What to Expect

Trust your physical therapist to create a safe environment where you can practice movements needed for standing, walking, and climbing stairs. Your personalized care plan may include:

  • Epley maneuver – Treats vertigo using a series of head turns and tilts
  • Gaze stability exercises – Use eye tracking techniques to reduce dizziness


Over time, vestibular rehabilitation can make you feel more comfortable and confident taking part in daily activities. You may find it easier to get around with less reliance on a cane, walker, or another assistive device. Follow your therapist’s advice for self-care at home to achieve the best possible long-term outcome.
