Initial consult should be with your primary care physician, neurologist or otologist if indicated. Early on, the most important treatment is brain rest, limited activities and hydration. This includes limiting visual activities ie. smart phones, computers, tv’s and avoiding florescent lighting. After the “brain rest” period, a comprehensive vestibular evaluation from an Occupational or Physical Therapist trained in assessing and treating vestibular dysfunction is extremely helpful. Treatment consists of customized exercises for balance, visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems. The focus is on providing symptom relief and help with managing your condition. The therapist can also provide recommendations and modifications if necessary to enhance your ability to return to school, work and home/life activities. Other treatment may also include a CT or MRI of the head. Cognitive Behavior Therapy, a Psychiatric consult, Neuro Ophthalmology consult, Vision Therapy, Massage Therapy and Physical Therapy for whiplash or neck injury if indicated.
