50% of adults will experience symptoms of dizziness their lifetime. Dizziness and balance problems represent 10% of all physician visits, and is the #1 reason for physician visits for patients >65 years.
Vestibular Rehabilitation is the assessment and treatment of vestibular disorders following a diagnosis of complaints of dizziness and ‘true’ vertigo. BPPV (benign positional paroxysmal vertigo) is the most common cause of vertigo, accounting for up to 30% of vertigo patients.
Therapists on staff are trained to screen patients with complaints of dizziness or vertigo in order to determine which clients will respond to therapy (such as habituation exercise or canal repositioning manoeuvres); or will require further medical investigation.
Extended visits are required to fully assess and treat a client with vestibular disorders.
