Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a therapeutic approach to control dizziness and disequilibrium associated with vestibular pathology. While medications have been designed to suppress vestibular functions, rehabilitation through exercise serves as an alternate form of treatment designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits.

Goals include:

Decrease Dizziness

Increase Balance Function

Increase General Activity Levels

Individualized Treatment Plan

Before a specific exercise program is initiated, therapists at Cardinal Hill evaluate the individual's musculoskeletal system, balance, gait and vertigo.

Exercise programs are developed to target daily activities affected by vestibular disorders. Rehabilitation is centered on activities that encourage the brain to habituate the vertigo/dizziness response, improve coordination and muscle responses and exercises to promote VestibuloOcular Reflex (VOR) compensation, which fosters clear vision and balance while moving.
