Vestibular rehabilitation is for anyone who has a problem with vertigo, dizziness or imbalance. Here are some of the conditions that vestibular physiotherapy can treat:
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), caused by crystals floating in the inner ear
- Vestibular Neuritis, Labyrinthitis
- Vestibular Migraine
- Unilateral and Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction
- Acoustic neuroma, vestibular schwannoma
- Imbalance, falls, non-specific dizziness
What happens at an assessment for a vestibular problem?
Using a combination of clinical balance and vestibular function tests, our physiotherapist will be able to pinpoint the problem and develop a treatment plan to address your deficits and meet your goals.
In the case of BPPV, assessments are carried out using infra-red goggle technology in order to ensure that testing gives the most reliable results, leading to a more specific and effective treatment.
Vestibular physiotherapy can help reduce vertigo, dizziness, and motion sensitivity, making you more comfortable and confident. It can also help improve balance and gait, helping you to to be more independent and get back to your normal life more quickly.
