Manage Vertigo
Implementing vertigo-based exercises, such as the Epley Maneuver or Brandt-Daroff, can reduce the symptoms of vertigo and help you get back to living your life.
Improve Balance
Balance exercises will challenge the body’s vestibular system, improving your body’s ability to maintain posture and centre of gravity while enhancing reaction time and movement.
Overcome Dizziness
Habituation exercises can reduce dizziness through repeated exposure to specific movements or visual stimuli, while gaze stabilization techniques improve eye movement control during head movements.
Enhance Wellness
Improving your strength, flexibility, heart and brain health can increase your overall physical health and well-being. It can also help prevent symptoms of vertigo, balance and dizziness issues.

What to Expect
Habituation
Habituation exercises can effectively treat dizziness. The exercises repeatedly expose you to specific visual stimulations and head movements that provoke dizziness, building your tolerance. Over time, symptoms will decrease as the vestibular system adjusts.
Gaze Stabilization
These exercises can help improve eye movements so that your vision is clear during head movements. Fixating on objects while moving your head and rapidly shifting your gaze are common exercises during this treatment.
Balance Training
Balance exercises can improve steadiness, reducing symptoms and falls. Some features include learning visual and somatosensory cues, dynamic movements and dual tasks. Overall, this training can enhance standing, bending, reaching, turning, walking and other intense activities.
FAQs

The vestibular system is a sensory system located on each side of the skull in the inner ear. This system provides our brains with information about motion, head position, and spatial awareness and orientation. It also helps keep us balanced and stabilizes our head and body during movement. When the system is disturbed or disrupted, you can experience vertigo, dizziness and balance problems.

Although they have very similar symptoms, there are some specific differences between the two. Dizziness is used to describe sensations such as lightheadedness, disorientation and unsteadiness. On the other hand, vertigo occurs when the surrounding environment is spinning, but not the person. For the latter, concussions and inner ear damage are the main causes.

While vestibular therapy is the best course of action, other methods can help with these conditions. These can include lifestyle changes, prevention methods, and, if needed, medications. Other treatments, such as acupuncture and psychotherapy, can prove helpful. We’ll tailor your treatment plan so you get the best results.
