What does vestibular rehabilitation consist of?

Vestibular rehab consists of a multitude of exercises including visual tracking, coordination of vestibular and ocular systems, balance training and strength and proprioception of the neck muscles. Treatment plans are individualized to a patient’s symptoms and rehab goals.

Different tests include assessing the patient’s ability to track with their eyes, assessing symptoms with different head movements and testing balance. The physical therapist will also screen the cervical spine for any musculoskeletal involvement, including neck movement and muscular tightness.
