How Does Vestibular Rehab Work?

In a vestibular rehab program, you’ll work with your physical therapist on a series of exercises designed to treat your specific symptoms. Your program is personalized to address your needs, though most vestibular rehab programs include specific exercises, such as habituation exercises, gaze stabilization exercises, and balance training. While these exercises may be challenging at first, symptoms tend to decrease if you remain steady and consistent with your exercise program.

Our Denver physical therapists and staff will work closely with you to design a program that works for you. Over a period of weeks (usually 6-8), most patients begin to see improvements in their balance, vision, and less dizziness.
