Balance Disorder Treatment

Balance disorders can have a wide range of causes, from a head injury to inflammatory conditions affecting the inner ear. The feelings of persistent dizziness and disorientation can have a severe negative impact on your activity level and ability to accomplish basic tasks.

Physical therapy to treat a balance disorder can be an effective way to manage this condition and help you return to a healthy and active lifestyle. At our two state-of-the-art Jacksonville, North Carolina, clinics we have expert therapists with solid experience in helping patients overcome a balance disorder and get their life back on a firmer footing.

To help you better understand how we can help, we’ve prepared the following practical guide to our treatment approach. We also welcome you to reach out to us with any questions or for more information about our treatment options.

Balance disorder treatment with a physical therapist

Patients coming to us for help overcoming any form of balance disorder can first expect to receive a thorough diagnostic evaluation. This will generally consist of a review of your medical history, a discussion of your specific symptoms and triggers, and a physical evaluation that includes movement, gait and balance tests.

From there, your physical therapist can make informed recommendations about options to help you develop a comprehensive treatment plan. Balance disorders can often be improved with the following methods:

  • Targeted exercises to improve gait and balance
  • Posture training
  • Neck mobility and stretching exercises
  • Vision stability therapy
  • Walking exercises

You will also generally be given instruction and advice on exercises and steps you can take at home to improve balance as you go through your day.
