Helpful Types of Physical Therapy
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT)
Did your diagnosis come back negative for Vertigo? Now what?
After a Neurodiagnostic Evaluation, our audiologists in Charlotte may refer you to our physical therapist, Dr. Allison Muth, for Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy if your diagnosis comes back negative for Vertigo (BPPV).
Vestibular Rehabilitation is designed to:
- Target your symptoms at the root
- Help to improve balance naturally through specific exercises
- Bring dizziness relief
We want to help you get back to your normal life!
Whether you are in need of repositioning maneuvers, adaptation, habituation, or imbalance exercises, Dr. Muth will work individually with you to create a tailored plan of care to regain your functional mobility that you can then bring home with you once you feel steady enough to exercise without supervision.
Fall Risk Assessment and Reduction
When you’re reaching for a hat hung high in your closet, or that dish on the very top shelf of your kitchen cabinet, do you ever feel wobbly like you may fall, or have you fallen already?
Maybe you feel unsteady on your feet and have to grasp onto the cart when perusing down the aisles of your local grocery store.
If when completing typical daily activities you find yourself:
- Wishing you had better balance
- Searching for dizziness relief
- Unconfident in your footing
- Nervous about being alone
- Reliant on nearby objects to hold you up
It is time for a fall risk assessment!
In fact, the Cleveland Clinic recommends taking a fall risk assessment annually once you have reached the age of 65. A fall risk assessment will assess your balance and safety throughout your tasks of daily living.
Here’s an alarming statistic
According to our partner, the American Institute of Balance, it is estimated that one-third of adults exceeding the age of 65-years-old fall once in their lifetime, and that these falls can lead to serious injuries at least 30% of the time. We want to lower these statistics!
When suffering from dizziness and imbalance, the prominent concern is the probability of taking hard falls that can lead to serious injuries and in some cases fatality. It is important to take this assessment to gain a grasp of the danger that your body is in, and then take the necessary steps to decrease the probability of falling.
Once you have completed the fall risk assessment, our physical therapist Dr. Muth will perform balance training with you. This is an important type of fitness training that focuses on developing the body’s ability to maintain equilibrium while performing various tasks.
Our physical therapist will also provide suggestions for home modifications to help you stay safe from fall-induced injuries along with your training in order to help reduce your likelihood of falling while your body is still relearning independence.
Balance training exercises are designed to improve:
- Risk of injury
This kind of physical therapy may be what you are in need of to help you feel safe enough to get up and at it again. It does not matter your age; quality of life is important!
Our goal is to ultimately help better your balance, provide dizziness relief, and improve your safety.
Schedule a consultation with our physical therapist Dr. Muth, and let’s get you feeling better!
