specialists in PRoviding vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT)
What causes dizziness?
Your balance comprises of three systems.
- Vestibular – your inner ear function
- Vision – your visual acuity
- Somatosensory – your system of sensory neurons and pathways that responds to changes at the surface or inside the body
Effective balance requires that each system works to its best capacity, that all 3 systems are processed easily/effectively by the brain, and that messages are sent to the eyes and postural muscles to keep vision clear and help you maintain balance.
