Many people have experienced some form of dizziness, vertigo, giddiness, light-headedness, in balance at some point in their life.
Dizziness and Vertigo
Our brain and spinal cord receive information from our eyes, ears, muscles and joints to keep us in balance during everyday activities - even including sitting!
The problem occurs when any one of those systems fails to provide, receive or interpret the information correctly.
Our physio trained in this area are able to access each individual system and prescriber exercises that will stimulate and retrain the body.

What is Vestibular Physiotherapy?
Vestibular Physiotherapy, also known as Vestibular Rehabilitation, is a specialised branch of physiotherapy focused on diagnosing and treating conditions related to the vestibular system. The vestibular system plays a crucial role in maintaining balance, spatial orientation, and coordinating eye movements. When this system is disrupted by injury, disease, or other factors, it can lead to symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo (a sensation of spinning), unsteadiness, and even nausea.
Common Vestibular Conditions We Treat:
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): Characterised by brief episodes of vertigo triggered by specific head movements.
- Labyrinthitis: Inflammation of the inner ear that can cause vertigo and loss of balance.
- Vestibular Neuritis: An infection or inflammation of the vestibular nerve, leading to severe vertigo.
- Meniere's Disease: A disorder of the inner ear causing episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus, and a feeling of fullness in the ear.
- Post-Concussion Syndrome: Vestibular physiotherapy can help manage dizziness and balance problems after a head injury.
How Vestibular Physiotherapy Can Help:
Our expert vestibular physiotherapists will conduct a comprehensive assessment to identify the underlying cause of your vestibular symptoms. Based on the evaluation, a personalised treatment plan will be developed to address your specific needs. Treatment techniques may include:
- Canalith Repositioning Procedures: For BPPV, specific maneuvers are used to reposition displaced crystals in the inner ear, providing relief from vertigo.
- Balance Retraining Exercises: Customised exercises to improve balance and stability and reduce the risk of falls.
- Gaze Stabilisation Exercises: Eye movement exercises to enhance visual stability during head movements.
- Habituation Exercises: Repetitive movements that help the brain adapt and reduce dizziness caused by certain triggers.
- Education and Lifestyle Modifications: Our vestibular physiotherapists provide valuable insights and recommendations to manage symptoms in daily life.
