One of our certified health practitioners will evaluate your symptoms and review medical history. You can expect all or some of the following:
- Balance and/or leg strength/flexibility
- Gait (how you walk)
- Visual stability and mobility
- Neck mobility and neck and arm strength
- Positional testing, including an inner ear exam
A treatment plan will be put together to address all identified issues. The goal is to make you feel more confident in everyday life and reduce the risk of a fall.
In most cases, vestibular rehabilitation therapy will be all that is needed to address the issues at hand. However sometimes it is a part of the presurgery/postsurgery treatment plan, and other treatment may be required.
Continuing to perform the exercises will ensure that the balance and dizziness problems decrease significantly or completely disappear.
