Vestibular training

June 23, 2023

Vestibular training is a type of physical therapy that focuses on strengthening the vestibular system in the brain. The vestibular system is responsible for balance and orientation in space, and it plays a crucial role in many of the body’s movements.

People who have experienced a concussion may develop vestibular disorders, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness, imbalance, and difficulty concentrating. By performing vestibular training, these symptoms can be improved and balance and orientation in space can be restored.

Vestibular training involves performing specific exercises and activities that stimulate the vestibular system. These exercises may include walking on a moving platform or watching movements that create illusions of motion. By performing these exercises, the vestibular system can be strengthened and its functions can be restored.

It is important that the training is performed under the supervision of a professional physical therapist who has experience with vestibular training. This ensures that the exercises are performed correctly and that unnecessary risks are not taken.

In summary, vestibular training can be a useful tool for treating the symptoms of vestibular disorders in people who have experienced a concussion. By strengthening the vestibular system, balance and orientation in space can be restored and quality of life can be improved.
