Vestibular Rehabilitation

The vestibular system is part of the inner ear that works with the brain to control eye movements and balance. Disorders of the vestibular system can lead to dizziness, unsteadiness and balance problems. You may also experience other symptoms including:

  • A spinning sensation (frequently with changes in head position)
  • Poor balance
  • Nausea
  • Motion sensitivity (quicker movements provoke dizziness)
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to bright lights and noises
  • Decreased tolerance of crowds
  • Blurring of vision with head movements
  • Difficulty watching TV or movies

Vestibular disorders can affect people of all ages and can vary from mild symptoms to severe debilitating symptoms. Vestibular disorders are most commonly caused by:

  • Head trauma (motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries)
  • Inner ear infections
  • Illness or disease
  • Aging
  • Certain medications
  • Stroke and Brain Injury

MOTIONrehab® offers vestibular rehabilitation which is a personalised exercise-based treatment including:

  • Balance and postural control exercises
  • Specific vestibular or habituation exercises
  • Exercises to improve visual or gaze stability (adaptation exercises)
  • A supervised and/or home exercise program for self-management
  • Fall prevention advice and education
  • Re-conditioning activities to return to day to day activities.

For individuals with BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) a manual reposition manoeuver can also be effective in relieving symptoms. This would be identified during your assessment.
