If you are suffering from dizziness, vertigo, nausea or loss of balance, then you might benefit from vestibular rehabilitation treatment.
The treatment consists of exercises designed to retrain the balance system and to re-programme your brain to tune out the dizzy sensations. The goal is to gradually reduce the severity of your symptoms, by becoming desensitised.
In order to move around without getting dizzy, our brain relies on the eyes, the joints and the balance organs in the ears. When the balance organ is not working properly, it causes dizziness or instability, which can be disabling and unpleasant.
Your physiotherapist will assess your symptoms and explain how the vestibular mechanism works. Once the assessment is complete, the therapist will develop a bespoke programme of vestibular and balance exercises to address your needs.
The exercises need to be done regularly throughout the day for the best outcomes.
