Vestibular Therapy

Helping you regain and maintain your balance

Vestibular Therapy at Mount Auburn Hospital 

Vestibular conditions affect your balance. You may feel dizziness or experience vertigo. Physical therapy helps you overcome these balance problems. At Mount Auburn Hospital, we use vestibular therapy to keep you active.

You work one-on-one with a physical therapist. We teach you exercises to improve your stability. You will also learn self-care strategies to improve balance.

Care for Balance Disorders 

Vestibular conditions include:

  • Difficulty with balance and walking
