Specialized treatment for dizziness and vertigo.
What is Vestibular Physiotherapy?
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of vestibular therapy used by physiotherapists to alleviate signs, symptoms, and other problems caused by vestibular disorders, such as dizziness and vertigo.
VRT targets various elements within the inner ear that create the vestibular system. The vestibular system is one of the leading contributors that is responsible for controlling our balance, eye movements, and spatial orientation. If a disease or injury damages the vestibular system, a vestibular disorder can arise.
Individuals with vestibular disorders often report dizziness, vertigo (sensation of the room spinning), unsteadiness, and/or difficulty with their balance. These symptoms can drastically diminish quality of life and impact many aspects of daily living.
