The vestibular system includes part of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. If this system is damaged by disease, aging, or injury, vestibular disorders can result and can cause symptoms such as vertigo, dizziness, and imbalance. Vestibular Rehabilitation is an exercised based program utilizing the body’s natural ability to compensate for injury or loss. Following a thorough evaluation by our highly trained physical therapist, your treatment will consist of personalized exercises, specific to your diagnosis, including balance and walking activities, eye and head coordination exercises, and at times, head and neck maneuvers.
You may benefit from Vestibular Rehabilitation if you suffer from:
Vertigo/spinning or a sensation of moving when you are sitting or standing still
Difficulty walking due to a sensation of being off balance
Nausea or motion sickness
Poor balance when walking in the dark or on uneven surfaces
Blurred or bouncy vision with head movement
Ear pressure or head fullness
