Learn About Vestibular and Balance Rehab in Aberdeen, NJ by Calling (732) 333-6360

At ProFysio Physical Therapy, we find that many people do not begin taking steps to find out the root cause of their symptoms or difficulties until they are in a great deal of pain or unable to function normally. Vertigo is one such problem, and many people do not seek help until they are in serious pain or are unable to walk, drive, or perform other normal tasks.

However, it doesn’t have to snowball into a major life-disrupting issue before you get the care you need. If you are able to tell the difference between a minor dizzy spell and symptoms of vertigo, you may be able to begin treatment and keep it from getting worse.

As the source of the problem goes untreated, your symptoms may become worse. However, don’t wait until your discomfort becomes unbearable before requesting the help of a professional. If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, even only in short bursts of several minutes, get in touch with someone who can help.

Vestibular Therapy in Aberdeen

Sometimes vertigo goes away on its own and the brain is able to acclimate and restore balance. However, it is always better to check in and ensure your symptoms are not the result of something serious, such as an inner ear infection or a brain tumor.

In many cases, vestibular therapy is a great option for people who are experiencing symptoms of vertigo. It directly addresses the body’s vestibular system, which is comprised of the structures, canals, and membranes that make up the inner ear, which communicate with the brain about the position and movements of the body. Depending on the source of your vertigo and your specific symptoms, vestibular therapy may involve any of the following:

  • Balance training
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Posture exercises
  • Retraining for neck, head, and eye motions

Because vertigo can come from a variety of sources and combinations of problems, vestibular therapy doesn’t look the same for every client. At ProFysio Physical Therapy, we pride ourselves in providing personalized care for every patient and ensuring your specific needs are met. We serve the Aberdeen and Monmouth County areas, and have helped thousands of patients in New Jersey achieve reduced pain and improved quality of life.
