Vestibular Rehabilitation

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular Rehabilitation (VR) is effective in reducing dizziness and vertigo and associated falls and improving quality of life in people with disorders involving balance mechanisms.

Good balance is essential for daily life, from getting out of bed to crossing the road. A healthy balance system uses information from the brain, inner ears, eyes, and joints, and enables people to see clearly when moving their head.

Balance disorders and dizziness are a growing public health concern across all age groups. Prevalence increases with age and these disorders are some of the most common complaints reports to GP’s by older patients. Untreated, they result in worsening unsteadiness, loss of confidence and anxiety, difficulty with concertation and memory, inactivity, loss of independence, an increased risk of falls and costly fall-related injuries.

What Causes Dizziness?

The most common form of dizziness and balance disorder is BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), a disorder of the inner ear resulting in episodes of intense dizziness on certain head movements.

Other causes include side effects from medication or alcohol, brain disorders such as stroke, concussion or cerebellar degeneration, cardiac problems and anxiety.

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

VR is an exercise-based program to encourage the central nervous system to compensate for problems in the inner ear. Following thorough examination, physiotherapists develop personalized exercise-based management plans, including home exercise programs.
