Vestibular rehabilitation is an evidence-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits and for the correction of positional vertigo causes. Our specialty program can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Ménière's disease, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis.
Our specialty trained, licensed physical therapists will begin with a medical history that includes observing and measuring posture, balance and gait, and compensatory strategies. The assessment may also include tests that measure how well a person's eyes coordinate with head movements and the responses of the vestibular system to movement and positioning of the head. Other assessments include specialized screening tests. Based on the test results, a custom tailored treatment plan to address your deficits will be made. This may include techniques to retrain your brain to improve coordination, proprioception and balance. Our therapists are also trained in a specialized maneuver to decrease vertigo called a canalith repositioning procedure. Our specialty trained therapists have treated hundreds of patients with vertigo and balance problems with a high success rate.
If you suffer from dizziness, poor balance or walking difficulty call us today to schedule an evaluation.
