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 Trademark Performance we offer some of the most effective vestibular rehab services in South Holland, IL and Dyer, IN, aimed at retraining your vestibular system to regulate feelings of stability and balance.
What is vestibular therapy?
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program to challenge the brain and nervous system to compensate for disorders of the inner ear, also known as the vestibular system, which causes dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance.
Signs and symptoms of vestibular dysfunction may include:
- Dizziness: A common term people use for their feelings of imbalance and lightheadedness.
- Vertigo: Dizziness characterized by the sense of spinning.
- Disequilibrium: Subjective sense of unsteadiness, imbalance, or loss of equilibrium.
- Oscillopsia: Gaze instability which makes objects look like they are bouncing.
- Tinnitus: Ringing in the ears.
- Spatial Disorientation: Sensation of not knowing where your body is in relation to vertical and horizontal lines.
- Falls: unexplained falls.
Trademark Performance offers a comprehensive approach to vestibular and balances therapy that utilizes the most effective and efficient techniques to achieve the best results. Each patient will receive a thorough one-on-one evaluation to determine the underlying cause of the above-mentioned symptoms. In addition, your balance and fall risk will be assessed to formulate a plan of care to maintain your safety and improve your quality of life.
Our VRT exercises incorporate strength and balance retraining, ambulation while challenging the vestibular system with a variety of head motions, and visual/gaze stabilization to decrease dizziness and vertigo symptoms.
