Vestibular Rehab Therapy

A vestibular (inner ear/balance) disorder can cause problems with vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and/or imbalance. These symptoms can occur from a dysfunction of the balance organs in the inner ear, or a dysfunction of one or more parts of the central nervous system that help process balance and spatial information. If you are struggling with any of these symptoms our specially trained Vestibular Rehab Therapists can perform a thorough evaluation to assess your individual situation and develop a customized plan of therapy. Your therapist can also help explain the science behind your vestibular problem and how it relates to your daily functioning.

Vestibular Rehab Therapy (VRT)

VRT is a specialized form of therapy that is performed by a certified physical or occupational therapist that is intended to alleviate both the primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders. It is an exercise-based program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance or falls. VRT is customized to address your specific problem with the goal of promoting compensation. Compensation techniques teach the brain to use other senses (vision and body sense) as a substitute for the deficient vestibular system. The three principle methods of exercise include habituation, gaze stabilization and/or balance training. While the vestibular deficit is usually permanent, VRT can help you feel and function much better. An important part of VRT is establishing an exercise program that can be performed regularly at home.
