Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular treatment can consist of a combination of activities to affect the vestibular system. A PT evaluation will be performed to assess visual eye movements, positional tolerance, balance, and neck mobility.  If vertigo is present, there are manual techniques that are performed by the physical therapist to help reposition the otoconia in the inner ear. There also will be similar exercises to be performed at home by patient. If balance is affected, proprioception and balance activities will be performed in the clinic and at home. Often, there are supplemental eye movement exercises prescribed as part of physical therapy.

True BPPV is usually healed within 2 PT visits, while more complex vestibular disorders may require several weeks of therapy.
