Vestibular therapy, also known as vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT), is a specialized form of physical therapy focused on treating disorders of the vestibular system, which controls balance and spatial orientation. Through tailored exercises and techniques, VRT aims to alleviate symptoms like dizziness and vertigo caused by vestibular dysfunctions. This therapy helps retrain and improve the function of the vestibular system, allowing individuals to regain their balance and reduce symptoms. It is administered by trained physical therapists and has been proven effective for various conditions such as BPPV, labyrinthitis, vestibular neuritis, and post-concussion syndrome.
