Vestibular rehabilitation can help with symptoms of:
- dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, spinning or tilting
- balance or visual disruption with head motion
Typical diagnoses for vestibular rehabilitation include:
Many individuals experience episodes of vestibular disorders at some point in their lives. If the vestibular system is damaged, it disrupts the normal relationship of head and eye movements as well as the perception of center and postural adjustments needed to maintain your balance.
- vestibular neuritis
- benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
- Meniere's disease
- bilateral vestibular dysfunction
- central vestibular dysfunction
Persons with this disorder may experience dizziness, spinning, decreased balance, jumpy vision, nausea and decreased postural control. This can result in secondary symptoms including decreased energy levels, frustration and anxiety. Most individuals recover from a vestibular disorder quickly because the vestibular system is very adaptable.
