Re: Vestibular Disorder - Getting occupational therapy for balance helps

Does anyone else have a spouse that is dealing with a Vestibular Disorder.  This can be particularly debilitating to the person.  My husband has had luck with the medication in calming the dizziness and allowing him to work, however the loss of hearing has also been very difficult.

It was very important in the beginning to get medication and occupational therapy for balance.  Because he has learned to keep his balance using his feet instead of his sight, the slightest movement or bump or obstacle can cause him to go down.  If you are just now being diagnosed, occupational therapy and recognizing how to keep your path clear or learning what can trigger instability helps alot.
