Vestibular therapy

Treatment

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy offers hope to people with vestibular (inner ear/balance) disorders and dysfunction. If you’re dealing with these issues, it isn’t just an annoying disruption you can ignore and power through—it’s a genuine quality of life issue! Besides dizziness, people can also experience nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. These symptoms can last for seconds or minutes, but they can linger for hours. Vestibular therapy uses exercises, such as standing and stretching, focusing, and ergonomic training, that teach the brain to compensate for the disorder using its other senses. Pretty cool, right? You'll work with a therapist who will develop a plan for you, and as you (hopefully) get better, you'll even be able to do some of the moves at home.
