Vestibular and Balance Clinic

Treatment for Dizziness and Balance Problems

Dizziness and balance problems can have a dramatic effect on a person’s quality of life. In most cases, we work with people who have dizziness or balance problems caused by a vestibular impairment, head injury or stroke. We can also help elderly people who have balance troubles caused by multiple problems.

Treatment may include eye-head exercises, habituation exercises, and progressive balance training; strength, core, and flexibility exercises; compensatory techniques, gait training, and Canalith Repositioning Procedure (sometimes referred to as Epley’s Maneuver) to treat common diagnosis of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

VestibularVestibular rehabilitation includes specific exercises that aim to improve:

  • Balance and reduce fall risk
  • Gaze stability
  • Motion sensitivity
  • Visual vertigo

Each person’s exercise program is designed specifically for him or her by our expert staff. Treatment is provided with a physician referral.
