Vestibular Rehab

Atlas Physical Therapy offers programs to treat vestibular and non-vestibular balance and dizziness disorders. Our vestibular programs are designed based upon the patient’s vestibular dysfunction. Treatments often include compensatory techniques for postural and gaze stability and may also include repositioning techniques for vertigo. Strategies will be provided to manage symptoms of vertigo, dizziness and imbalance to improve quality of life. Our programs are individualized and may include exercises for gait, static and dynamic balance, strengthening, and eye-head coordination. Our treatments are designed to maximize remaining vestibular function and retrain balance reactions to prevent falls. In addition, home exercise programs are often provided to promote long term self-management and prevention of vestibular and imbalance symptoms.
