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.
