Specialist Vestibular Rehabilitation Service
Specialist Rehabilitation for Dizziness - Vestibular Physiotherapy
What is Vestibular Physiotherapy?
If you are experiencing dizziness, vertigo and balance problems, this may be due to a problem with your inner ears, eyes and joints working together. We need all these systems to work in harmony, to provide information that allows us to see clearly and have good balance. Other symptoms may include unsteadiness, feeling lightheaded, reduced confidence, inactivity, a loss of independence and an increased risk of falls. Vestibular Rehabilitation is a specialised form of therapy that addresses the problems caused by vestibular disorders.
What causes it?
There are a range of reasons as to why you may be feeling dizzy. Causes may come from head injury, a period of immobility, viral infection, medication and increasing age.
