Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy
This is a program that is based on an exercising that’s to reduce the balance and also bring dizziness related problems. There are times when someone feels like they are dizzy and when this occurs one feels like they are not stable at all and they also feel like they can fall at any given time, they feel like they are heavy and can pass out at any given time. When one is standing, or when they are lying down or still when one is changing from one position to another this are the times when one can feel the dizziness in them. This symptoms can even last for seconds, or even some few minutes or at some times it can last for hours.Dizziness can affect the younger people although this are some of the rare cases that we have, mostly it gets to people who are seventy five years and above. Some medications can cause dizziness and this is not the only problem that can cause it, having an inner problem or even a neck dysfunction can cause it, at times it can be a more serious problem like having a problem with your heart or even the brains.
It is not everyone who benefits from this therapy, the ones who actually benefit from it are the people who have had a brain injury, or they have some dizziness , or they find it very hard to balance themselves and if they may be having stroke.Some of the common things that can be helped are if someone is having some blurred vision, headaches, frequent falls, neck tightness, spinning or the need to have to walk holding things.
A therapist should be able to check on some of the things before they do so many things and some of them are how one is able to walk, whether they are flexible or not, whether the neck is flexible or stiff, how they see things and also hwo their inner ears are. When the patient shows the improvement on the neck stiffness and the walking becomes stable and when the inner ear is well than they can be declared fit. When one starts doing their normal work properly and the falls reduces then one can be declared fit. When one is able to balance themselves and they are not feeling the dizziness again after the exercises then you are sure that the problems have disappeared completely which is a good sign for everyone. At times having the vestibular therapy is the best thing that one can have, if at times the problems are persistent then surgeries can be performed.
