Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) or vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is a specialized form of therapy that attempts to alleviate primary and secondary problems caused by vestibular disorders. These problems can decrease an individual’s ability to concentrate, cause nausea and vomiting and may also promote an individual to become sedentary to avoid disturbances. Individuals experiencing symptoms from vestibular disorders can benefit from vestibular rehabilitation. Evidence has demonstrated that with treatment, the symptoms can be greatly reduced or diminished. Lack of treatment can decrease an individual’s independence in everyday life and have some secondary effects on a person’s confidence in one self.
