Enhance vestibular function with proper adaptive strategies. Our therapeutic goals aim to improve the physical impairments that originate from a vestibular condition.
Improve gaze stability with head and body movements
Improve postural stability and balance with biofeedback
Eliminate/improve symptoms of vertigo and/or dizziness
Improve functional tasks of daily living
Enhance Vestibular Function
- Do you experience short episodes of vertigo (sense of spinning) when moving your head, turning in bed or changing your body position?
- Do you feel unbalanced when walking or standing, especially when turning your head?
- Do you experience difficulty stabilizing your gaze and/or experience dizziness when walking outdoors or in a busy store?
- Do you avoid certain movements in your daily life in order to prevent the onset of dizziness or vertigo?
If the answer to any of the above questions is yes, you may benefit from vestibular rehabilitation in physiotherapy at Clinique NeuroGym®.

Goals & Objectives
The objective is to enhance vestibular function with proper adaptive and/or compensatory strategies. Our therapeutic goals aim to improve the physical impairments that originate from a vestibular condition. This includes:
What is the Vestibular System?
The vestibular system is located in the inner ear and it “is a sensory system that is responsible for providing our brain with information about motion, head position, and spatial orientation; it also is involved with motor functions that allow us to keep our balance, stabilize our head and body during movement, and maintain posture. Thus, the vestibular system is essential for normal movement and equilibrium.”
