Vestibular Rehabilitation

VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION PROGRAM

The role of the vestibular system is to sense self motion, orientate us to vertical, stabilise the head and control our centre of mass. People with vestibular dysfunction can present with dizziness, visual and balance disturbances, reduced mobility and anxiety. This can lead to reduced independence , decreased confidence to participate in social activities and social isolation.


Program structure

- This program addresses both the immediate causes of dizziness and reduces the longer term consequences of living with dizziness such as decreased activity participation, deconditioning and falls.

- It involves tailored specific exercise therapy targeting head and eye movements, balance and repeated exposure to provocative movements to desensitise the individual.

- This program includes education and a review of the impacts of dizziness on quality of life and improves functional recovery.
