Vertigo and Integrative Rehab
Vertigo is a sensation of feeling imbalanced. If you have dizzy spells with change of position or at rest, you may have a vestibular disturbance, which means there is an imbalance with movement, dizziness, visual problems, and/or ringing the ear.
The cause of vertigo can be dehydration, glucose imbalance in diabetics, fluctuation of blood pressure, and side effects of medications, migraine headaches, concussions, head injuries, brain tumors, or jaw pain. Vertigo sufferers will benefit from vestibular rehabilitation therapy, which is a specialized therapy to alleviate primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders.
It is an evidence-based exercise program administered by a therapist that is trained and certified in Vestibular Therapy. Craniosacral therapy is added to the program, which will help with quality of life, improve safety and balance to help help prevent falls.
At Vital Energy, our therapists have extensive experience treating migraines and TMJ, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction. This disorder restricts your ability to move your jaw up and down and side to side, affecting everyday activities such as speaking or chewing. It can be caused by grinding your teeth, arthritis in the joint, or stress that causes you to tighten facial and jaw muscles. TMJ and frequent migraine headaches are usually closely related.
