The Vestibular system includes parts of the inner ear that detect the position and motion of the head.
This information is integrated with the brain and is critical for controlling balance & eye movement.
Disease or injury in these processing areas can cause vestibular disorders.
Our Specialized Vestibular Rehabilitation program can treat conditions such as Dizziness, Vertigo, BPPV / BPV, Balance disorders, Concussion, Labyrinthitis, Neuritis, Meniere’s disease, etc.
Physical Therapists (PT’s) are experts in “the science of healing and the art of caring.” Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program, designed by our Vestibular physical therapist, to improve balance and reduce problems related to your symptoms.
Our Vestibular Physical Therapists are specially trained to evaluate and treat individuals that suffer from Dizziness, Vertigo, Balance problems.
We conduct a variety of tests to ensure accurate diagnosis, including eye-head coordination tests, positional tests, balance assessment, and more.
Each plan is customized to the unique needs and condition of the patient.
Typical PT session lasts 45 minutes and are recommended 2-3 times per week. The duration of physical therapy will depend on the specific problem and how the body responds to treatment.
In most cases, if the patient completes the full course of treatment, their symptoms decrease significantly or completely disappear.
Our goal is to help the patient return to the highest level of function and independence possible, while improving their overall quality of life – physically, emotionally and socially.
