Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular therapy is a type of physical therapy that focuses on treating vestibular disorders, which are conditions that affect the inner ear and balance center of the brain. These disorders can cause symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Vestibular therapy typically involves a combination of exercises and techniques designed to improve the function of the vestibular system and alleviate symptoms. These may include gaze stability exercises, balance training, and habituation exercises, among others. Vestibular therapy may also involve the use of assistive devices, such as a balance board or walking aids, to help the patient learn to manage their symptoms and improve their overall function.
