Patients who experience vestibular symptoms may experience spinning sensations, instability, disequilibrium and vision deficits. Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy may all play a role in addressing these symptoms, depending on the cause and the symptoms themselves.
Dizziness and balance deficits can be related to a number of medical conditions ranging from medication side effects, a concussion, Meniere’s disease, Benign Proxysmal Positional Vertigo, Labrynthitis, Traumatic Brain Injury or even a Stroke.
A client with these complaints may receive therapy for balance training, crystal repositioning, vision challenges and education for managing their diagnosis. The therapist would initially perform an evaluation to determine what signs and symptoms are present and then discuss a care plan of education and treatment.
