We will interpret all of the data from the tests we have deemed most necessary, in order to conclude whether you have a problem that is based in the auditory system. These results will be shared with you, as well as your referring medical doctor (or if one is needed, we will refer you). Depending on our diagnosis, your medical doctor may require imaging or blood tests, if our results indicate that these could help your progress.
VRT is a form of therapy that is used to treat balance problems and dizziness. It is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, which means that the nervous system can learn new skills or adapt its function over time.
Vestibular rehabilitation typically involves a combination of exercises and lifestyle modifications to help individuals regain control and improve their balance. Lifestyle modifications may include changes to diet, sleeping habits, fluid intake, posture, or activity level, among others.
In addition to these physical components, vestibular rehabilitation may involve counseling with our experienced counseling audiologist, to help lessen the stress and anxiety that can be associated with dizziness and its impact on your everyday life. These techniques can be used to build confidence in safely performing activities of daily living, as well as increasing your overall quality of life.
