Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of therapy intended to alleviate problems caused by a wide variety of balance disorders.
VRT is effective in improving functional deficits and symptoms resulting from peripheral vestibular hypofunction as well as central balance disorders.
Our physical therapy doctors are certified in Vestibular Rehabilitation and will customize a treatment plan to alleviate both the primary and secondary problems due to vestibular disorders such as vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and/or imbalance, decreased muscle strength, and fatigue.
What is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is characterized by episodic vertigo provoked by changes in head position in relationship to gravity. It is the most common vestibular disorder, accounting for one-third of vestibular diagnoses.
BPPV may occur following head trauma, labyrinthitis, or ischemia in the anterior vestibular artery distribution, but almost half of the cases are idiopathic.
Physical Therapy for Patients with BPPV
Physical Therapy Doctors are certified in vestibular rehabilitation and competent in diagnosing BPPV, selecting the appropriate maneuver for each patient, and performing the intervention.
Secondary problems related to BPPV, such as persistent dizziness or postural instability, can be treated by our vestibular physical therapists as part of our comprehensive care plan.
