How do Physical Therapists Treat Vestibular Disorders?
After getting a referral from your physician for physical therapy, we can schedule a one on one appointment with one of our vestibular trained physical therapists. By completing a thorough history and examination, our therapists are able to distinguish between some of the more common vestibular diagnoses listed below. • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo • Vestibular Neuritis/Neuronitis • Labyrinthitis • Meniere’s Disease • Vestibular Migraines Vestibular therapy consists of exercises involving head and body movements which are designed to decrease dizziness, increase balance function and increase general activity levels. Other treatments that are frequently used are manual maneuvers and patient education (diet, activity modifications). Patient progress is monitored with outcome tools well established in evidence-based literature. Our patients have had excellent results with vestibular rehabilitation therapy.
