Vestibular rehab

There are a wide range of causes as to why people experience dizziness, loss of balance or falls.

For some people disturbances is the inner ear and how it interacts with the eyes can lead to these symptoms. 

These symptoms may include;

⦁ dizziness on certain head movements
⦁ vertigo – a feeling that you or the room around you is moving
⦁ nausea and vomiting
⦁ general loss of balance (often worse in the dark or on uneven surfaces)
⦁ reduced activity due to avoidance of activities that provoke symptoms
⦁ neck tension

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular Rehabilitation is an exercise and movement-based approach for the treatment of dizziness and balance problems. This treatment can be effective for people of all ages regardless of how long the symptoms have been occurring. Treatment can consist of hands-on techniques to reduce symptoms or an individualized exercise program (or both!).

  • Vestibular Neuritis and Labyrinthitis (inflammation often caused by a viral infection)
  • Age-related problems
  • Ménière's disease
  • Concussion
  • General imbalance/dizziness problems
