What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?
Vestibular rehabilitation (VR), or vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of physical therapy that treats the primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders. It is an exercise-based program primarily designed to reduce vertigo and dizziness, visual problems, and/or imbalance and falls. Your inner ear senses your body’s position in space and your brain uses that information to keep your eyes steady when you are moving and to help maintain your balance.
For most people with vestibular disorders, dizziness and balance can improve with consistent practice of the appropriate exercises. This may include head and eye exercises, balance exercises and exercises to improve your gait, strength and endurance. Your program will also include education for safety in your home and community as you recover.
