Balance Exercises Can Help Decrease Nausea

By Suzanne Stoke, Physical Therapist @ Exercise For Balance via

     Symptoms of nausea that accompany vestibular dysfunction or motion sickness can be alleviated with balance exercises. Please see Nausea can be a result of many medical conditions, stress,  medications, illness or motion sickness. Motion sickness has nausea as one of it’s main components. The traditional operational definition of motion sickness has been the onset of vomiting or nausea experienced by the land, air, sea, or space traveler that results in impaired function. To focus on motion sickness, Nearly 60% of astronauts report experiencing motion sickness,as do approximately 30% of ocean liner passengers and nearly 40% of flight trainees in the Royal Air Force.Because impaired function when piloting a plane or ship is not only debilitating but also potentially dangerous, interest in motion sickness has been a focus primarily of the military and aeronautical industries.Motion sickness can be induced, however, by either physical motion or stimuli that result in perceived motion (optokinetic stimuli), such as computer displays. Therefore, employees of airline and cruise ship companies, as well as those who work at computer displays or in other visually provocative situations, are exposed to conditions known to induce motion sickness. From those people who work on computers to individuals who travel on cruises for vacations, the symptoms of motion sickness can be decreased by rehearsing balance exercises and specific stability strategies.

Balance Exercises For Reduced Nausea

      One natural remedy for decreasing nausea that is secondary to motion sickness or vestibular deficits, involves rehearsing balance exercises on a daily basis. The balance system in the brain integrates information from three main sources: the eyes, the inner ear vestibular system and the sense of touch from the feet. An individual can reduce the severity of symptoms of nausea by maximizing their sensory feedback from their feet. Concentrating on the sense of touch from the feet to the ground will enhance that component of sensory feedback to the balance system in the brain. The brain is therefore able to override some of the inner ear incoming information with the sensory input from the feet, thereby lessening the symptoms of nausea. In the Exercise For Balance DVD, you can learn the specific techniques needed to concentrate on the sensory feedback from your feet. You can also learn the appropriate balance exercises needed to enhance both sensory feedback and balance abilities. The DVD is designed and narrated by an experienced Physical Therapist, who leads you through each balance exercise and steadiness strategy.
