Your body generally balances just fine on its own. Sometimes though, injury or environmental changes can keep that from happening. You may be dizzy more often or feel like you just can’t walk right or keep your balance. Through physical therapy for balance issues and mobility improvement therapy, you’ll feel righted again.
Balance training is a type of mobility improvement therapy that seeks to treat incorrect balance. Here are the three training options:
Physical therapy for balance issues can be a very effective treatment. Balance issues are quite serious and may be a symptom of dehydration, infection, cardiac problems, and even diabetes. By ignoring your balance issues, you’re doing your health a disservice.
After the initial balance training sessions, there’s still more you can do at home to monitor your health. This includes balance exercises, vestibular or eye-tracking exercises, posture retraining, and strength exercises. Ask your physical therapist before starting any of these exercises.
