Vestibular Rehab

We are pleased to offer vestibular rehabilitation treatments to patients who may benefit from skilled physical therapy intervention.

Conditions that may benefit from vestibular physical therapy treatment include:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Bilateral and unilateral vestibular hypofunction
  • Cervicogenic dizziness
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Labyrinthitis
  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Visually provoked dizziness

Therapeutic treatments provided may include:

Habituation

Reduces dizziness through repeated exposure to dizzying movements and stimuli that allows the brain to compensate for abnormal signaling from the inner ear.

Gaze stabilization

Enhances control of eye movements to improve vision dysfunction that occurs with head and eye movement. Very helpful with patients who have poor vestibular functioning.

Balance Training

Improves steadiness when performing daily activities of living to reduce fall risk and environmental barriers. Includes static and dynamic activities

Canalith Repositioning Procedures

Repositions canaliths in the ear to cure BPPV. It has a cure rate of 80% when performed correctly, and can treat both canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis.

At Beyond Therapy and Wellness, we are committed to providing physical therapy services in a comfortable environment where patients can focus on recovery under the direct supervision of a licensed physical therapist. You will receive a one-on-one evaluation in a private room where you will be evaluated by a physical therapist that is professionally trained in treating your specific diagnosis. After your evaluation, you will receive an explanation on your course of treatment and answer any questions you might have.

To schedule an evaluation with one of our licensed doctors of physical therapy, give us a call.
