Dizziness - Breakaway Physical Therapy can help

If you’re living with dizziness or a spinning sensation that is causing you to walk into walls - it’s very easy to think that it’s “just something that comes with age”, it’s a bit of “being off balance”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.

You may feel as though there is no particular reason as to why you are feeling your dizziness – BUT it just won’t go away.

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone - we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Dizziness, Vertigo Symptoms and Feeling Off Balance is one of THE most common problems that we see in our physical therapy office in Crofton, Maryland.

And when it comes to living with dizziness, everybody we see wants to know

"Why is This Happening to me?"

or

"Why am I still suffering with dizziness that keeps getting worse after dealing with it for 6 months OR longer?"

Most people hope, that when they start to feel dizzy and off balance, it’ll eventually go away on its own. That one morning they will wake up and like “magic”, they will pop out of bed without skipping a beat with their dizziness being a thing of the past... But then 6 months later you begin to realize that you are still living day to day with the feeling that your world is spinning out of control, almost like someone tilted your body on an axis and your symptoms are often even worse than when it began.

Does this sound Like You?

Does it seem like no one is really listening to you and dismisses you? Everyone tells you “It’s just a fact of life as you get older”. Did you go to the Doctors’ office, and the Doctor told you to rest and “try these medications to settle your symptoms” and let’s “see how it goes”? We hear about these encounters every day at our Physical Therapy office in Crofton.

Then, often 6 weeks later, they end up going back to the Doctor again because it hasn’t gotten any better. Worse, they’re often given yet another prescription of even stronger pills and advised EVEN MORE rest.

Has this type of thing happened to you?

Have you been told a lot of different things by different people? Well, it’s easy to get confused because lots of people are happy to give you their advice and opinions. The internet, google, YouTube are all great places to find “advice”, but it’s important to understand that it is not all credible information.

Maybe your research has led you to believe that you should move less and sit more because it will make your dizziness better in time. Maybe you have read that there is one magic exercise that will be perfect thing to get rid of your dizziness once and for all.

It’s very confusing to know exactly what to do to prevent your dizziness and spinning sensations from worsening. It’s confusing to figure out where your symptoms are originating from and what is causing the imbalance in your system. All this confusion leads people to put off making a decision about what to do to help make their symptoms better. Even worse, many people end up accepting it as “part of life” as a normal way to age and change and that it has to be that way.

Is This How Feel Too?

If you’re currently living with Dizziness, here’s 7 more reasons why it could be lasting longer than it should:

  • 1. You thought it would go away on its own – but unfortunately it didn’t
  • 2. You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take some medications - but the pills did little to help, or they just ‘masked’ your dizziness- and as soon as they wore off, your symptoms were back in full swing to stop you from moving again
  • 3. A family member, or good friend, told you that everybody gets dizzy as they age and that you should just accept it
  • 4. You got help from other Healthcare Professionals or a Physical Therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help or make a difference
  • 5. You’ve tried using things like a walking stick to help with moving around but it’s done nothing to help you feel less dizzy (just more stable)
  • 6. You thought it would be a good idea to rest your body because you experienced intense dizziness and spinning when you are upright moving around, but it is still happening even while you are sitting
  • 7. You tried a few exercises from ‘YouTube’ - but they made things worse in the moment and you didn’t see any positive effect afterwards

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our vestibular specialists at our Crofton Clinic, Breakaway Physical Therapy to find out what can be done to help YOU.

What can I do to get rid Of My Dizziness Quickly?...

Well, here's 4 things you can start with:

  • 1. First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people rest their body turning into lots of inactivity and hoping that their dizziness and spinning with magically disappear with time, waking up one morning to pop out of bed like they used to. However, after dealing with these awful symptoms for 6 months’ time, it’s frustrating that nothing has changed…or it has worsened.
  • 2. Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you ease your dizziness, vertigo, spinning sensations and feeling off balance is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a Vestibular Physical Therapist will help reduce your dizziness, make walking smoother and safer allowing you to get back to being active - and make sure that the problems don’t come back any time soon.
  • 3. Drink more water dehydration is the number one correlation to a very common condition that causes dizziness, known as BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo). When our vestibular system is dried out (the system in our inner ear that is responsible for dizziness), then the crystals in our inner ear won’t be able to stay where they are supposed to be. If you drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water, then your inner ear and dizziness can settle down faster.
  • 4. Get real, “hands-on” Vestibular Physical TherapyVestibular Physical Therapy is proven to help people with dizziness, vertigo, spinning sensations and feeling off balance.

You break away from that feeling of defeat and of powerlessness. You break away from the inferiority context of your body is failing you. You break away through that. And that's one of the things I feel so great about being here. I feel like physical therapy is a great path to take.

I received treatment in a lot of different areas over the years, and I would say to really look into BreakawayPT first because they have such a variety of abilities to address different problems. I can balance, I can prevent falls. I can do so many things that I couldn't do before.
