Where is My Ear Pain Coming From?

Pain in the inner ear (also known as the vestibular system) can be caused by injuries such as concussion, as well as specific conditions including vestibular neuritis or vestibular migraine. Disorders in the vestibular system can also lead to symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo, and balance problems.

Physical therapy can play a significant role in the management of vertigo and ear-related balance issues, as well as alleviating pain.

Common Ear Pain Conditions

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Labyrinthitis
  • Vestibular Neuritis
  • Concussion
  • Vertigo
  • Cervicogenic Dizziness
  • Vestibular Migraine

What & How We Treat

Vertigo
Vestibular Rehabilitation
Muscle, Joint & Posture Issues
Exercises and Education

Vertigo

One common cause of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), a condition where tiny crystals in the inner ear become dislodged, causing a false sense of movement. We can employ a technique called canalith repositioning maneuvers, such as the Epley maneuver, to reposition these crystals and alleviate symptoms.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

This is a specialized form of physical therapy targeting the vestibular system to enhance its adaptability and reduce symptoms associated with dizziness and imbalance.

Muscle, Joint & Posture Issues

Our physical therapists may address contributing factors such as muscle weakness, joint stiffness, or posture issues that can exacerbate balance problems.

Exercises and Education

Through a combination of specific exercises, manual therapy and patient education, our physical therapists can improve your ability to move confidently and maintain balance – ultimately reducing the impact of vertigo and associated symptoms.

I was in PT for and extended period of time and was very happy with the treatment and therapists at Ellite. I worked primarily with Jacquie and Stephanie and attribute my improved mobility and return to activities I enjoy to the care I received. I enjoyed the relaxed, friendly feel of this place as well. I highly recommend them.
I’m so pleased that I’ve found a PT facility that treats TMJ. Haven’t finished my PT yet, but so far I’ve noticed a real improvement. My migraines are definitely reduced in frequency, duration, and intensity.

I was referred here by my dentist for TMJ and I’m so glad I was! My jaw had been locked for 3 weeks and I was having debilitating pain and headaches. After just a few sessions with Andrew and Jackie I had more mobility and less pain. I’ve been going for a little over a month and my jaw is pretty much back to normal.
Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable. They really are doing everything possible to get me back to health quickly. Also when I started I felt broken and within weeks they identified the problem and fixed me. Wonderful!!!

I have been a patient at Elite Therapy Solutions in West Chester since October of 2023. After experiencing a concussion and being referred for occupational and physical therapy, I landed at Elite! Being able to receive both occupational and physical therapy in once place with the convenience of scheduling back to back appointments was one of the best things about my concussion recovery process. The ease of having both therapies in one location and the collaboration between therapists towards my goals played a big role in my progress. Working closely with Mary for OT and Andrew and Jackie for PT, I was able to not only find coping strategies for the difficulties that accompany having a concussion, but also improve upon those areas and get back to my normal functioning. The team at Elite in West Chester had an invested interested in my recovery and made such a difficult situation less daunting. I truly looked forward to spending my afternoons in the office and am quite sad that I graduated from both OT and PT (although I am doing SO MUCH BETTER). I worked with almost all of the therapists over the several months of treatment and was never disappointed. Each clinician showed genuine care and interest in my recovery process every step of the way. Even Amanda (front of office) was such a joy to interact with each visit! Anyone who is lucky enough to work with the team at Elite West Chester will not be disappointed 🙂
