Why Am I Feeling Dizzy?

Dizziness is a term used to describe everything from feeling faint or lightheaded to feeling weak or unsteady. Another common term you may have heard before is vertigo or the sense that you or your surroundings are spinning. Both of these issues affect your balance and ability to stay standing still and upright.

If you are always dizzy, you should get your condition checked because it could place you at risk for falls, which can result in serious injury.

A few reasons for balance issues are as follows:

  • Arthritis

  • Stroke

  • Lack of physical activity/movement

  • Aging

  • Inner ear problems related to the vestibular system such as Meniere’s disease

 

Symptoms can vary from acute to chronic, and in some circumstances, they can indicate significant health threats.

 

How Can Vestibular Rehabilitation Help Me?

 

Balance problems include a wide variety of issues, but they are all connected by their impact on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear. Vestibular therapy, also known as vestibular rehabilitation, is a procedure that involves “adaptation and compensation.”

 

During treatment, the vestibular system is being “reprogrammed” to establish associations with the brain to adjust imbalances and restore equilibrium in both passive and aggressive treatments.

 

A few common balance disorders that can be improved through vestibular therapy:

  • Meniere’s disease

  • Migraines

  • Stroke

  • Vestibular neuritis

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)

 

Vestibular therapy may be the difference between you living with constant dizziness and vertigo for the rest of your life, and feeling your best.
