Vestibular Assessment and Rehabilitation is a speciality area within physiotherapy. We have 2 physiotherapists who have undergone extensive post graduate training in Vestibular Rehabilitation. 

 

Our Vestibular Physiotherapists will thoroughly assess you, determine the cause of your symptoms, liaise with your doctor  ENT and/or neurologist as necessary and plan out a treatment programme aimed at minimising or abolishing your symptoms.  We see too many people who put up with ongoing vestibular symptoms for weeks, months or even years, thinking that there is nothing that they can do about it.  This is not the case,  with a proper diagnosis and targeted progressive rehabilitation the vast majority of people can make significant improvements from their vestibular symptoms.
