VESTIBULAR REHAB

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program, designed by a specialty-trained vestibular physical therapist, to improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness. Dizziness can be described as:

  • Feelings of unsteadiness

  • Wooziness (swimming feeling in head)

  • Lightheadedness

  • Feelings of passing out

  • Sensations of moving

  • Spinning

  • Floating

  • Swaying

  • Tilting

  • Whirling (sensations known as vertigo)

These feelings or sensations can occur when you are standing still, lying down or changing positions. The symptoms can be constant or episodic in nature, only lasting seconds, minutes or hours.

At your appointment, a physical therapist will evaluate your symptoms and review your medical history. Your assessment will include all or part of the following areas:

  • Balance and/or leg strength/flexibility

  • Gait (how you walk)

  • Visual stability and mobility

  • Neck mobility and neck and arm strength

  • Positional testing, including an inner ear exam

Based on the findings, a plan of care is developed. The goal of your treatment plan is to improve any deficits that were identified. This, in turn, will improve your ability to function in activities of everyday living, reduce your risk for falling and ultimately, improve your quality of life.
