About Vestibular Rehabilitation
When someone experiences a problem with their vestibular system, they may be dizzy, have vertigo (spins), experience visual disturbances, and/or have poor balance. Research has shown that vestibular rehabilitation can be effective to improve these symptoms.
What to Expect
Your therapist will complete an assessment of your vestibular system to help determine the cause of your symptoms. Sometimes, vestibular conditions can be helped after a few sessions of treatment. In other cases, more comprehensive rehabilitation exercises may be required to help retain the vestibular system, or help retrain the brain to learn how to use other senses instead (for example, in cases where part of the vestibular system is lost).
