Vestibular and Balance Training: Why You Need It

Vestibular and Balance Training Apache Junction AZ

Many people discuss vestibular and balance training as interchangeable practices. The term vestibular refers to the space in your head that is known as the inner ear. While there are many common links between them, the team of physical therapists at Continuum Wellness knows that these two types of training are different from each other.

If you have an issue affecting the inner ear, vestibular and balance training from the Continuum Wellness team may be able to help. However, it’s also important for you to be aware that the causes of the conditions leading to these two types of training are very different.

Vestibular disorders are caused by inner ear issues, which can result in vertigo, dizziness and loss of balance. Some of the vestibular disorders that our team sees on a regular basis include:

  • Cholesteatoma, an abnormal skin growth inside the ear
  • Concussions and head injuries
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, a condition causing dizziness when the head is in certain positions

While you may still be having inner ear issues if you have a balance disorder, other causes may include:

  • Muscle imbalances or weaknesses
  • Underdeveloped reflexes
  • Poor posture
  • Bad joints
  • Physical disabilities

If you need training because of vestibular or balance disorder related conditions, our team at Continuum Wellness is ready to help you.
