Lee is certified in VESTIBULAR rehabilitation from The American Institute of Balance. When the inner ear vestibular system is not working correctly, you may feel: unsteady, sudden and severe room spinning/swaying, visual changes during head turning, difficulty with walking, dizziness with looking up or turning in bed, nausea, vomiting, difficulty concentrating, headaches and falls. Vestibular dysfunctions can include the more common conditions: BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo - "my crystals are off"), Vestibular Neuritis, Vestibular Labyrinthitis, and the aging inner ear. Lee utilizes specific vestibular activities to help the inner ear function correctly, thus, helping balance and preventing falls so you stay at home safely. When working with patients with BPPV, she uses a more comfortable technique on the neck and spine and a less fearful position with added head support than traditional BPPV maneuvers.
These visits run typically 60 minutes, depending on the treatment needed.
