If you experience balance issues you probably feel dizzy, lightheaded, or like the room is spinning. Sometimes these sensations happen whether you’re standing up or sitting down. Your bones, muscles, joints, eyes, nerves, inner ear, heart, and blood vessels must all function properly in order for proper balance. When one of these is not working well, balance issues may occur. Fortunately, aquatic therapy can help. If you’re suffering from balance problems and you need aquatic therapy in Perry Hall to relieve your symptoms, discover Comprehensive Spine & Sports Center in Essex.
Symptoms and Causes of Balance Problems
Common symptoms of balance problems include feeling like you might fall, vertigo, or experiencing a floating sensation. Additionally, your vision may become blurry. Balance problems can be due to inner ear complications, low blood pressure or even after recovering from a stroke or other health issue. Loss of balance is a worrisome condition. If you feel unsteady on your feet, you may fall and break a bone or hit your head. On the other hand, good balance helps steady your gait, allows you to get up from a chair without falling and climb stairs without tripping.
Aquatic Therapy Can Help You
How can aquatic therapy aid balance issues? The buoyancy, warm temperature, and viscosity of water in a therapy pool all play a role. Buoyancy decreases the impact of gravity, allowing significantly greater ease of moment even with weak muscles. It also relieves pain caused by weight-bearing issues. Warm temperatures reduce pain and anxiety, enhance the nervous system, and improve muscle tone. Exercises in the pool build core strength and allow you to feel more comfortable as you do not have the fear of falling.
