St. Mary Rehabilitation is qualified to administer Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy. This type of therapy is exercise-based and is designed to treat inner ear deficits through compensation from the central nervous system. Patients who receive this treatment usually suffer from dizziness, vertigo, balance problems and physical coordination problems.
At the beginning of the treatment, the patient will be evaluated by our physical therapist on the following factors:
- – posture
- – balance
- – gait
- – compensatory strategies
- – hand-eye coordination
- – other related bodily functions concerning balance
After the evaluation, a care plan will be exclusively developed and will involved specific exercise programs that aim to improve the brain’s process response from signals in coordination with vision and positioning/perception in relation to neighboring body parts. It is designed to retrain the body to become a coordinated unit once more.
