Vestibular rehabilitation is a form of therapy for people with vestibular system dysfunction. It can lead to dizziness, vertigo, balance problems, visual difficulties, hearing problems and reduced mobility.

The types of conditions treated include:

  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Labyrinthitis
  • Head injuries
  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

Specialist assessment and treatment of these disorders is carried out by a physiotherapist. An initial assessment will take between an hour and an hour and half and will normally involve trying to aggravate any feelings of dizziness and/or vertigo.

This is done through head and body movements. It can be necessary to rest for a while after assessment to allow any symptoms to settle.

Treatment

Treatment will involve:

  • Visual exercises
  • Canalith repositioning techniques
  • Balance re-training
  • Lifestyle changes. ​

Some treatments have an immediate effect whereas others may take several weeks to become established.
