Vestibular Management

 

Vestibular Management

Vestibular or inner ear conditions can cause symptoms such as vertigo, imbalance, nausea and fatigue. Physiotherapists trained in vestibular rehabilitation perform thorough assessments with specialised equipment to ensure an appropriate treatment plan.

Our physiotherapists offer quality treatment for a wide range of vestibular conditions such as:

  • benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV
  • vestibular neuritis
  • acoustic neuroma, and
  • falls prevention

What does the vestibular system do?

The vestibular system in the inner ear detects head movements. It helps us maintain our balance and stable gaze when our head is moving.

What is a vestibular condition?

If there is dysfunction of the vestibular system, we may experience symptoms including imbalance, or vertigo. Vertigo is a false sensation of movement that can occur due to a vestibular sensory imbalance, and is often described as a spinning sensation. Other common symptoms include nausea, fatigue and a loss of balance or difficulty walking.

We can help
