Dr. Madison Oak, The Vertigo Doctor: How Vestibular Physical Therapy Can Retrain Your Balance System
Your vestibular system is critical for balance and spatial orientation so what happens when this vital system goes offline? Imagine experiencing double vision, vertigo, frequently falling and feeling like the horizon moves as you walk.
These are all symptoms of vestibular dysfunction, something that as many as over 35% of adults over the age of 40 experience. Treating vestibular symptoms can be complicated and often the most successful treatment plans include a multimodal approach, and that’s where vestibular physical therapy comes into play.
Today’s guest, vestibular physical therapist, Dr. Madison Oak, will give you a preview of what vestibular physical therapy is, who can benefit from it, and the best ways to incorporate it into your treatment plan.
