Vestibular Team

The VNS Vestibular Rehabilitation Team is a specialty team with expertise in a wide variety of balance disorders.  Vestibular Rehabilitation is used to improve the problems resulting from vestibular dysfunction and central balance disorders.  The goal is to decrease dizziness and/or vertigo, improve balance, and restore the individual's previous quality of life.  By decreasing the frequency, intensity and duration of dizziness or vertigo, symptoms such as headache, nausea and lightheadedness are decreased and independent mobility is improved.

  • BPPV
  • Otolith Dysfunction
  • Vestibular Labyrinthitis/Neuritis
  • Acoustic Neurom
  • Ototoxicity
  • Meniere's Disease
  • Neurologic Disorders (stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis)
