The vestibular system includes parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. If the system is damaged by disease, aging or injury, a vestibular disorder can result.
If so, you may be suffering from a vestibular disorder and may benefit from a vestibular examination.
Vestibular rehabilitation can help to decrease dizziness, improve balance, decrease fall risk, and restore independence with daily activities. Therapy includes exercise-based programming, neuromuscular reeducation, and/or mechanical repositioning of misplaced crystals as a result of BPPV.
Thompson Health’s Rehabilitation Services Department’s Canandaigua location offers enhanced services for individuals suffering from vestibular disorders.
