Vestibular Physio

Vestibular disorders are a common presentation amongst the community today and can affect people of all ages.

Some of the most common symptoms of a vestibular disorder are:

  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo (room spinning sensation)
  • Unsteadiness during walking (Disequilibrium)
  • Light headedness
  • Motion sickness

All these symptoms can lead to a reduced ability to perform daily functional tasks, reduced confidence and social isolation.

A physiotherapist with a special interest in the treatment of vestibular disorders will be able to conduct a thorough assessment and outline an appropriate management plan for anyone who is experiencing symptoms of a vestibular disorder. This can involve formal physiotherapy rehabilitation, a home exercise program or even a referral to another health professional (ENT specialist, neurologist or audiologist).

Conditions that a vestibular physiotherapist can assist will include:

  • Benign Paraoxsysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Vestibular Neuritis
  • Meniere's Disease
  • Cervicogenic dizziness (neck related dizziness)
  • Presbystasis (aged related balance loss)
  • Superior Semicircular Canal Dihiscence (SSCD)
  • Imbalance following ear surgery or head injury

If you have any of the above symptoms or a diagnosed vestibular disorder, please contact us for an assessment and management plan.
