles in your lower body. A recumbent bike or stair stepper is a safe way to start if your balance needs a lot of work.
  • Stretching loosens tight muscles, which can affect posture and balance.
  • Yoga strengthens and stretches tight muscles while challenging your static and dynamic balance skills.
  • Tai chi moves, which involve gradual shifts of weight from one foot to another combined with rotating the trunk and extending the limbs, offer a series of challenges to improve your balance.

If you are experiencing dizziness or balance issues, it is recommended that you see your primary care physician first. They can try to get to the root of your problem and determine if you qualify for vestibular therapy.
