Vestibular Rehab Schomberg & Caledon, ON

Vestibular Rehab

Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized physiotherapy treatment program that is individualized for each client. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based approach to relieve the symptoms and discomfort of vestibular disorders. These symptoms can include: Dizziness, Vertigo, Balance problems, Motion sensitivity (where quick movements of the head provoke dizziness), and problems with gaze stability (where there is blurring of vision with head movements).

A thorough assessment is performed focused on functioning in 3 areas:

  • Eye and head coordination
  • Balance and gait
  • Motion sensitivity

 

Following the initial assessment, treatment may include:

  • Balance retraining exercises
  • Specific vestibular exercises (adaptation and habituation exercises)
  • Supervised therapy session to monitor progress and continually challenge the vestibular, visual and balance systems
  • Repositioning maneuvers for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

Please note that although no referral is required, it is recommended that you are assessed by your physician prior to commencing a vestibular rehabilitation program.
