If you suffer from dizziness, vertigo, spinning sensations, nausea, imbalance, the feeling of being on a boat or unsteadiness you may benefit from vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT). Physical therapy for vestibular disorders and concussions will focus on identifying possible causes of your symptoms and will then develop a custom exercise-based treatment plan that is appropriate for your situation.
VRT can help with a variety of vestibular problems, examples include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Ménière’s disease, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis. Vestibular rehabilitation is also an essential form of rehabilitation for individuals recovering from a concussion and can be beneficial in aiding in your recovery!
If you are experiencing vertigo, dizziness, headaches, balance problems, concussive side effects or other symptoms that you may suspect are related to a vestibular problem, contact us to find out how you can be evaluated and treated.
