Vestibular Rehabilitation


We now offer a VESTIBULAR PROGRAM WITH A CERTIFIED VESTIBULAR THERAPIST

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is an exercise-based therapy designed for patients with balance, dizziness, and vision issues. As both children and adults can be affected by dizziness, we can create a program to match any age or physical limitation. While it may be impossible to eliminate the symptoms of dizziness, Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy, or VRT, can reduce the sensory symptoms associated with vestibular issues.

Excellent results have been achieved with ongoing VRT by creating better neuromuscular coordination and better balance, especially when the patient is moving. VRT can be useful after only a few sessions or may require a much more extended period, depending on the problem and needs of the patient. But VRT is an excellent option which often provides results for patients who have an ongoing vestibular condition, regardless of the cause.
