Regain Your Balance with our Vestibular Treatment Plans!

Have you been feeling off steady or unbalanced? If so, you could benefit from balance and gait training.

Feelings of dizziness or vertigo can greatly limit your daily life, making it difficult for you to perform even the simplest tasks without feeling as if you might fall over.

At Full Circle Physical Therapy, we offer some of the most effective vestibular rehab services in Monterey, aimed at retraining your vestibular system to regulate feelings of stability and balance.

Balance & gait training, defined

Balance & gait training is also referred to as vestibular rehabilitation, and is conducted through a process of “adaptation and compensation.”

This means that the vestibular system is actually being “reprogrammed” through both passive and active therapies to form connections with the brain on adjusting imbalances and regaining stability.

Some common balance disorders that we treat through balance and gait training include:

  • Migraines
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Stroke

At Full Circle Physical Therapy, we provide balance and gait training for our patients suffering from balance disorders in Monterey and surrounding areas.

Balance disorders refer to a broad range of conditions, but they are all connected by the effect they have on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear.

So, why am I feeling dizzy?

76 million Americans will experience some sort of dizzy spell or vertigo at some point in their lives. In fact, the second most commonly reported complaint within doctors’ offices is dizziness and loss of balance.

These are both extremely common conditions that can affect your equilibrium, making you feel off balance.

Symptoms can vary from acute to chronic and in some severe cases, they can even be indicators of serious health risks.
