Vestibular rehabilitation

Vestibular disorder individuals may experience varying levels of dizziness and postural instability. They may have an inner ear or vestibular system problem. Many people with inner ear damage may stop exercising or moving their head.

Following a thorough evaluation, physiotherapist trained in vestibular rehabilitation will design individualized exercise programs to address these complaints.

Studies have shown that customized and supervised exercised are more beneficial than unsupervised general fitness exercises for people with vestibular disorders.

Exercises for the treatment of dizziness and postural instability are based on the principles of adaptation, substitution, and habituation.

Recovery of gaze and postural stability after vestibular insult is supported by the ability of the remaining vestibular system to adapt its response to relevant stimuli.

In some cases, it is necessary to encourage the use of other systems or strategies to substitute for lost or decreased vestibular function.

Who experience position and movement induced dizziness, habituation exercises are indicated to decrease their response by provoking stimuli.

Additional exercise may also be prescribed to address other impairments that may be affecting a person’s stability, such as decreased lower extremity strength and flexibility.

Goal of physiotherapy treatment includes:

  • Improving complaints of visual disturbance with movement.
  • Improving static and dynamic balance.
  • Decreasing fall risk.
  • Reducing general complaints of dizziness.
  • Resolving positional vertigo.
  • Increasing participation in functional and ocial activities
