Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation is and exercise based approach to the remediation of disequilibrium and dizziness symptoms associated with peripheral vestibular pathology or inner ear disorder.

The goals for the therapy are:
1. To reduce vertigo using habituation exercises
2. To reduce imbalance and ataxia through balance retraining
3. To reduce visual motion sensitivity/ gaze stabilization through
     eye- head coordination exercises
4. To improve physical conditioning

Patients are asked to exercise daily at home and visit the physical therapist during an initial period of 6 to 8 weeks.

The Assessment of function in a patient with inner ear dysfunction focuses on 3 major areas:
1.  Evaluation of the musculoskeletal system
2. Balance and gait assessment
3. Vertigo assessment
