What to Expect at CORE BALANCE Vestibular Therapy
Symptoms of dizziness and imbalance may be hard to describe or difficult to talk about. Clients often use descriptions or words like foggy brain, difficulty focusing, dizziness, off balance, difficulty walking, nausea, lightheadedness, disequilibrium, vertigo, spinning, jumping vision, difficulty shopping, easily overwhelmed, sensitivity to light or sound, fullness, pressure or ringing in the ears, “wonky” or having a “whoosh” sensation in the head.
Family and friends may have trouble understanding why you look “normal” but are not acting like your normal self. Symptoms can range from mild to overwhelming and they may not seem to have a pattern. This is where the expertise of a knowledgeable specialist in vestibular therapy can help.
During the initial evaluation at CORE BALANCE, you will sit down with a well-trained and caring vestibular therapist and share your symptoms and experiences. She will take the time to listen to your symptoms, provide information in a way to help you make sense of the symptoms you are feeling, and together with you, develop a plan of action to help you with your condition. She is used to helping people with these symptoms. Unusual ways to describe your feelings will not surprise her and your story will be heard and not dismissed.
CORE BALANCE feels education regarding your diagnosis and what to expect along the way are important steps in the vestibular rehabilitation process. This reduces the anxiety that often accompanies and empowers clients towards recovery. CORE BALANCE Vestibular Therapy is here to help guide you through this process.
Our vestibular specialist is accessible and will make sure you do not feel alone in this process. She welcomes communication between appointments whether it is a question regarding an exercise or a celebration of a getting past a barrier. Let her passion help you.
