What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular therapy/rehabilitation is a physiotherapy treatment program that involves an appropriate exercise-based approach to retrain balance.

  • Position or movements that cause dizziness.
  • Balance deficits that may interfere with your ability to perform daily activities such as dressing, bathing, walking, driving, or shopping.
  • Visual function as it relates to eye-head co-ordination required for reading, driving or walking.

Your Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy program includes:

  • Exercises to help you stop or reduce symptoms of dizziness.
  • Advanced balance and gait retraining.
  • Compensatory techniques you can use to decrease symptoms of  dizziness and imbalance while performing daily activities.
  • Specific vestibular exercises.
  • Supervised therapy sessions to monitor progress and continually challenge the vestibular, visual, and balance systems.
  • Repositioning maneuver for B.P.P.V (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) which is a condition where crystals are caught in the inner ear.

  • Labyrinthitis: inflammation of the labyrinth.
  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): A condition where free-floating calcium particles move into semicircular canals causing vertigo or spinning with changes in head position.
