VRT Rehab is a physical therapy exercise-based treatment program, designed to improve balance and reduce dizziness related problems. It encompasses specialized exercises to obtain results in gait and gaze stabilization. The primary cause of vestibular issues is disease or injury that damages the vestibule, thereby leading the individual to receive informational signals involving motion, equilibrium and balance.
Common signs and symptoms of vestibular issues are:
- Hearing changes
- Difficulty in walking
- Forward head
- Poor Posture/ coordination
At MTI, a physical therapist will evaluate you and customize an individualized treatment plan that will include specific head, body and eye exercises designed for your level and then advance your exercises as you progress. The goal is to retrain your brain to process signals from the vestibule and coordinate them with the visual and proprioception stimuli.
VRT is designed to do the following:
- Improve balance
- Minimize falls
- Decrease sensations of dizziness
- Improve stability during ambulation
- Reduce over dependency on visual and somatosensory inputs
- Reduce anxiety from vestibular disorientation
- Improve neuromuscular coordination
