Do You Get Dizzy? Vestibular Rehabilitation Can Help!

Jennifer Ballweg, Physical Therapist - Speaker Bio
Jennifer is a physical therapist at Stoughton Hospital and has received special training in vestibular rehabilitation.
  • Topic Info:When the vestibular organs are damaged with disease or injury, the brain can no longer rely on them for accurate information about equilibrium and motion, often resulting in dizziness, vertigo, balance problems, and other symptoms.

    Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based program designed to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits.

    Most VRT exercises involve head movement, and head movements are essential in stimulating and retraining the vestibular system.

    Jennifer Ballweg is here to talk about how vestibular rehabilitation can help with vertigo.
