Feelings of dizziness or vertigo can greatly limit your daily life, making it difficult for you to perform even the simplest tasks without feeling as if you might fall over. Fortunately, at OPT, we offer some of the most effective vestibular rehab services, aimed at retraining your vestibular system to regulate feelings of stability and balance.
Patients with vestibular disorders — or inner ear/balance disorders — often experience chronic problems with imbalance, dizziness, visual disturbances, and vertigo. Secondary symptoms such as vomiting, fatigue, and an inability to concentrate can occur as well.
Unsurprisingly, vestibular conditions can reduce quality of life and make basic day-to-day living more difficult. Fortunately, vestibular rehab has been shown to alleviate these symptoms and restore quality of life.

Kayla Freeman is a BPPV specialist located in the Renton clinic.
There is high-quality and compelling evidence that patients diagnosed with posterior or lateral canal BPPV should be offered expeditious treatment with canalith repositioning procedures.
