  • Conditions We Treat

    DIZZINESS/VERTIGO

    Whether you have sudden attacks of spinning, a constant feeling of unsteadiness or head movement-provoked dizziness. 

    BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO (BPPV)

    Symptoms include brief spinning when you tip your head up or down, when you roll over or get out of bed. 

    UNILATERAL AND BILATERAL VESTIBULAR LOSS (HYPOFUNCTION)

     

    e.g. Vestibular neuritis, Labyrinthitis

    Symptoms may include a sudden onset of dizziness or spinning which is fairly constant. Gradually becoming present only with head movement. You may also experience occasional blurring of your vision.

    BALANCE DISORDERS AND FALLS RISK

    Vertigo can affect balance and consequently lead to an increased risk of falls. Balance training is extremely effective in reducing falls risk. 

    VESTIBULAR MIGRAINE

    Dizziness may or may not be accompanied by a headache. Things that normally bring on a migraine may act as triggers for your vertigo. Other symptoms of migraine may include seeing things in your vision which aren't there for example zig-zag lines or flashing lights. You may be sensitive to light and/or sound. 

    ACOUSTIC NEUROMA, MENIERE'S DISEASE, STROKE

    Diagnosed by a doctor, acoustic neuroma responds well to vestibular rehabilitation. 


    Dizziness may be accompanied by ringing in the ears known as tinnitus, a feeling of fullness in the ears and hearing loss. 


    We also treat patients with acute or chronic stroke symptoms. Current research proves stroke rehabilitation and gains do not need to end once the patient leaves the hospital. Improvements in physical function can occur years after a stroke.
