Always feeling dizzy?
Say goodbye to that with Vestibular rehabilitation.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate problems caused by vestibular disorders, primarily vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, imbalance, and falls.
How does Vestibular Therapy work?
After vestibular system damage, symptoms can be reduced and function can improve because of compensation because the brain learns to use other senses (vision and somatosensory – body sense) to substitute for the deficient vestibular system. However, in some cases, symptoms do not reduce, and for those who continue to have difficulty returning to daily activities, vestibular rehabilitation can assist in recovery by promoting compensation.
Your physical therapist will obtain a detailed medical history, and an examination will also be done for visual stability, oculomotor function, standing balance, stability with walking, and neck mobility and tenderness. Treatment includes some exercises such as habituation exercises, gaze stabilization exercises, balance training exercises, eye movements, stretching and strengthening exercises, and general fitness exercises. We also use the most recent evidence-based tools and modalities that will help you keep your balance.
