Are you unable to participate in things you love because you are afraid of losing your balance? Are you frustrated with feeling dizzy? If you have vertigo, dizziness, or balance problems you may have injured your vestibular system. This can result from head trauma, inner ear issues, and/or infections, diseases, aging, stroke or brain injury, and medications. A vestibular disorder can range from mild to severe and can last from seconds to minutes to days.
Vestibular rehabilitation is an effective treatment for dizziness and balance issues for all age groups. If you suffer from these symptoms then your vestibular system may need rehabilitation:
Difficulty reading or concentrating
Depression Sensitivity to light/noises
Poor tolerance of busy environments
We can help! Our trained physiotherapists have extensive continuing education in vestibular disorders. We are experts in treating vertigo, concussions, BBPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), and other dizziness related disorders. During your initial appointment we will assess three major areas:
Balance & Mobility
Dizziness and Vertigo
From the assessment we will determine the type of vestibular dysfunction you are suffering from. We will then develop a tailored drug-free treatment plan to help your body reduce or eliminate symptoms. Your progress will be monitored at intervals until we have achieved the desired goals.
