Exercise might not be the first thing you think about when it comes to treating dizziness or vertigo, but it plays a crucial role.
Call our office and we’ll help you get the right diagnosis by evaluating you or referring you to the appropriate doctor. If problems with the inner ear are due to a virus or physical damage, physical therapy can be beneficial. Be warned – the first few days of exercise might make the dizziness worse before it starts to get better. In this case, physical therapy can essentially “recalibrate” the inner ear system. Talk to one of our highly qualified physical therapists to determine how we can help you.
A Word of Caution: If any of the following apply to you, CALL YOUR DOCTOR:
- You experience dizziness without warning
- Some medicines cause you to feel dizzy
- Your previous symptoms are different now – they last longer or feel worse than before
- You experience hearing loss
If you suffer from dizziness and also have any of the following, call 911 or go to the emergency room:
- Head injury Fever over 101°F or 38°C
- Convulsions or ongoing vomiting
