Balance and Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vertigo may be due to an inner ear, or vestibular disorder.  Physical Therapists often specialize in an area of therapy called vestibular rehabilitation, in which therapists work to improve the symptoms of dizziness and the balance problems that you may experience.  Therapy for vestibular disorders takes many forms. The type of exercise utilized depends upon the unique problems that the individual demonstrates during the evaluation. Some exercises are geared toward helping with balance, some with helping the brain resolve differences in the inner ear signals, and some with improving the ability to visually focus. In addition, general exercise is often prescribed to improve overall physical health and well-being.

Conditions that may be helped with Vestibular Rehabilitation:

    • BPPV – Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
    • Post-Concussion Syndrome
    • Vestibular Neuritis
    • Dizziness
    • Motion sensitivity
