Vestibular Rehabilitation

The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling balance and eye movements. If disease or injury damages these processing areas, vestibular disorders can result. Vestibular disorders can also result from or be worsened by genetic or environmental conditions, or occur for unknown reasons. The most commonly diagnosed vestibular disorders include:
  • benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
  • labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis
  • Ménière’s disease
  • perilymph fistula
  • secondary endolymphatic hydrops
Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas is proud to offer vestibular rehabilitation therapy at both our Beaumont and Orange Outpatient Therapy locations. Our clinically trained staff provides the latest evidence-based treatments. We are members of the Vestibular Disorders Association, an organization that  has been a highly respected scientific source of  information on vestibular disorders for more than 30 years.

Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized form of therapy designed to alleviate symptoms of vestibular disorders. The staff at Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas creates individualized programs to retrain the body's awareness senses that correspond with the inner ear, vision and/or receptors in muscles and joints.  Therapies may include:
  • balance exercises
  • eye movement exercises
  • flexibility training
  • strengthening exercises
