Do you have dizziness, loss of balance, or vertigo?

If you are experiencing these sensations, you might have vestibular involvement that could be solved through vestibular rehab.

What is Vestibular Rehab?

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits.

VRT is a noninvasive treatment related to your inner ear vestibular system.  It can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including:

  • benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypo function, which reduces inner ear function on one or both sides. This uni or bilateral vestibular hypo function is associated with Meniere’s disease, labyrinthitis, vestibular neuritis.
  • Long-term unresolved inner ear disorders who have undergone a period of medical management with little or no success
  • VRT can also help with acute or abrupt loss of vestibular functioning following surgery for vestibular problems.

3 Systems of Balance

Your balance is composed of 3 systems of balance:

• Eyesight
• Proprioception (your body's ability to feel the ground beneath your feet)
• Vestibular system (inner ear 3D system of balance)

  • Vertigo
  • Loss of balance
  • Dizziness
  • Meniere's disease
  • Labyrinthisis
  • Vestibular Neuritis

Dizziness and vertigo can affect your daily activities, ability to work, and social life. Vestibular rehabilitation involves a number of different treatment protocols depending on one’s underlying condition.
