How does it differ from vestibular therapy?

Vestibular rehabilitation traditionally follows the “habituation” paradigm. To put it simply, tests are performed to see if there is hypofunction in a certain activity. If not, then a standard protocol of exercise therapies is applied, or the test is repeated over and over (habituated) until there is symptomatic improvement or failure to improve. Our vestibular rehabilitation paradigm follows more of a “corrective” approach. We seek to find which other systems in the brain may be causing this system to malfunction, and to work out all of the details that may cause the “big picture hypofunction.” It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.”-John Wooden
