Vestibular and balance disorders may result from CVA, trauma, infection, debilitation, congenital conditions and numerous other conditions. Patients are seen in all settings, both orthopedic and neurologic. Vestibular disorders can cause disturbing symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo, nausea, anxiety, fatigue, and imbalance. The related impairments can lead to functional limitation and disability. Balance related falls can be devastating, even fatal. Evidence has shown vestibular disorders are frequently not diagnosed or treated properly. Research has demonstrated vestibular and balance rehabilitation to be highly effective.
