Vestibular Disorders

Vestibular disorders affect the inner ear and one’s sense of balance and cause dizziness and nausea. The vestibular system is involved in coordinating the body’s balance and signals. A disruption or injury to this system causes an imbalance and a false sensation of movement. If left untreated, balance disorders can worsen unsteadiness, concentration and memory issues, inactivity, an increased risk of falls, anxiety, and a loss of independence.

Physiotherapy can improve balance disorders to a great degree. Before beginning the treatment, your physiotherapist will perform a few tests including:

  • Analysis of your eye movements using infra-red goggles
  • Positional testing to determine the cause of your dizziness
  • Balance testing

With physiotherapy, patients experience immediate and lasting relief and develop better-coping strategies.
