Vestibular Rehab After a Concussion

Concussion, also referred to as a mild traumatic brain injury, is one of the most common neurological conditions. Concussions disrupt brain function, which results in a multitude of symptoms including dizziness, poor balance and instability. After comprehensive evaluation to accurately diagnose vestibular issues rehabilitation is many times the recommended outcome. Researchers found that vestibular rehabilitation both reduced dizziness and improved balance after a concussion. Therapists administered various exercises such as gaze stabilization and walking balance challenges. The outcomes were positive regardless of age. These techniques are still being studied but the results so far are positive.
