Vestibular Rehabilitation is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear dysfunction (which is responsible for position and the sense of motion of our body and head) which includes conditions like benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), central vestibular dysfunctions, post concussions, migraine related dizziness and vestibular hypofunction. When the vestibular organs are not functional due to disease or injury, the brain will get mixed sensory information and as a result will often lead to dizziness, vertigo, balance problems and other symptoms.
Following an assessment, your physiotherapist will develop an individualized treatment plan that includes specific head, body and eye exercises to be performed both in clinical and home settings. These exercises are designed to retrain the brain to recognize and process signals from the vestibular system and coordinate them with information from vision and proprioception.
