Idaho Falls has all four seasons, but winter can seem especially long at times. It can be even more complicated getting around on slick and snowy surfaces when your balance is compromised. We want you to know that you do not have to live in a state of constant worry about falling. Dizziness, imbalance, and vertigo can make daily life challenging.
Vestibular disorders are more common than you might think, and many people do not know that physical therapy could be the solution to overcoming balance-related issues and dizziness. Because the vestibular system is what controls balance, if that area is damaged for any reason then imbalance will likely follow. Vertigo is likely a more familiar term that people use as an umbrella for all dizziness. However, vertigo only makes up a small part of all vestibular disorders.
