Vestibular rehabilitation Training

 
Following extended periods of non-compensated vertigo, you may find that you are suffering one or more of the following issues:

  • An inability to focus or feel “stable” when walking or moving within a busy shopping mall or outside environment.
  • Vertigo, or a sense of spinning with movements of the head during everyday activities (hanging out washing, bending down to pick something up off the floor)
  • Motion intolerance such as whilst travelling in a car.
  • A sense of blurred vision or trouble reading with head movement
  • Possible hearing loss or a feeling of fullness in one or both ears
  • Staggering or veering with walking

These symptoms can occur due to persistent imbalances within the inner ear’s vestibular system as well as disturbance of the small reflexes which allow our eyes to maintain focus as we move our bodies as well as provide stability for our body as we move our heads or are exposed to environmental movements.

Vestibular Rehabilitation Training (VRT) involves a prescribed program of progressive exercises which challenge your body’s balance control mechanisms (the vestibular system, the visual system and the somatosensory system) in order to regain control and input from whichever of these 3 systems have become under-regulated.
