Our Vestibular Rehabilitation Program covers a variety of services for the specific needs of each patient.
Dizziness or unsteadiness can make it difficult to perform regular daily activities such as bathing, dressing, or simply getting around. But, rehabilitative exercise may reduce these symptoms, which often stem from vestibular dysfunction. The vestibular system includes parts of the inner ear and brain that process sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements.
Certain head, body, and eye exercises can improve the way the brain processes signals from the vestibular system and coordinates them with information from vision and proprioception (a sense of position/spatial orientation). Home exercises, at an appropriate pace, are an important part of treatment. Your plan will also usually include a progressive fitness program to improve overall energy and wellness. We want to help you resume your regular activities as much and as soon as possible.
Our Vestibular Rehabilitation Service Includes:
- Consultation to determine rehabilitation potential for complaints of dizziness and unsteadiness with a probable vestibular etiology
- Comprehensive examinations to establish baseline function and document change over time
- Development of a customized rehabilitation program designed to improve symptoms and restore function
