An exercise program, overseen by an experienced physiotherapist, is designed to improve balance and reduce symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and sensations of moving or tilting. You may experience these feelings or sensations while standing still, lying down, or changing positions. It is possible for these symptoms to exist on a continuous basis or sporadically, lasting seconds, minutes, or hours at a time. An essential goal of treatment is to improve identified deficits. As a result, you will be able to perform tasks of daily living more easily, your risk of falling will be reduced, and your overall quality of life will be improved.
Vestibular disorders can negatively impact all aspects of daily life and reduce quality of life. As a result, people can suffer from depression and anxiety. In addition, one outcome of having a vestibular disorder is that symptoms often lead people to adopt a sedentary lifestyle in order to avoid dizziness or imbalance. In turn, this can result in decreased muscle strength and flexibility, increased joint stiffness, and reduced stamina.
