Inner Ear Disorder
March 13, 2015
The vestibular system is the part of the central nervous system that includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. If the system is damaged in any way (by disease, aging, injury), vestibular disorders can occur. While dizziness is the most obvious symptom of an inner ear disorder, there are other symptoms that can be degenerative and cause further problems. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we are proud to offer effective treatments for inner ear disorders as well as comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy. The certified physical and occupational therapists at Sovereign Rehabilitation have received specialized training in treating inner ear disorders and use proven and effective therapies to help patients find relief from their symptoms.
Symptoms that are most associated with inner ear disorders are:
• Vertigo and dizziness (the feeling that either you are spinning or everything around you is spinning)
• Imbalance and spatial disorientation (the inability to remain “grounded” or to walk in the direction you want to go in)
• Vision disturbance (your eyes not focusing on the object that you are looking at, or the need to blink over and over in order to make things come into line)
• Hearing changes (not hearing verbal communication as clearly as you used to)
As with every condition, not all symptoms are experienced by every person who suffers from an inner ear disorder. Also, the type and severity of symptoms will vary from person to person; therefore, only a doctor can truly diagnose an inner ear disorder.
If you have been diagnosed with an inner ear disorder and are searching for relief from your symptoms, please call Sovereign Rehabilitation. We will schedule an appointment with one of our vestibular experts so that you can be on your way to receiving exception, individualized treatment.
