Do you suffer from dizziness or vertigo? During these trying times, it’s important to prioritize your health and well-being. With the help of Glenridding’s #Dizziness & Vertigo Rehab program, you can finally feel at ease again.
WHAT IS DIZZINESS & VERTIGO REHAB?
Dizziness and vertigo rehabilitation is a specialized form of rehabilitation designed to help individuals who experience dizziness, vertigo, and balance disorders. Dizziness is a sensation of lightheadedness or unsteadiness, while vertigo is a feeling of spinning or movement, even when you’re not actually moving. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of conditions, including inner ear disorders, head injuries, and neurological disorders.
The goal of dizziness and vertigo rehabilitation is to help individuals reduce or eliminate their symptoms and improve their balance and coordination. The rehabilitation program may include exercises and activities that are designed to improve the function of the vestibular system, which is responsible for maintaining balance and spatial orientation.
The program may also include exercises and activities to address other factors that can contribute to dizziness and vertigo, such as visual impairment, muscle weakness, and cognitive impairment. This may include:
- Vestibular rehabilitation: This may involve exercises designed to improve balance, reduce dizziness, and improve coordination.
- Gaze stabilization exercises: These exercises can help improve eye movements and reduce dizziness during head movements.
- Balance training: This may involve exercises that challenge balance and coordination to improve overall balance.
- Strengthening exercises: These exercises can help improve muscle strength and reduce the risk of falls.
- Cognitive therapy: This may involve exercises designed to improve memory, attention, and problem-solving skills.
- Adaptation exercises: These exercises can help the brain adjust to changes in the vestibular system and reduce dizziness and vertigo symptoms.
Overall, dizziness and vertigo rehabilitation is a personalized program that is tailored to an individual’s specific needs and goals. It is important to work with a qualified healthcare professional at Glenridding Physio to develop an effective rehabilitation program.
