Treatment of Vestibular Rehabilitation
Your ear is a complex system of bones and cartilages. Within it is a network of canals. These are called semicircular canals. The canals are filled with fluid. The position of the fluid changes with movement. A sensor in the ear then sends the information to your brain to contribute to your sense of balance. These and other delicate parts make up the vestibular system. Balance disorders can strike at any age.
Vestibular disorders can affect orientation and balance. If you are experiencing hearing changes, dizziness or even vertigo these could point to a vestibular balance disorder. Common causes include infections, medicine, calcium debris in your semicircular canals, inner ear problems such as poor blood circulation in the ear and problems rooted in the brain such as traumatic brain injury.
