Physiotherapy in Toronto for Vestibular Rehabilitation
Welcome to In Balance Physiotherapy's guide on Vestibular Rehabilitation.
Luckily, most of us go about our daily lives without any regard for the complexity of our body’s systems that keep us upright and balanced. It is not only until one experiences a disruption of their balance that they are reminded how vitally important it is to simple, everyday tasks.
Vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) consists of a set of exercises that encourage the brain and spinal cord to make up for balance or equilibrium deficits, which are present due to inner ear or central nervous system disease or abnormality. VRT exercises are designed specifically for you by a physiotherapist at In Balance Physiotherapy who has specialized knowledge in this area. VRT is also referred to as balance retraining therapy.
This guide will help you understand:
- the anatomy of the vestibular system
- why VRT is needed
- which disorders VRT is commonly used for
- what In Balance Physiotherapy’s approach to VRT is
