Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) for Brain Function.

07 Oct Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) for Brain Function.

VRT can be an amazing option for brain function and to rehabilitate from various brain injuries.

What is VRT?

VRT is a multi-sensory program for improving brain function. It is an enjoyable activity, or “exercise,” which can be customized for all ages and skill levels for implementation in clinic, school or home.

Based on clinically proven outcomes, VRT programs strengthen existing pathways and create new neural connections/pathways in the brain (“neuroplasticity”). As these neurological connections grow stronger, language skills and emotional/psychological functions, such as self-confidence and regulation, also tend to improve.

The improvements in brain function  are based on the premise that our higher brain functions – the “cortical functions” such as language, cognitive skills, socialization – rely and depend upon how well sensory input is received and processed as it enters the central nervous system and is relayed to the upper brain.  VRT improves processing at both the sub-cortical and cortical levels.

Here is one of many research papers done which correlates balance with brain function.

Postural sway reduction in aging men and women: Relation to brain structure, cognitive status, and stabilizing factors

Edith V. Sullivana, , , Jessica Roseb, Torsten Rohlfingc, Adolf Pfefferbauma, c

Received 11 May 2007; revised 10 August 2007; Accepted 21 August 2007. Available online 24 October 2007.

Brain function such as cognitive status according to the literature has a relationship to postural sway.Greater sway was related to evidence for greater brain structural involutional changes, indexed as ventricular and sulcal enlargement and white matter hyperintensity burden.

Who Can Benefit:

VRT has a global effect on the brain and central nervous system, influencing the following systems: balance, visual, auditory, motor, coordination,  behavior and emotional regulation.  As a result, it is successfully implemented for a wide variety of conditions:

  • Learning difficulties such as reading, spelling, math, auditory processing and attention
  • Sensory processing and integration
  • Stress, sleep, emotional regulation and mood problems
  • Those with autism and neuro-developmental difficulties

Program Structure:

VRT is designed with a flexibility that allows it to be implemented for varied program lengths and locations, such as clinics, hospitals, schools and home.

Most programs involve 20-60 sessions daily, with each session being 15-30 minutes in length.
