Many individuals experience episodes of vestibular disorders (balance disorders) at some point in their lives. This is usually caused by disturbances to various components of the ear. Persons with this disorder may experience dizziness, decreased balance, and decreased postural control.
In addition to hearing, ears work with our eyes to provide balance. Signals are sent to the brain via the eyes and ears indicating what position a person is in. Damage to the eyes and/or ear may send incorrect signals to the brain, resulting in imbalance or decreased postural control.
The Vestibular Rehabilitation Program is for individuals who have a medical diagnosis of vestibular disorders. This program is designed to decrease dizziness and restore balance, strength, and postural control, along with promoting an independent lifestyle.
