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.

Here’s a useful video on VRT:

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.
