Vestibular Rehabilitation

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits. In physical therapy, these specialties are directed at the vestibular component of the nervous system. Our therapists have studied and trained to become vestibular experts in their field. The techniques used in proper vestibular rehab utilize your entire body to help keep your body balanced.

Our goal with vestibular therapy is to help you restore good pathways between brain, inner ear, and eyes to eliminate all primary and secondary problems that can arise form dizziness and vestibular conditions.
