Réadaptation vestibulaire

Vestibular Rehabilitation

A large part of our ability to stand in balance comes from the inner ear. When people suffer from dizziness and/or a loss of equilibrium, the main causes are often found in the inner ear.

The causes

Among the causes found in the inner ear, one of the most frequesnt is what we call benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). This condition affects 20 to 30 percent of people suffering from dizziness and/or loss of equilibrium, showing that the problem is related to the inner ear.
In physiotherapy, it is possible to completely eliminate the symptoms of BPPV. The approach consists of a series of simple tests, treatments and exercises to do at home.
Your physiotherapist will first assess your condition to determine if you suffer from BPPV or not. If the tests are positive, a first treatment will be administered. In general, clients feel improvement after just one treatment. In 98% of cases, the symptoms disappear completely after three treatments.
