VESTIBULAR

REHABILITATION PROGRAM

VITAL

The vestibular system is a sensory system responsible for proper navigation through our environment by providing information regarding motion, head position and spatial orientation. It also plays a pivotal role in balance, posture and has an intimate relation to our autonomic nervous system making it a key piece of anatomy for motion sickness, migraines and lightheadedness.

The OPC Vestibular Rehabilitation Program has been designed to effectively examine and rehabilitate vestibular disorders. Our ability to properly examine and diagnose such conditions is what allows our rehabilitation strategies to be so effective.

 

Common symptoms of vestibular dysfunction are vertigo, dizziness, loss of balance or motion sickness, in addition to these symptoms other commonly seen symptoms associated with the vestibular system are nausea, anxiety, lightheadedness or migraines.

A potential rehabilitation strategy may be performing a mild balance task while performing coordinated head and eye movements
