Vestibular Rehabilitation Benefits

Vestibular Rehabilitation Benefits

Your specialist neurological physiotherapist at Manchester Neuro Physio will carry out a detailed assessment of your symptoms and problems. They may ask you to complete a series of head and eye co-ordination activities that will initially increase your symptoms in order to plan an appropriate treatment regime and home exercise program. Dependant on your symptoms, vestibular rehabilitation may include:

  • Home exercise routine
  • Neck and shoulder relaxation exercises
  • Gaze stabilisation exercises
  • Cawthorne Cooksey exercises
  • Dynamic balance exercises
  • Occulomotor tracking exercises
  • Integration of rehabilitative activity
  • Facilitation of return to normal daily routine
  • Epley or Semont manoeuvre and Brandt-Daroff Exercises (for treatment of BPPV only)
  • Use of gym equipment and gymnasium facilities

Vestibular rehabilitation may provoke the individual's symptoms initially but it is important to persist with treatment as over time, it significantly reduces or eliminates all symptoms. The benefits of vestibular rehabilitation include:

  • Reduction in symptoms of dizziness/nausea in the medium-term
  • Improves persistent or fluctuating symptoms
  • Improved postural control while walking
  • Improved balance reactions
  • Increased stamina ie. ability to read/walk for longer
  • Reduced dependence on vision for stability
  • Reduced risk of falls
  • Improved confidence
  • Reduced anxiety

Vestibular rehabilitation is a tried and tested treatment technique that can prove triumphant even when other treatment tools are unsuccessful.
