Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized therapy designed to address balance and dizziness issues often associated with inner ear disorders or other vestibular system problems. This form of therapy employs specific exercises and maneuvers to help patients alleviate symptoms such as vertigo, imbalance, and spatial disorientation.

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

 

Vestibular physiotherapy is an exercise-based programme used to help patients who present with balance problems or dizziness. Through vestibular rehabilitation, physiotherapy can teach the brain to use other senses to support the deficiencies in the vestibular system to help you return to your daily life.

 

Depending on the vestibular problem(s) identified, we will prescribe treatment for you, which will include: (1) Habituation, (2) Gaze Stabilization, and/or (3) Balance Training.

Who needs Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Patients that are referred for vestibular physiotherapy and rehabilitation are those diagnosed with dizziness, vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), neck-related dizziness and migraines. These symptoms can diminish one’s quality of life and contribute to emotional problems, like anxiety and depression.

 

Vestibular Rehabilitation can also be useful for those who have had a stroke or a brain injury that causes them to fall.

What can I expect at my sessions?

 

Our physiotherapists first start with an assessment to evaluate your symptoms. This will include:

  • Balance and leg strength/flexibility

  • Gait (how you walk)

  • Visual stability

  • Positional testing

 

After determining the problems related to the vestibular disorder, our physiotherapists will then provide a customised rehabilitation plan for you.
