Not all symptoms will be experienced by every person and other symptoms are possible. It is also important to note that these can also be caused by other conditions. This is why it is important to talk with your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. If it is determined that you may have a vestibular disorder or have sustained a concussion, vestibular rehabilitation can help. Ask your doctor for a referral for vestibular rehabilitation at Carlisle Place Physical Therapy & Occupational Therapy.
