How VRT Helps with Dizziness
One in three American adults over age 65 experiences falls leading to serious injury or even death on an annual basis. Dizziness is the third most common complaint heard in physicians’ offices. Because we are committed to addressing our patients’ concerns whether common or unique, we are proud to be the only ENT office in Arizona with an on-site physical therapist.
Dr. Stolper, our vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) specialist, provides rehabilitative therapy to our dizzy and gait challenged patients in our state-of-the-art facility.
This unique form of physical therapy targets both the primary and secondary balance problems caused by vestibular disorders. The program is exercise based with the goal of reducing dizziness and vertigo while correcting gate instability in order to prevent imbalance leading to falls.
