Do you suffer from disabling dizziness or vertigo? Does it cause you to lose your balance, trip or even fall? Vestibular Physiotherapy is a targeted assessment and treatment approach that helps to determine the cause of your dizziness and then use specific techniques and exercises to improve your symptoms and help you get back to feeling normal.
The Vestibular System is found inside the inner ear and it is connected to your Visual System. If you are having issues with your Vestibular System you may experience vertigo, dizziness, spinning, nausea and vomiting, light headedness, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), double-vision, or impaired balance.
Inside your inner ear you have three canals that tell our body about how we are moving in our environment. They are responsible for keeping us upright and oriented to how fast we are moving and in what direction.
The vestibular system sends very important signals to your brainstem and nerves that control your eye and your balance.
