how vestibular rehabilitation works
Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate problems caused by vestibular disorders, such as vertigo and dizziness, gaze instability, and/or imbalance and falls. A customized exercise plan is developed from the findings of an evaluation and testing with one of our physical therapists, as well as input from you or your loved ones. Different factors can impact the potential for recovery including activity level, pain, other medical conditions, medications, and emotional concerns.
health benefits of vestibular rehabilitation
Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized form of physical therapy that focuses on improving balance, coordination, and alleviating symptoms associated with vestibular disorders, which affect the inner ear and balance control. This therapy can significantly benefit individuals experiencing vertigo, dizziness, or unsteadiness due to conditions. By incorporating specific exercises and maneuvers, vestibular rehabilitation helps retrain the brain and inner ear to work together effectively, reducing symptoms and enhancing overall stability. It’s a crucial intervention for regaining confidence in daily activities and improving the quality of life for those dealing with vestibular issues.
vestibular rehabilitation frequency
The frequency and treatment for vestibular rehabilitation depend on the severity of the vestibular disorder and the individual’s response to therapy. Generally, sessions may range from 1 to 3 times a week. Over time, the frequency may decrease as the patient experiences improvement in their symptoms. The full course of treatment can span several weeks to a few months. However, the exact schedule should be determined in evaluation with one of our several physical therapists, who will tailor the treatment plan based on the patient’s progress.
