Revive Medical Center is proud to now offer vestibular rehabilitation to patients suffering from traumatic brain injury.
Vestibular rehabilitation (VR), also known as vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) is an exercise-based therapy that has been specially designed to relieve vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, and vision instability. This innovative program taps into the patient’s other senses in order to provide the relief they are hoping for. Exercises are prescribed based on the patient’s individual symptoms and include habituation, gaze stabilization, and balance training.
Vestibular Rehabilitation for Concussion and Post Concussion Syndrome
Post-concussion can cause you to suffer from concussion symptoms for weeks or even months after the initial injury. This lingering disorder is classified as a mild traumatic brain injury, but if you are suffering from it, it is extremely debilitating. Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is a great treatment option for someone who has suffered a concussion or is currently suffering from post-concussion syndrome. Set up a free consultation with Revive Medical Center to see if you are a good candidate for this revolutionary therapy.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy for Vertigo
Vertigo causes patients to feel as though the room is spinning around them or that they are moving when they are standing still. This marked dizziness is often described as being similar to motion sickness and can cause major interruptions in a person’s daily life. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy can relieve the feeling of dizziness by using exercises designed to increase balance and gaze stabilization allowing the patient to feel more in control.
Traumatic Brain Injury Testing
If you have been in an automobile accident, we recommend that you be tested for a traumatic brain injury. By getting tested early, we will be able to start your treatment plan sooner. Traumatic brain injuries often go unnoticed until days or weeks after an accident. By getting tested immediately, we can catch an injury that may have otherwise gone unnoticed, putting you at risk for further injury due to vertigo, drowsiness, or other debilitating symptoms.
If you are suffering from traumatic brain injury, call Revive Medical Center to schedule a consultation today. Once we know more information about your symptoms and the injury itself, we can see if vestibular rehabilitation therapy is right for you. We are a licensed VRT treatment facility conveniently located right here in Metro Atlanta.
