Vision therapy improves vertigo recovery

Susan tried vestibular rehabilitation to address vertigo with little progress. Vision therapy provided insight.

I was diagnosed with disequilibrium and vestibular/ vision mismatch last fall. It was so debilitating that I was unable to work. I was almost constantly dizzy, nauseated, and anxious. I was unable to concentrate and had frequent headaches whenever I tried to read a book or work on the computer. I tried vestibular and balance rehabilitation but made little progress until I started visual rehabilitation with Dr. McCrodan and his team.

Dr. McCrodan was able to explain everything to me and the results of the rehabilitation happened exactly the way he had explained. It took about 3 months of therapy but then I really started to see improvement and noticed that I could read or use the computer for 30-60 min without headaches. I was able to go out of the house and not be afraid of becoming dizzy and nauseated. I made steady progress after that and have completed 20 weeks of therapy now.

I recently drove to Vancouver and took the ferry and had no difficulty with vertigo. I’m so improved that I am returning to my job as an RN. I know I would not be able to do this without the help of Dr. McCrodan and his wonderful team.
