Vestibular rehabilitation is the treatment of imbalance, such as dizziness or vertigo, that can be caused by a concussion or disorder, helping you to return to a normal life.
Inner ear or central balance pathway disorders such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) are common reasons people seek vestibular rehabilitation. Signs and symptoms of BPPV include:
Nystagmus—eyes that are "clicking" back and forth at a quick rate.
Loss of balance—feeling as if you are on a boat or swaying.
Dizziness when you change positions, such as rolling over in bed, tipping your head back, turning your head.
We can help treat BPPV using the Epley Manuever to re-position the "crystals" out of the semi-circular canal and back into the correct position in the utricle aspect of the ear.
