Do you suffer from balance issues? Dizziness? Or vertigo related to Vestibular dysfunction?
Did you know that treatment with a Physiotherapist trained in Vestibular rehabilitation may be able to help?
The Vestibular system, often referred to as your “inner ear”, has organs specifically designed to identify where your head is in space and keep you upright and oriented to your environment. If this system is damaged or compromised it can lead to any of the following symptoms:
- Vertigo (Feeling as though the world is spinning around you)
- Dizziness (imbalance or disequilibrium)
- Nausea or vomiting
- Loss of balance
- Ringing in the ears
- Associated Neck pain
- Fear and avoidance of daily activities that may increase any of the above
These symptoms can be the result of an infection, head trauma, concussion, or other pathologies of the inner ear. These pathologies include Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s disease, Vestibular neuritis or labyrinthitis, and unilateral or bilateral vestibular loss
