Get Fast Relief from Dizziness, Unsteadiness, Spinning Sensation, & Balance Problems
Feel Like Yourself Again with Vestibular Rehab.
Many people struggle with dizziness, unsteadiness, vertigo and balance problems. While there are numerous causes of these symptoms, a large percentage originates from a problem with the part of the inner ear and the brain that helps control balance and eye movements. This is known as the vestibular system.
If disease or injury damages this system, a vestibular disorder can result. Vestibular disorders are common and can affect people of all ages.
