Vestibular Rehabilitation

Patients suffering from a vestibular -inner ear- disorder will experience symptoms such as dizziness or vertigo and problems with balance. These symptoms can sometimes lead to secondary symptoms such as headaches, nausea, and a decrease in strength and function due to reduced activity levels. Vestibular Rehabiliation (or VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to decrease and eliminate these uncomfortable and debilitating symptoms by promoting central nervous system compensation for inner-ear deficits. Exercises could include coordination of head and eye movements, desensitization of the vestibular system to symptoms of dizziness, and promoting improved overall fitness, endurance, and balance.
