Vestibular Rehabilitation

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular rehabilitation is a form of physical therapy that focuses on the assessment and treatment of conditions related to the vestibular system.

It provides sensory information to your brain about head movement and spatial orientation. In short, it keeps you upright and moving forward!
