Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular Rehabilitation

 

WE CAN HELP

Vestibular Rehab is designed by physical therapy specialists and helps individuals recover from or adjust to conditions affecting portions of the body responsible for balance and visual stability—the brain and inner ear. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common vestibular disorder. BPPV is thought to be due to calcium carbonate crystal debris collecting in the semicircular canals. Treatment involves a series of head movements to relocate the debris out of the canals.
