Vestibular Physiotherapy

Vestibular rehabilitation is the assessment and treatment of problems relating to dizziness and balance.  As vestibular physiotherapists we aim to identify and treat the cause of your dizziness or balance problems.

Benign Positional Paroxysmal Vertigo or BPPV

Is a common vestibular disorder where calcium crystals in the inner ear become dislodged, creating a fluid imbalance which causes dizziness when moving your head. This can be diagnosed by using the Dix-Hallpike manoeuvre.  Vestibular rehabilitation aims to reposition the calcium crystals by using the Epley manoeuvre and progressive head and eye exercises.
