What is a vestibular rehabilitation therapist?

0

A vestibular rehabilitation therapist is a licensed physical or occupational therapist who has received post-graduate training in the evaluation and treatment of dizziness and balance disorders. At The Ears of Texas, our vestibular rehabilitation therapist has held a physical therapy license since 1991 and a vestibular certification since 1999. The vestibular rehabilitation therapist works in conjunction with the physician and with the audiologist to identify crucial elements of function that may be contributing to the symptoms of dizziness, vertigo and imbalance. She performs a comprehensive evaluation of strength, sensation, balance, walking ability, vision and overall tolerance to movement and positional changes. In combination with a thorough interview, these measurements will provide vital information with regard to strengths, weaknesses and limitations in a person’s overall balance system. Learn More…
