Dizziness & Balance Clinic — Vestibular

The Sports Plus Dizziness and Balance Clinic is a clinic that specializes in the treatment of the Vestibular System: dizziness, vertigo or balance dysfunction. The Vestibular System is a very complex system that includes parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. If the system is damaged by disease, aging, or injury, vestibular disorders can result and are often associated with one or more of these symptoms:

  • Vertigo and dizziness
  • Imbalance
  • Vision disturbances

Sports Plus Physical Therapists are trained in the assessment and treatment of a variety of vestibular disorders. Goals of therapy emphasize returning the vestibular system to a normal functioning state. Patients receive extensive education to aid in self-management.

Inner ear disorders are usually treatable with physical therapy and are often completely correctable.

Treatment may include:

  • Eye and head movements
  • Balance exercises
  • Repositioning procedures

The goal is to retrain the brain to recognize and process signals from the vestibular system in coordination with vision and proprioception. This often involves desensitizing the balance system to movements that provoke symptoms.
