Physical therapy treatment addresses dizziness by assessing
balance, teaching adaptive strategies, and strengthening postural
stability. Dizziness is the most common cause of the fear of
falling. There are many perceptions of dizziness such as
unsteadiness, an off-kilter feeling, spinning, lightheadedness, and
blurred vision with movement. Common causes of dizziness may also
accompany neck pain, blood pressure changes, brain damage, tumors,
or strokes. If you feel your dizziness is affecting your daily
activities and have a fear of falling, you should seek a physical
therapist to directly treat vestibular disorders,
orthostatic hypotension, cervicogenic dizziness,
and central nervous system dizziness.

Your Right to Choose
The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
