Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) for vertigo can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), and the unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypo function (reduced inner ear function on one or both sides) associated with Meniere’s disease, labyrinthitis and vestibular neuritis. VR can also help people with an acute loss of vestibular function following certain surgeries, for example removal of acoustic neuroma or schwannoma. People suffering from a vestibular disorder may feel/experience any or all of the following:
- Light headedness
- Increased risk of falling
- Motion sensitivity e.g car sickness, or related to head position such as feeling dizzy when you tip you head forward
- Difficulty reading signs especially when moving or driving
