Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular therapy uses specialized and individualized exercises to relieve the symptoms and discomfort associated with various dysfunctions and disorders of the inner ear and the region of the brain that controls balance and eye movements. This specialized form of therapy can empower you to conquer dizziness, improve balance, and regain control over your daily life.

Dysfunction can arise from trauma to the head (e.g. motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries), aging, stroke and brain injury, certain illnesses, and diseases. Conditions we treat include Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Concussions, Visuo-vestibular mismatch. Symptoms may include unsteadiness, dizziness, nausea, balance problems, headaches, and vertigo. Keep in mind, it’s important to communicate openly with your therapist about any changes in your symptoms or concerns you may have during the session.
