Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a physical therapy exercise-based treatment program, designed to improve balance and reduce dizziness related problems. It encompasses specialized exercises to obtain results in gait and gaze stabilization. The primary cause of vestibular issues is disease or injury that damages the vestibule, thereby leading the individual to receive informational signals involving motion, equilibrium and balance.

Common signs and symptoms of vestibular issues are:

Dizziness
Vertigo
Imbalance
Nausea
Hearing changes
Difficulty in walking
Forward head
Poor Posture/ coordination

At MTI, a physical therapist will evaluate you and customize an individualized treatment plan that will include specific head, body and eye exercises designed for your level and then advance your exercises as you progress. The goal is to retrain your brain to process signals from the vestibule and coordinate them with the visual and proprioception stimuli.

Vestibular Rehabilitation is designed to do the following:

Improve balance
Minimize falls
Decrease sensations of dizziness
Improve stability during ambulation
Reduce over dependency on visual and somatosensory inputs
Reduce anxiety from vestibular disorientation
Improve neuromuscular coordination
