Vestibular Rehab


We are pleased to offer vestibular rehabilitation treatments to patients who may benefit from skilled physical therapy intervention.

 

Conditions that may benefit from this include:

◊ Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)

◊ Bilateral and unilateral vestibular hypofunction

◊ Cervicogenic dizziness

◊ Vestibular neuritis

◊ Labyrinthitis

◊ Acoustic neuroma

◊ Visually provoked dizziness

 

Therapeutic treatments provided may include:

Habituation

Reduces dizziness through repeated exposure to dizzying movements and stimuli that allows the brain to compensate for abnormal signaling from the inner ear.

Gaze stabilization

Enhances control of eye movements to improve vision dysfunction that occurs with head and eye movement. Very helpful with patients who have poor vestibular functioning.

Balance Training

Improves steadiness when performing daily activities of living to reduce fall risk and environmental barriers. Includes static and dynamic activities.

Canalith Repositioning Procedures

Repositions canaliths in the ear to cure BPPV. When performed correctly, it has a cure rate of 80% and can treat both canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis.
