What is Vestibular Dysfunction?
The vestibular system involves a complex interaction between the eyes, neck, legs, and feet that works to keep us oriented, upright and balanced. Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program designed to either maximize the body’s ability to compensate for dizziness and balance problems or to eliminate them altogether.
Common symptoms of vestibular dysfunction:
- Vertigo (i.e. room is spinning)
- Unsteadiness or falls
- Visual disturbances
- Hearing loss
- Pain and fullness in the ears
- Sensitivity to bustling environments
Vestibular issues can also result in nausea and/or vomiting, headaches, fatigue, poor concentration, inactivity, depression and anxiety.
