  • Dizziness
  • Spinning

Vestibular rehabilitation at Covenant Therapy Centers is an exercise based approach aimed at eliminating or minimizing imbalance and dizziness.  Therapy may include:

  • Balance activities
  • Eye movement activities
  • Habituation exercises specifically for vertigo
  • Epley Maneuver
