Vestibular disorders often include vertigo, dizziness, visual disturbance, and imbalance. Many people also experience nausea and vomiting, reduced ability to focus and concentrate, as well as fatigue.
Vestibular Rehabilitation (VR) is a form of therapy designed to help reduce the symptoms from the disorder. For most people with a vestibular disorder, the deficit is permanent because the degree of restoration of vestibular function is very small. However, with rehabilitation, the brain can learn to use other senses to substitute for the deficient vestibular system.
At Halcyon Rehabilitation, our Vestibular Rehabilitation program is tailored to address each patients’ specific needs and problems. Along with the Dix-Hallpike Test, our team provides a comprehensive clinical examination to identify problems related to the Vestibular Disorder.
There are several methods of exercise that our team of therapists can prescribe based on the examination results.
The exercises often used at Halcyon Rehab include:
EPLEY’S MANEUVER: A series of head movements to help relieve symptoms of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
BRANDT-DAROFF: A series of movement also treated for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). The exercises are performed in three sets per day for two weeks.
Our trained team of therapists will work with patients’ to treat symptoms of dizziness, improve vision clarity and aim to improve steadiness of daily activities for self-care, work, and leisure activities.
