Vestibular Therapy


Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular therapy is used to treat symptoms associated with vestibular disorders such as dizziness, vertigo and imbalance.

The vestibular system consists of sensory organs called otoliths and semicircular canals.  These organs provide input to the vestibular system to allow detection of gravity, head and neck movements and positoin changes.


When there is a disruption or injury to the system this can lead to a variety of symptoms.  These can include:

  • Dizziness

  • BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)

  • Meniere's disease

  • Post-Concussion symptoms

  • Motion sensitivity

  • Difficulty with balance/frequent falls

  • Vestibular hypofunction due to neuritis

A therapist trained in vestibular therapy can assess and treat these conditions in hopes of abating the symptoms.



A vestibular therapist will conduct a thorough assessment including a detailed history, gait and balance assessment, screening of the visual and vestibular system using specialized goggles, as well as other tests to determine the cause of symptoms. 

The therapist will then use this date to diagnose and treat the condition and tailor a plan to fit your vestibular needs.
