What Does a Vestibular Physiotherapist Do?
A vestibular physiotherapist is a specialized medical professional who works with individuals to diagnose and treat balance disorders and vestibular conditions. Through the use of specialized assessments, exercises, activities, and manual therapy techniques, these professionals help patients improve their balance, mobility, and overall quality of life.
They are also trained to provide advice about lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of falls or other accidents. Vestibular physiotherapists can also provide information about how to manage certain medical conditions that can cause loss of balance issues.
How Effective Is Vestibular Physical Therapy?
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a highly effective and non-invasive treatment option for many vestibular disorders. Research has shown that vestibular physical therapy can reduce dizziness, improve balance, and help people regain their normal function and quality of life. It may also be used to reduce the risk of falls in older adults.
