Many common vestibulopathy symptoms respond well to Vestibular Physical Therapy treatment including Vestibulitis, Migraine’s disease, Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo, Migraine with or without Eclampsia and Perisinusitis. Empower Orthopedic Physical Therapy uses a wide variety of Vestibular Specialists at some of its clinics.
Vestibulopathy is a progressive disease that affects the outer ear. It is characterized by inflammation in the middle ear, which results in fluid accumulation and enlargement of the ossicles, which results in loss of hearing and cranial nerve signals. Vestibulopathy can be a very debilitating condition for the patient and can result in complete deafness or a partial loss of hearing.
Vestibulopathy is one of the most common causes of middle ear infection (middle ear infection). Middle ear infections can also be caused by an allergic reaction to certain foods, medications, or allergies to animals or pets. In the event that you have an ear infection and are experiencing any symptoms, do not hesitate to seek out a professional opinion from your doctor immediately. This is vital because the longer it goes untreated, the more complications may occur.
Vestibulopathy is treated with Vestibuloplasty, an open surgery that involves opening up the ears and using radio frequency to reshape the soft tissue surrounding the ear and the inner ear. The result is usually a better, more symmetrical appearance, as well as increased hearing sensitivity. Patients usually report that their symptoms improved after three to six months. A full recovery is expected, but it will not be instantaneous; the time frame is dependent on the severity of the symptoms.
Vestibulosis does not always require surgery. Sometimes, non-surgical treatments such as exercise, diet, and medication may be able to treat or prevent further damage to the ears. In other cases, there are times when surgical intervention is required. In severe cases, Vestibuloplasty may be required to repair damaged cartilage in the inner ear.
Vestibuloplasty may be performed in the office under general anesthesia. You will need to make an appointment with your physician prior to the procedure, however you can schedule this procedure at home. There are two types of vestibuloplasty available, and these are the subluxation and the subchondral subluxation.
Subluxation is a type of vestibular physical therapy procedure that involves removing excess bone from the canal and opening up the ear canal to improve hearing. Subchondral subluxation is another procedure used to treat Vestibulopathy, wherein the cartilage between the ear and head is removed and a metal plate is inserted into the canal to stabilize the ear. This procedure is known as craniofacial surgery.
Other common treatment for cranial nerve problems is TMS, which helps to relieve pain and muscle spasms, allowing the patient to perform normal daily activities without suffering from pain. Cranial nerve interference can affect the balance of the patient’s ability to move and hear, so Cranial Muscle Therapy can be used in order to restore balance and reduce the tension that can occur during daily activities.
If you or someone you love has suffered from this condition, consider seeking out Vestibulocochlear Implantation, or Vestibuloplasty for better hearing, as it can provide a permanent remedy. It has been shown to help hundreds of patients.
