Vestibular / Dizziness Rehabilitation
Vestibular physiotherapy is a type of rehabilitation that can be effective in treating symptoms that result from vestibular (inner ear/ balance) disorders. The inner ear is a core contributor to our balance system. The vestibular system may be affected as a result of ageing, from trauma to the head / concussion or from previous vestibular disorders, or they may occur spontaneously.
Symptoms of vestibular disorders may include:
- Vertigo or a sense of the world spinning
- Inability to focus after quick head movements
- visual disturbances
- balance problems and possibly falls
- nausea and/or vomiting
- reduced ability to concentrate or maintain focus
Those with vestibular issues may also suffer complaints of joint stiffness, reduced strength and reduced flexibility in the neck and shoulder regions.
Your physio will begin within a thorough clinical assessment followed by individualized management and rehabilitation techniques to address your specific complaints, signs and symptoms.
