Almost 1 in 4 adults under 65 years report dizziness or vertigo. Let us help you regain your confidence with our experienced vestibular physio.
Vestibular Rehabilitation is a specialised program of treatment to enable normal responses of the eyes, ears and brain to positional changes so that normal balance can be restored. When there is a problem, the brain can no longer rely on the organs for accurate information and can give a false sensation of movement and imbalance. Symptoms may include disorientation, vertigo/room spinning, dizziness, visual disturbances, headaches or migraine and balance problems.
Conditions that are known to respond well to vestibular rehabilitation include:Labyrinthitis, Vestibular Neuronitis, BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), Vertigo, Ménière’s disease, Vestibular Migraine, Acoustic Neuroma (pre and post-surgery) and dizziness in the elderly.
Avoiding movement delays recovery and so early treatment is essential.The benefits of physiotherapy treatment can be dramatic with some patients achieving immediateand lasting relief enabling you to regain independence, reduce the risk of falls and restore confidence.
At Physiofit, our assessment and treatment protocols are based on sound evidence-based research and clinically proven techniques and are customised for each patient. Our specially trained Physiotherapist, Jean Thistleton has over 10 years of experience in vestibular rehabilitation and after a thorough assessment will discuss with you your treatment options which may include specific techniques to treat symptoms for BPPV such as the Epley manoeuvreand bespoke exercises.
Before starting vestibular rehabilitation we ask that you see a doctor first to exclude other conditions.
