Vestibular Rehabilitation includes treatment of vertigo and balance issues related to the vestibular system (or inner ear problems).
Possible causes of balance problems include:
Mayo Clinic Health System in Red Wing has two physical therapists, Kerry Finne and Emily Flaaen, with advanced training in vestibular rehabilitation evaluation and treatment.
People with balance issues, a history of falls and certain types of dizziness, may benefit from a comprehensive physical therapy evaluation to determine the cause of balance problems and dizziness.
Physical therapists evaluate a person’s strength, range of motion, gait and balance as well as perform specific tests of the vestibular system.
Vestibular Rehabilitation treatment requires a provider referral for Physical Therapy (PT) to evaluate and treat, and is covered by most health plans.
