Vertigo and vestibular therapy

Assessment and treatment of acute and chronic vestibular issues

A vestibular disorder can be caused by:

 

•    BPPV (Benign Paroxsymal Positional Vertigo)

•    Normal aging process

•    Nose, throat or ear infection or virus

•    Head injury

•    Mennieres Disease


 

Depending on the assessment findings, an appropriate rehabilitation program may include several of the following:
 
•    Repositioning manoeuvre for BPPV

•    Gaze Stability, Habituation and /or Postural stability exercises

•    Balance retraining exercises

•    Supervised therapy sessions to monitor progress and continually challenge the vestibular,   visual, and balance systems

•    Individualized vestibular exercises to perform at home
