Vestibular Rehab

 Vestibular Rehab

 

these therapies are administeredby by physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, technicians, and audiologists.There are also some nearly "do-it-yourself" protocols that have been tested by time (e.g. Cawthorne Cooksey)/ We think that a situation where there is an overseeing physician and a therapist, is optimal. If you are looking for help in finding someone to perform VRT, see this link. We strongly advise patients to steer clear of vestibular rehabilitation practices that lack physician oversight. Note that there are several new groups who are (in the author's opinion) practicing vestibular rehabilitation fraud. This review is unabashedly opinionated, based on 15 years of clinical experience of the author who is a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of dizziness. The main message is that vestibular rehabilitation therapy is frequently worthwhile, but selection of the best type depends on both the diagnosis and health care situation. In the Chicago area, therapists in the author's practice (Chicago Dizziness and Hearing) are highly experienced in vestibular rehabilitation. We suggest avoiding "stand-alone" VRT without physician oversight.
