The vestibular system is the part of the inner ear and brain that is involved in processing information to control balance and eye movements. If this system is damaged through disease or injury, vertigo or dizziness may result. As a result of the vertigo, you may also experience muscle tension, headaches, fatigue and anxiety.
Vestibular rehabilitation is a form of the physiotherapy that retrains the brain to process this informaiton. This is done through exercises and in some cases, manoeuvres to alleviate symptoms.
