What is Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy? 

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is a specialized form of therapy that addresses dysfunction of the vestibular system that can result in symptoms including dizziness, vertigo, blurred vision, or imbalance and falls. 

 

The vestibular system is responsible for your equilibrium. It consists of small organs within your inner ear that provide feedback to your brain regarding your head or body position.

When there is a dysfunction of the vestibular system, the brain receives conflicting information which can contribute to abnormal symptoms including dizziness and vertigo. 

 

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is based on the principle of compensation. VRT includes an individualized exercise program designed to help the brain recalibrate the conflicting information and ultimately resolve your symptoms and improve your quality of life.

Treatment: 

Canalith Repositioning Maneuevers

This is a treatment for BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) which is the most common cause of vertigo. The maneuvers include moving the head and body in certain positions to allow gravity to put the displaced “crystals” back in place.

Gaze Stabilization Exercises

Gaze stabilization exercises are designed to improve control of head and eye movements in order to reduce blurred vision with head movement. This is appropriate for those who have difficulty seeing clearly while moving their head or while navigating their environment. 

Habituation Exercises

Habituation exercises are designed for those who report dizziness or vertigo with particular head or body movements as well as those who experience symptoms in a visually stimulating environment. The goal of habituation training is to reduce symptoms through gradual exposure to the movements or environments that provoke symptoms so the brain can compensate and learn to ignore the abnormal signal.

Balance Training 

Balance exercises are used in order to improve your equilibrium and balance during walking and daily activities. Exercises are specific to your individual needs. In order for balance training to be effective, exercises must be challenging enough to make you feel unsteady, but not fall. It is recommended to perform balance exercises at least 3 times per week.
