How We Treat It
When you initially receive a diagnosis of vestibular schwannoma, you might be dealing with questions and symptoms. We are here to help facilitate your care and help teach and train you compensatory and management strategies to help dealing with symptoms.
If you are a surgical candidate, starting vestibular therapy immediately after your surgery will have best benefits for minimizing long term side effects of dizziness, imbalance, and motion sensitivity.
