Vestibular Therapy

GREG W.

I tore a muscle in my calf a month ago. I was in considerable pain and couldn’t walk more than a few feet. After going here twice a week, my calf is stronger than before the accident because they gave me strengthening exercises.

The second most commonly reported complaint within doctors’ offices is dizziness and loss of balance. In fact, 76 million Americans will experience some sort of dizzy spell or vertigo at some point in their lives. These are both extremely common conditions that can affect your equilibrium, making you feel off balance. Symptoms can vary from acute to chronic and in some severe cases, they can even be indicators of serious health risks.

Feelings of dizziness or vertigo can greatly limit your daily life, making it difficult for you to perform even the simplest tasks without feeling as if you might fall over. Fortunately, at Total Function Physical Therapy, we offer some of the most effective vestibular rehab services in Colorado Springs, aimed at retraining your vestibular system to regulate feelings of stability and balance.

What is vestibular therapy?

At Total Function Physical Therapy, we provide vestibular therapy for our patients suffering from balance disorders in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. Balance disorders refer to a broad range of conditions, but they are all connected by the effect they have on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear.

Some common balance disorders that we treat through vestibular therapy include:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Migraines
  • Stroke

Vestibular therapy, also referred to as vestibular rehabilitation, is conducted through a process of “adaptation and compensation.” This means that the vestibular system is actually being “reprogrammed” through both passive and active therapies to form connections with the brain on adjusting imbalances and regaining stability.
