Many people struggle with issues of balance at some point in their lives and it is often no surprise that the source of these issues revolves around inner ear issues. The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory aspects of controlling balance and movements of the eye. Disease, genetic conditions and injury can often be contributors to vestibular disorders.
Signs You May Be Experiencing Vestibular Disorders
- Imbalance and spatial disorientation
- Changes in hearing
- Vision disturbance
- Psychological or cognitive changes
Vestibular rehabilitation can help relieve the effects of these common imbalance conditions. Our goal in treating our patients is to minimize dizziness, prevent falls and improve balance by restoring equilibrium to the vestibular system.
What to Expect During Vestibular Rehabilitation
Our team of specially trained physical therapists will work with you to create a custom treatment plan that includes exercises to strengthen the components of the inner balance system, improve posture, and relieve symptoms. A home exercise program is sometimes recommended depending on the severity of disruption to the vestibular system.
The exercises and in-office procedures performed by our experienced physical therapists are specially designed to retrain the brain of the patient and teach it how to reprocess signals from the vestibular system. This helps the patient to become desensitized to the movements that commonly trigger the symptoms along with strengthening the muscles that support the vestibular system.
