Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy in Lafayette, LA

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy, (VRT), 
is an exercise based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits.

Equilibrium consists of vestibular (internal) visual and somatosensory (external) input.
The central nervous system integrates sensory input and produces a motor control response.
Thus having symptoms of dizziness, vertigo and balance problems.

BPPV is one diagnosis that can be treated with repositioning technique and is resolved fairly quickly. Vestibularpathy and balance issues are treated through adaptation, substitution, visual motor and balance retraining techniques.
