Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise approach used to manage persistent dizziness and imbalance in patients with vestibular dysfunction. It is useful in decreasing fall risk, improving postural stability, and decreasing symptoms in patients with vestibular deficits.  The ultimate goal of vestibular rehabilitation is to "retrain" the brain to more effectively process sensory information in order to improve balance.  

Physical and/or occupational therapists have training in the anatomy, physiology and function of the body systems that control balance (visual, proprioceptive and vestibular). The therapist will evaluate the patient to determine the impairment and then design a program of exercises and activities to decrease dizziness symptoms with an emphasis on proper gait and balance. Treatments for vestibular rehabilitation may include therapeutic exercise, manual therapy, neuromuscular reeducation and gait training.  Many of our therapists are specially trained in vestibular rehabilitation, as in benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo or BPPV.
