What is Vestibular Therapy?

At Phoenix Physical Therapy & Wellness we provide vestibular therapy for our patients suffering from balance disorders. Balance disorders refer to a broad range of conditions, but they are all connected by the effect they have on the vestibular system, also known as the inner ear.

Some common balance disorders that we treat through vestibular therapy include:

• Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
• Meniere’s disease
• Vestibular neuritis
• Migraines
• Stroke

Vestibular therapy, also referred to as vestibular rehabilitation, is conducted through a process of “adaptation and compensation.” This means that the vestibular system is actually being “reprogrammed” through both passive and active therapies to form connections with the brain on adjusting imbalances and regaining stability.
