Vestibular Rehabilitation Services
More than 10 million patients visit their physicians every year due to dizziness. Dizziness can occur at any age and can last for seconds, minutes or hours. In some cases, dizziness may lead to loss of balance, falls and the inability to complete daily tasks.
Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized exercise-based program designed by a physical therapist that helps to improve balance, coordination and reduces issues related to dizziness. Vestibular rehabilitation may be an optimal course of treatment for those suffering from vertigo (BPPV), post-concussion syndrome, multiple sclerosis, whiplash injury, migraines, Meniere’s disease, stroke or brain injury.
Treating motion sensitivities, dizziness and brain injuries
At The GreenFields, vestibular services are offered in our state-of-the art outpatient rehabilitation and wellness center where we treat all types of diagnoses ranging from motion sensitivity to traumatic brain injuries.
Dizziness is not normal, but is highly treatable with an individualized care plan. Our therapists evaluate each patient to pinpoint the source of their symptoms and will conduct a thorough medical history review and customize a plan based on individual needs. We specialize in balance retraining and work one-on-one with patients to help them achieve their goals. The best clinical outcomes come from using a combination of function-focused treatment and patient-centered, compassionate care.
Often times, vestibular rehabilitation is the only treatment that may be needed to manage or alleviate symptoms. We recommend contacting your physician to request a prescription for physical therapy – those who integrate rehabilitation services early are shown to have better clinical outcomes than those who do not.
