VESTIBULAR REHAB

Dizziness, balance problems, frequent falls, nausea and motion sickness. What do all these things have in common? They are all symptoms that could occur because of vestibular (inner ear) damage.
 
Dizziness can be caused by many factors, but damage to the inner ear is a usual reason. This is because damage to our inner ear affects the nerves that signal the brain. As a result, this often impacts a patient’s sense of balance, motion, and space.
 
Our team is above all highly skilled at providing quality care and symptom relief to patients of all ages. The physiotherapists at our clinic, for instance, has experience dealing with these problems. As a result, each therapy program starts with an initial evaluation. This will be used to make a treatment plan.
