We at Pain Care Associates are pleased to give patients a one-stop resource for chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy. Some of the problems that we often help our clients with are balance issues and Vertigo. To help achieve the quickest and most effective recovery, we use Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy. This type of therapy is centered around exercise with a physical therapist. When combined with chiropractic adjustments, patients can enjoy relief quite rapidly in many cases.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is used to help with many different types of vestibular issues. Those can include: Inner ear function problems, balance issues, labyrinthitis, Vertigo, and vestibular neuritis. One of the really unique things about Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is that it can help people at nearly any stage of the above problems. For example, even a patient who may be suffering from a sudden issue with vestibular functionality after a surgery could greatly benefit from this type of treatment. Similarly, a patient who experiences only mild issues with balance from time to time may also benefit enormously.
Anytime that your vestibular organs suffer damage, whether this happens via disease or through an injury, there is a disconnect with your brain. The brain is accustomed to getting signals that help relegate equilibrium and body motion, but when it is no longer getting these signals (or when the signals are unreliable) many problems can result.
The lack of proper information to the brain can lead to issues like Vertigo and problems with balance. Although the human body does have its own form of treatment for these issues, something known as vestibular compensation, it is unfortunately not always successful. The body may learn to adjust only partially, or the body may start to depend too heavily on the eyes or the limbs rather than depending on the signals it should be getting. This, in turn, leads to issues with the muscles, joints, spine, and more.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy, often referred to simply as VRT, is one of the most effective ways to help people with issues with balance and Vertigo. This program is basically rooted in exercise. With the specific targeted exercises that your physical therapy provider will teach, you can train your body to compensate for the vestibular problems that are causing your issues. A chiropractic provider can also provide relief from the issues with the spine, muscles, and joints that may have resulted from vestibular issues.
Every treatment plan for Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is unique because it is created based on the specific vestibular problems of the patient. Different physical therapy exercises train your brain to better process the signals it receives, which will ultimately allow for a very targeted treatment of your specific problems.
