If you suffer from dizziness, vertigo, or imbalance, you may have a vestibular disorder. Vestibular apparatus serves as a major contributor to the sense of movement and balance. Any problems with this complicated sensory system may give rise to episodes of diziness and falls.
Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program, designed by a specialized physical therapist, to improve balance and reduce dizziness-related problems. You might be a candidate for CRT (Canalith repositioning treatment) if the Physiotherpist finds that you have BPPV. Our therapists have experience and expertise to effectively treat your problem.
At your appointment, a physical therapist will evaluate your symptoms and review your medical history. He or she will identify any problems with your balance, your gait (how you walk), neck motion, visual stability, as well as examine other potential problem areas. Based on the findings, a plan of care is developed. The goal of your treatment plan is to improve any deficits that were identified. This, in turn, will improve your ability to function in activities of everyday living, reduce your risk for falling, and ultimately, improve your quality of life.
