Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation therapy may be offered to veterans suffering from dizziness and balance disorders. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is an exercise-based approach to management of dizziness and balance disorders. The therapy has been advocated as a treatment of choice for many patients suffering from dizziness and balance disorders. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy is provided by Mary Jo Davenport, P.T., M.S., a consultant in Audiology and Speech Pathology Service at Mountain Home and assistant professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at East Tennessee State University. The Vestibular/Balance Laboratory was initiated through VISN (Initiative Pool) funding to document therapeutic outcome of vestibular rehabilitation on a geriatric population.
