Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is a clinically proven* exercise-based program that can successfully treat dizziness and vertigo, as well as other common symptoms of vestibular disorders such as balance problems, fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, nausea and visual sensitivity. VRT works by re-training the brain, a process that relies upon neuroplasticity (the remarkable ability of the brain to change its own structure and function based upon experience).

VRT can help patients with specific problems including: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), labyrinthitis, Ménière’s disease, vestibular neuritis and a number of other conditions including long-term inner ear disorders that have been previously resistant to other forms of treatment.

*The American Academy of Otolaryngology practice and advocacy guidelines position statement regarding Vestibular Rehabilitation is as follows: “Vestibular Rehabilitation is a scientifically based and clinically valid therapeutic modality for the treatment of persistent dizziness and postural instability due to incomplete compensation after peripheral vestibular or central nervous system injury. Vestibular rehabilitation is a valid form of therapy for dizziness and imbalance resulting from the medical or surgical treatment of vertigo disorders and for acute vertigo or persistent imbalance that may result from a variety of peripheral vestibular disorders.”
