- Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VTR) is a form of therapy specialized to reduce problems caused by vestibular disorders. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program that is designed to reduce or ease vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, and falls. Customized exercises are designed according to person’s specific problems. In order to create a customized exercise program the person will go under a comprehensive clinical examination. There are three different principle methods of exercise used in vestibular therapy;
- Habituation, - Gaze Stability, - Balance Training.
- Habituation exercises are mostly used for people experiencing dizziness through repeated exposure to specific movements or visual stimuli. Gaze stability exercises are designed for people who experience vision problems. These exercises improve the control of the eye movements so the vision is not affected with head movements. Balance training exercises are recommended to improve steadiness to help with daily activities.
