Understanding Balance Problems
More than two million people visit their doctor each year complaining of dizziness or vertigo. Their different symptoms represent balance problems, which usually are not serious. Vestibular Rehabilitation can help patients overcome their balance problems.
Q: What is vestibular rehabilitation?
A: A series of tests to determine a person's abilities with balance and eye movements, as well as the amount of motion provoked by dizziness. In treating balance disorders, determining the diagnosis is only part of the process. The most important issue is helping the person overcome their balance problem. Vestibular rehabilitation is an individualized program that allows the patients to overcome their balance difficulties based on their tests results, without the use of medications.
