Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular Therapy

Our specialized therapists provide treatment known as Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) for conditions such as vertigo to eliminate symptoms of dizziness, headaches, lightheadedness, vertigo, nausea, and balance impairments. Our Physical Therapists are skilled in many techniques to decrease symptoms. Some of these techniques include adaptation or habituation, canalith repositioning procedures (CRP), exercises that improve balance and/or gait, and gaze stabilization.
