Vestibular physical therapy treatment involves hands-on approaches directed at the vestibular components of the nervous system to address dizziness, disequilibrium, functional mobility problems or other movement disorders that limit function and safety. The vestibular system uses information from the eyes, inner ear, and extremities to help keep your body balanced. Sometimes this information is incomplete or distorted, causing dizziness or a loss of balance. Northern Edge Physical Therapy offers vestibular rehabilitation in Wasilla to aid in improving function and safety.
Dizziness is the third most common reason for visiting a physician, and 85% of dizziness complaints have at least a partial vestibular component. Falls related to dizziness or balance deficits are a leading cause of injury requiring hospitalization. Physical therapy is a common treatment for many vestibular conditions that trains patients to “treat themselves” with exercises they can do at home to prevent future problems.
Northern Edge Physical Therapy understands the challenges faced by those suffering from vestibular problems. We offer a comprehensive vestibular and balance assessment as well as highly skilled therapy to successfully address the most common causes of dizziness and unsteadiness. Our clinicians are experienced and skilled to provide you with the latest and most effective treatment techniques available for your vestibular condition.
