Vestibular Rehabilitation (Vertigo)

Vertigo often occurs due to a disruption in the vestibular system of the inner ear. This is one of three systems used by your body to help you balance and understand where your body is in space. The other two systems include what your joints “feel” (proprioception) and what your eyes see (vision). When conflicting information comes back to the brain from these different systems due to a dysfunction in the vestibular system the result is marked dizziness with movements of the head, changing positions of the body, and even in the absence of movement. This dysfunction of the vestibular symptoms can be resolved by moving the tiny crystals in the inner ear via passive and active movements of your head as well as retraining (habituation) for these crystals and associated nerves to better understand where your body is in space.
