Vestibular and Balance Program

Vestibular rehabilitation provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment of balance and orientation disorders. 

The Upper Valley Medical Center (UVMC) Vestibular and Balance Program has all the services needed to help patients with dizziness and balance problems get back on their feet. Balance results from a combination of the inner ear working in conjunction with the eyes and joints. Impairment to any of these systems can cause imbalance. Reduced vision or neuropathy can negatively affect balance, as can medications or blood pressure issues. The symptoms of dizziness vary from person to person. 

The most common inner ear problem, caused by floating “rocks” in the ear being out of place, is benign paroxismal positional vertigo, or vertigo

The patient’s ability to tell the history - when the dizziness began, when it mostly likely will occur and what they experience including nausea or vomiting - is very important. 

The duration of the vertigo gives clues as to the cause of the problem. Vertigo also can be accompanied by other inner ear findings, including hearing loss, ringing, roaring-type tinnitus, or nausea and vomiting.

However, some vertigo can be an isolated symptom.
