What can you do for vertigo?
At Sarrica Physical Therapy & Wellness, we utilize the several techniques to treat vertigo in our Brooklyn office, depending on its origin. For benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), we perform specific maneuvers to restore any crystals that have been dislodged. We also utilize balance retraining to prevent falls, manual therapy to restore motion and flexibility, and vestibular ocular reflex retraining to work on gaze stabilization.
Vestibular Rehabilitation is a treatment plan formed by your physical therapist to help regain balance and reduce dizziness.
Our therapists conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine the root cause of your vertigo symptoms. Our vertigo treatments, along with a home exercise program, will help you resolve your dizziness and vertigo symptoms.
