Video Blog: Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy Day 1 and beyond

ATTENTION: If you suffer from a vestibular disorder or are sensitive to motion and movement, please note that this video is at times shaky. ( I am working on a solution)

I will be documenting my journey through Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy. This video details day one. I end up running into the insurance machine but this time I prevail.

The focus of this visit was initial evaluation. The purpose of the visit was to provide history and set realistic expectations.

The goggles are part of the device called Videonystagmoscopy

“Videonystagmoscopy has been used to subjectively observe the responses of the vestibular system in a population of patients with vestibular deficits. The videonystagmoscopy device is made of one or two CCD cameras mounted on lightproof goggles, allowing a subjective observation of ocular movements on a video monitor. The eye movements, as well as the position of the head in space, can be recorded on videotape.”

As we reveal my defects we will gather a realistic expectation of what can be achieved through vestibular rehabilitation.

Much love,
Marissa
