Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy

Get rid of dizziness- An individualized intervention plan

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT)?

VRT is offered by our specialist. It is an exercise-based program to alleviate symptoms of vestibular disorders that are caused by problems in the inner ear. This may present as dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, visual disturbances, falls, brain fog and more.
 
An exercise program is developed after careful consideration of clinical assessment, lab tests, imaging results and patient input.
 
At Revere, we provide ongoing patient education to alleviate anxiety about symptoms and prognosis.

Physio FAQ

It varies depending on severity of symptoms and consistency in following exercise therapy recommendations. Most patients experience some changes in just 4-6 weeks. Compliance and consistent exercises are key to complete recovery. Remember to follow your program and check in with your physiotherapist to provide and receive feedback on the same.

All exercises must be completed at least once a day for 6 weeks or until recovery, whichever comes first.

There is overwhelming evidence to affirm the effectiveness of a VRT program, provided the patient is consistent with the exercise regime.

The exercises might exacerbate symptoms; however, this is temporary. It is normal to feel slightly worse before you begin to get better. With consistent exercises the dizziness and nausea will decrease over time. Always provide feedback to your therapist to modify the program as indicated.
