Balance (Vestibular) Rehabilitation
The aim of a Vestibular Rehabilitation exercise programme is to retrain the brain for all types of head and body movement. This is done by identifying the movements which provoke your dizziness and designing a programme of exercises which reproduce these movements.
A personalised programme of Vestibular Rehabilitation exercises will encourage you to make movements which cause dizziness in a safe and controlled way. This will help you to overcome the dizziness and eventually enable you to move about as freely as you did before the dizziness started.
Your audiologist may provide you with a sheet of personalised rehabilitation exercises for you to do at home. A follow up appointment will then be arranged to monitor your progress. Depending on what stage you are at when you start the programme, several follow up appointments may be required. Your audiologist will advise you as you progress through the programme.
