Vestibular Rehabilitation
Vestibular rehabilitation is a medically-based, exercise program aimed at reducing or eliminating the symptoms of positional vertigo and balance problems related to the vestibular system and correct the central nervous system compensations and changes that cause the client to perceive a faulty message. Vestibular therapy can improve the client’s ability to move around safely.

Dizziness and balance problems affect one in three people of all ages and are the number-one reason for doctor visits among people 75 and older. They are also the number-one cause of falling deaths for people over age 85.

Anxiety, concentration problems, dizziness, fatigue, hearing loss, loss of balance, nausea, lightheadedness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and vertigo (BPPV) are just some of the symptoms experienced by people with balance or vestibular problems.
