Balance (or Vestibular) Rehabilitation
You may need balance treatment if you feel dizzy or have trouble keeping your balance. Audiologists and other professionals can help.
Vestibular rehabilitation is balance treatment. You will learn exercises that can help you feel less dizzy and keep your balance. You may work on stretching and getting stronger. You may need to learn to focus your eyes so that you can keep your balance. Or, you may learn ways to turn your head or move without getting dizzy.
You may see an audiologist, physical therapist, or occupational therapist for balance treatment. An audiologist will test your hearing and look at how the parts of your ear work. This information can help you figure out why you are dizzy. The audiologist can help you understand how your ear works and what causes dizziness. Knowing more about this may help you feel better about treatment.
