Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular Therapy

Our Action Potential Rehabilitation Team includes several  therapists who have specific training in vestibular therapy. These therapists have taken advanced courses in vestibular rehabilitation and neuro-visual postural therapy.  Our extensive experience with clients with neurological conditions gives us a broader understanding of the integration of the visual, vestibular and postural systems.  

People with vestibular problems may experience symptoms such as: dizziness, vertigo, nausea, lightheadedness and visual changes. These vestibular system issues may be the result of head injury, concussion, BPPV, viral infections, benign tumours or other causes. 

Vestibular therapy incorporates an exercise based approach to help manage your symptoms.  Therapy can be provided at the clinic, or in the comfort of your home if transportation or movement is a concern.  Treatment is individualized based on the initial assessment conducted by your physiotherapist and may include: balance exercises, habituation exercises, gait training, visual exercises, repositioning techniques for BPPV, home exercises.
