Vestibular Rehabilitation

Restore balance to your life. 

Our Vestibular Rehabilitation Program treats patients with vestibular or balance disorders, such as: 

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo 
  • Unilateral or bilateral peripheral vestibular hypo- or hyper-function  
  • Central vestibular disorders following stroke or brain injury and others. 

We will develop your individualized vestibular rehabilitation and treatment plan with the goal of improving your balance, your functional independence and your safety. 

Treatment begins with a comprehensive evaluation with a physical therapist. This specialist may conduct tests and use other assessment tools to determine the care that’s most appropriate for you.  

You may participate in tests to measure: 

  • Your coordination and strength 
  • Your joint range and positional sensitivity 
  • Your ability to maintain balance on different surfaces, and much more.  

A functional assessment also allows us to determine your level of independence and safety at home and work, as well as in the community. 

Therapy includes a customized exercise program that may focus on aerobic activities, balance, visual vestibular exercises and habituation. The combination of activities will depend on what’s most appropriate for you. As your condition improves, your exercise program will become more challenging. 

Education and family participation are both important elements of your therapy. We ensure you and your caregivers and family understand any potential safety concerns and other factors that impact your rehabilitation and well-being.
