Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT)

Your health practitioner may refer you for VRT with the hope of reducing your symptoms and improving your quality of life.

Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) is a Physical Therapy for helping the brain compensate for vestibular dysfunction.

It usually involves repetitive movement of body, head, neck and eyes for short but repeated bursts. A program of exercises is often prescribed for daily practice, often twice a day.

A specialist Physio Therapist will see you periodically to assess your needs, progress and prescribe exercises accordingly.

Not everyone finds VRT helpful and it can precipitate migraines. Some find regular normal light exercise like long walks are as good as a course of VRT.
