Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular conditions can be due to problems in your inner ear balance organ, visual system, central or peripheral nervous systems or cervical spine. There are also other medical conditions, medications, psychological or musculoskeletal problems that can cause dizziness, vertigo and imbalance. Some conditions can even mimic each other making differential diagnosis challenging.

Working out where your dizziness is coming from is essential to formulating an appropriate and effective management plan. Some conditions benefit from specific exercises or lifestyle measures which is where Vestibular Physiotherapy is helpful. Vestibular rehabilitation has been shown to improve motion sensitivity, balance, strength, mobility and quality of life for a variety of balance conditions.

Other dizziness conditions may benefit from medications, referral to a specialist such as a Neurologist, Otolaryngologist (ENT) or Cardiologist, while many conditions benefit from a combined approach. Our vestibular therapist’s thorough assessment and advanced training can direct you to the most appropriate specialist and best management plan.
