VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION

"Evidence has shown that vestibular rehabilitation can be effective in improving symptoms related to many vestibular disorders.

Symptoms due to vestibular disorders can diminish quality of life and impact all aspects of daily living. They also contribute to emotional problems such as anxiety and depression".

~ Vestibular Disorders Association

Vestibular Rehabilitation is a form of therapy used to assess and treat individuals experiencing vertigo, dizziness, gaze instability, falls and visual field deficits and balance impairments.
