Vestibular Rehab for Vertigo

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a form of vertigo that is treated by physical therapy. BPPV is characterized by intense dizziness that occurs when the patient moves the head into specific positions. It is common for the symptoms to be present when the patient looks up, is lying down or rolling in bed. The cause of this vertigo is a problem with the balance system in the inner ear (labyrinth). Although BPPV is rarely a serious problem, it can increase the risk of falling and stumbling.

Vestibular Rehab re-trains the inner ear to improve balance. At Capstone Physical Therapy we are trained in specific treatments to resolve the symptoms of vertigo associated with BPPV.
