Vestibular Therapy

The second most commonly reported complaint within doctors offices is dizziness and loss of balance. In fact, 76 million Americans will experience some sort of dizzy spell or vertigo at some point in their lives. These are both extremely common conditions that affect one’s equilibrium, making them feel as if they are off balance. Symptoms can vary from acute to chronic and in some severe cases, they can even be indicators of serious health risks.  Feelings of dizziness or vertigo can greatly limit one’s daily life, making it difficult for them to perform even the simplest tasks without feeling as if they might fall over. Fortunately, at Rehab Dynamics, we offer some of the most effective vestibular therapy services in Covington & Mandeville, LA, aimed at retraining your vestibular system to regulate feelings of stability and balance.  

What is vestibular therapy?

At Rehab Dynamics, we provide vestibular therapy for our patients suffering from balance disorders in Covington & Mandeville, LA. Balance disorders can refer to a broad range of conditions, but they are all connected by the effect they have on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear.

Some common balance disorders that we treat through vestibular therapy include:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
  • Meniere’s disease
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Migraines
  • Stroke

Vestibular therapy, also referred to as vestibular rehabilitation, is conducted through a process of “adaptation and compensation.” This means that the vestibular system is actually being “reprogrammed” through both passive and active therapies to form connections with the brain on adjusting imbalances and regaining stability. 

At Rehab Dynamics, we also provide “Balance & Dizziness Programs” for patients. These programs focus on strength, endurance, motion, gait training, and coordination, in order to prevent falls and promote safe movement.

Some common methods that accompany vestibular therapy may include:

  • Cawthorne head exercises
  • Epley maneuver
  • Dix-Hallpike test
  • Balance training
  • Home programs
  • Patient education
