Vestibular Therapy for Balance and Dizziness

How Vestibular Therapy Can Help with Dizziness and Balance

The goals of vestibular therapy may differ depending on the underlying conditions causing your dizziness. Vestibular rehabilitation may help you:

  • Reduce dizziness and related symptoms
  • Regain function
  • Reposition inner ear crystals in cases of BPPV
  • Develop ways to compensate for these problems through other senses such as vision

 Vestibular rehabilitation uses exercise to address dizziness and balance impairments. Balance is a skill that coordinates multiple systems in the body, and exercise helps these systems work together in a coordinated fashion. Treatments include education as well as in-clinic and home exercises, such as:

  • Repositioning maneuvers for BPPV (Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)
  • Habituation exercises that trigger dizziness to help your body to adjust and, over time, decrease the dizziness you experience
  • Gaze stability training
  • Balance retraining
  • Exercise programs that address issues with weakness, decreased range of motion, etc.
