Rehabilitation


Balance and Vestibular

Physical Therapy provides the gold standard for non-medical, non-surgical management of dizziness, as the practice has evolved significantly since the 1980s with development of more effective and efficient treatment protocols. 


It is an effective and financially efficient solution to restore function.

Vestibular rehabilitation is targeted to resolve conflict between internal (vestibular) and external (vision and somatosensory) references about how the head is oriented in space. Or, in the case of BPPV, the repositioning of displaced otoconia.

Many vestibular conditions begin with an active inflammation, virus, bacterial infection, or requires surgical management. Vestibular rehabilitation is most successful once the initial condition has been stabilized.

Lindsey Ketterling, DPT, CSCS at CPR now has her Vestibular Rehabilitation certification (AIB-VRC) and is accepting new patients.  Don’t let dizziness take over your life!
