The vestibular system is a part of your inner ear that helps you to control balance. When it has been injured you may experience dizziness, vertigo and/or balance issues. The term dizziness refers to a range of uncomfortable sensations, including feeling light-headed, feeling faint, losing your normal sense of balance, feeling woozy and having a false feeling of your body spinning around or moving to one side. The term vertigo refers more specifically to a false sense of spinning or sideways movement.
The most important start is to ensure a thorough assessment to achieve a correct diagnosis. Once our therapist trained in Vestibular Rehab has reached a diagnosis, an individualised treatment plan will be developed tailored to your needs and appropriate treatment and a home exercise program will be provided to help you achieve your goals as quickly as possible.
