I’m a registered physiotherapist working at bodywork sports physio in North Vancouver.
Vestibular rehabilitation and what it is essentially?
Vestibular rehabilitation treats:

  • vertigo,
  • dizziness
  • feelings of lightheadedness
  • nausea and symptoms that come along with dizziness

Dizziness can be caused by:

  • neck
  • the inner ear or the eyes

Mismatch between those systems will create a bit of a dizziness sensation that you register.
