Vestibular Rehabilitation/Dizziness Treatment
Dizziness and balance problems may be caused by a problem with the vestibular system. The vestibular system includes your inner ear, brain, and connecting pathways that help control balance and eye movements. If you suffer from dizziness, vertigo, light headedness, imbalance, blurry vision, nausea, or difficulty concentrating, you may have a problem with your vestibular system
What do I do about my dizziness?
Our physiotherapists are trained in vestibular rehabilitation (VRT). VRT is an exercise based program that is designed to make changes to the central nervous system to decrease dizziness and improve balance.
What types of dizziness can physiotherapy help with?
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
- Dizziness from neuritis or labrinthitis
- Unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides)
- Cervicogenic Dizziness (dizziness caused by a musculoskeletal injury such as whiplash)
