How is it Diagnosed? 

When you are experiencing dizziness, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis and thorough assessment in order to determine the true cause. At Zion Physical Therapy, we have vestibular physical therapists who are specially trained in identifying and addressing vestibular and balance issues. 

We observe your eye movements, head movements, and test your balance to determine what is affected, and help us narrow down what structures are leading to your dizziness. Our goal is to provide a personalized plan to help relieve your symptoms and get you back to doing what you love. If you have seen a doctor before your first session, we will follow up to coordinate your care.

What To Expect At Vestibular Physical Therapy:

At your first visit you and your physical therapist will discuss when your symptoms started and what activities provoke your symptoms. Your physical therapist will look at your eye movements, neck and head movements, and balance in order to determine where your dizziness is coming from. This will help determine what exercises to continue with in order to help prevent more dizziness or balance issues and restore you to your full function. 

Treatments Offered:

  • Dix-Hallpike Maneuver

  • Neuro Re-Education

  • Repositioning Maneuvers

  • Balance Training

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Dizziness and balance issues affect 15-20% of adults every year and can be a large contributor to disability, stress, and healthcare costs. Dizziness can be caused by a number of things, but all of them affect the vestibular system. The Vestibular system consists of the brain, nerves, eyes, and inner ear that relay the position of the body and head in space in order to keep you upright. If there is a disruption in the vestibular system, your brain thinks your head is moving when in reality, it is not, resulting in dizziness or imbalance.
