Vestibular Disorders – What are they?

You might not think physical therapy is a service that could do anything to help you when you are having trouble with dizziness, nausea, or balance, things that fall in the vestibular disorders category (try standing on one foot for a few seconds and think about how long  you can do that without falling over). Physical therapy, surprisingly, can have a profound effect for the better when a person is struggling with these issues.

If you have been diagnosed with a vestibular disorder, you may already know what this means. To learn a bit more about these challenging conditions, please read on.

The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain. These parts help to ‘explain’ the information to your brain regarding balance control and movements of the eye.  Sometimes disease or injury damages these processing areas.  Vestibular disorders can result. These disorders can also result from or be made worse by genetic or environmental conditions. Occasionally, a cause can’t be found.

You may have heard some of the following, if you suffer from dizziness, nausea or loss of balance on a constant or periodic basis:

  • benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • labyrinthitis and vestibular neuritis
  • Ménière’s disease
  • secondary endolymphatic hydrops
  • perilymph fistula
  • superior canal dehiscence
  • acoustic neuroma
  • ototoxicity
  • enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome
  • mal de débarquement
  • vestibular migraine 

It’s surprisingly common

One recent study estimates that as many as 35% of adults aged 40 years or older in the United States—approximately 69 million Americans—have experienced problems with dizziness, nausea and balance that has affected their ability to safely move about their environments.

Physical therapy with a therapist who has experience and training in the treatment of these issues can create profound and lasting positive effects. Many providers may not know that physical therapy can be very helpful in these circumstances.

One of our patients with balance issues told us this: “ I was experiencing terrible vertigo. I decided to call since I had success with an elbow injury. I thought they might be able to help me…helped me overcome my positional vertigo in just three sessions. The staff is very polite and helpful as well. I highly recommend Noah if you have any type of dizziness.” (Elizabeth H.)
