What symptoms does an ENT Institute Physical Therapist Treat?
This is an important question! Our physical therapists help with all sorts of issues from dizziness and vertigo to multiple other balance disorders. They also help alleviate jaw pain and teach good posture habits to our patients.
What makes physical therapy treatment at the ENT Institute different?
Physical therapists at the ENT Institute specialize in a technique called vestibular therapy. Vestibular therapy “is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate problems caused by vestibular disorders, primarily vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls” (VeDA).
How can our Physical Therapists help YOU?
Got dizziness? Vertigo? Balance concerns? Fallen several times in the last year?
It’s more common than you know, and we have REAL solutions to help you!
Your inner ear controls 60% of your balance. That means most likely when your balance is off, there’s something going on inside the ear. Fullness, fluid, unaligned crystals in the ear – it can all affect your balance, causing dizzy spells, vertigo, and falling. Our physical therapists work to find the root cause of what’s going on with your body (possibly, what’s going on with the inner ear), so they can help create a proper plan catered specifically for your needs. We have advanced equipment plus a computerized dynamic posturography machine, designed to assess the systems of your body that control balance. Our therapists also look at how you walk, your overall balance, along with your strength and flexibility to design programs specific to each individual. We offer safety overhead rail systems with harnesses to help you to achieve the best results in the safest environment. Each session is one on one with our therapists to teach prevention, improve balance, decrease associated pain, improve dizziness, and promote wellness.
At the ENT Institute, our therapists are the experts in analyzing the cause for imbalance and teaching you the proper skills to prevent falls. We value your independence and want to teach you the best way to remain self-sufficient!
