Physical therapy can help treat a wide range of disorders, including dysfunctional vestibular system (the inner ear, eyes, brain and abnormal sensation of feet). The vestibular system is the part of the inner ear and brain that coordinates your balance and equilibrium. If dysfunctional, the vestibular system can make you feel dizzy, such as suddenly spinning, tilting, or floating, and cause impaired balance. Symptoms for vestibular dysfunction can be caused by many kinds of pathology and can generally be categorized into two classes, anatomic origin as either central (within the brain), or peripheral (within the vestibular apparatus in the inner ear).
Vestibular disorders may present with symptoms like:
- Vertigo (spinning sensation)
- Floating sensation
- Light headedness
- Ringing in the ear (Tinnitus)
- Hearing loss
- Fullness in the ear
- Nausea/vomiting resulting from vertigo and dizziness
- Impaired coordination
- Double vision
- Blurry vision
- Difficulty driving
- Difficulty walking in the dark or uneven surface
- Difficulty with walking in the crowed area or aisle of grocery store due to increased dizziness.
