Who Needs Vestibular Rehabilitation?
Persons entering a VRT program must have a confirmed diagnosis of vestibular pathology because not all dizziness is caused by vestibular deficits. Most referrals come from otolaryngologists or neurologists. If there is some question about the nature of the underlying disorder in individuals referred from other sources, the treating therapist may request an otology consult. VRT can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and unilateral or bilateral vestibular hypofunction (reduced inner-ear function on one or both sides) associated with diagnoses such as Ménière’s disease, labyrinthitis, and vestibular neuritis. Even individuals with long-term unresolved inner ear disorders who have undergone a period of medical management—with little or no success—may benefit. VRT can also help people with an acute or abrupt loss of vestibular function following surgery for vestibular problems.
You are not a candidate for vestibular rehabilitation if you have any of the following: Meniere’s disease or Non-vestibular dizziness or balance dysfunction.
Individuals who report any or all of the following symptoms as a result of a Vestibular disorder may benefit from vestibular rehabilitation:
Vertigo: Understanding the Causes and Solutions
Vertigo and dizziness can be attributed to various factors, with inner ear problems being the primary culprit. Clayton Heights Sports & Therapy Center specializes in diagnosing and treating vertigo-related conditions in Langley and surrounding areas. Our team of trained therapists can help identify the root causes of your symptoms and provide effective solutions.
Inner ear issues like BPPV can cause repeated positional vertigo. Our assessment and treatment often lead to complete recovery in one visit.
Dysfunction in the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR) can result in dizziness. Our therapists improve VOR function, reducing symptoms.
Neck stiffness disrupts signals between the neck and vestibular system, triggering vertigo. Manual therapy and IMS restore balance.
Impaired neck proprioception leads to a sensory mismatch in the vestibular system, causing dizziness. Exercise can gradually reduce persistent symptoms.

What Happens During My Visit?
A thorough assessment is performed based on your symptoms, which may include observing the following:
A treatment program is individualized for each client and may involve a repositioning technique or exercise.
The main types of exercises that physiotherapists can use are:
Habituation exercises: The physiotherapist makes you repeat movements that create dizziness. This form of “brain training” allows your brain to relearn how to interpret the signals it receives until it gets it right.
Static and dynamic balance exercises: Most people who have vestibular problems also experience balance problems.
Vestibular ocular exercises: These help you regain visual stabilization by combining head and eye movements in progressively more complicated positions and combinations.
