Physical Therapy for Vertigo


Physical Therapy for Vertigo in Layton


Do you experience a dizzy sense of movement, a feeling of falling, or spinning when you stand up or move your head? Vertigo is extremely common and can cause very unpleasant symptoms that affect balance and everyday life. Fortunately, vertigo is very easily corrected with physical therapy in Layton. The Epley Maneuver, a non-invasive physical therapy based maneuver, was developed specifically to treat vertigo. When performed by a professional physical therapist, there is a complete elimination of symptoms in 90-95% of cases. Most patients only need one trip to their physical therapist clinic in Layton while others may need 2-3 sessions to completely eliminate their vertigo. The physical therapists of Rock Run are qualified to diagnose the cause of and to treat vertigo.

While there are various causes of vertigo, Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common cause. BPPV occurs when the crystals of your inner ear become loose and travel down into the ear canal, disrupting the fluid there which leads to false sensations of movements. Determining whether BPPV is that cause of your vertigo or not can be done with the Dix-Hallpike Test in the Rock Run physical therapy clinic in Layton. This quick and simple maneuver is an accurate test of vertigo. If the test shows that BPPV is the cause of your vertigo, then your Rock Run physical therapist will perform the Epley Maneuver or a combination of other exercises that are designed to reduce the symptoms of vertigo and correct BPPV. These simple maneuvers cause the crystals to fall back into their correct place within the inner ear, effectively eliminating your vertigo.

If you're still experiencing balance issues, your physical therapist can teach you how to safely perform the maneuvers at home. Your therapist may also walk you through balance, coordination, and eye tracking exercises to further alleviate your symptoms. If BPPV is not the cause of your vertigo, your Rock Run physical therapist will develop a personalized treatment plan that can help improve your balance, address the root cause of your vertigo, and prevent it from happening again.
