Vestibular Treatment

Boehm's Physiotherapy

Vestibular Treatment

In everyday life, we need balance to be able to move from one position to another as we work through our daily routines. Our inner ear has a system that provides balance and equilibrium to everyday movements. Problems can often arise with a traumatic event or with no trauma at all. When present, this condition can be quite strong and affect almost all daily activities. We can help!

We are trained to identify which part of the inner ear canals is causing the misfire. We use a series of techniques that involve repositioning the canals, which have hair-like receptors in a thick fluid, with a laying down or sitting up technique to restore proper function of your balance system. Your treatment plan would include a series of treatments that would re-test the ability of your inner ear system to withstand movement and no longer create dizziness. This could be stretched over a one to two-week period, depending on how quick you respond. In essence, we reset the system with these techniques so it can function without feelings of dizziness or “disequilibrium.” Dizziness can be caused by many things, including vestibular dysfunction, however it is advisable to visit with your family physician to verify that there are no other non-vestibular causes. Our understanding of normal movements of this leads to accurate and sometimes sudden resolution. Dysfunction in this vestibular system can lead to bouts of dizziness with or without movement.

Physiotherapists are able to assess and treat the dysfunction in the inner ear that leads to normal balance and function that we take for granted until it fails us. The majority of vestibular problems can be easily treated and restore your sense of balance within a short period of time. At Boehm’s Physiotherapy, you can be treated for Vestibular Treatment and Rehabilitation.
