Vertigo Physical Therapy Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Gonzales & Surrounding Cities

Common Causes of Vertigo

Vertigo can occur for multiple reasons. Patients may have vertigo due to serious conditions such as a stroke or a head injury. More commonly, vertigo is caused by a dysfunction in the vestibular system, Meniere’s disease, migraines, and comorbidities such as low blood pressure and low blood sugar. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a condition where there is interrupted signaling from the inner ear to the brain. This will cause vertigo with movements such as rolling in bed or standing up. It is important to seek a diagnosis from a physician and treatment to improve symptoms of dizziness from a qualified physical therapist at Baton Rouge Physical Therapy.

Physical Therapy for Vertigo

Vertigo is a condition that causes dizziness or a feeling like someone’s surroundings are spinning. Physical therapists at Baton Rouge Physical Therapy will help to identify the source of symptoms and set up a vertigo treatment plan to get their patients moving again. If your physical therapist determines the source of vertigo can be improved with exercises, therapy will help reduce your symptoms of dizziness by gradually introducing safe movement. If you have BPPV, physical therapy will focus on eliminating your dizziness with movement based on maneuvers to solve the issue in your inner ear. 

Best Ways to Treat Vertigo

What is the best treatment for vertigo? Vertigo treatment strategies depend on the source of your symptoms. If the source is a neurologic or cardiac issue, any qualified healthcare provider will refer you to the best specialist. You will likely undergo a few tests to determine the source of your vertigo. If physical therapy treatment for vertigo is appropriate, there is good evidence that exercises designed to challenge the inner ear, balance, and the vision to brain connection can greatly improve vertigo symptoms.
