Vestibular Physio

No one likes feeling dizzy

Sometimes there is a simple solution to help relieve and control symptoms

If it feels the room is spinning or you can’t quite settle your eyes, Vestibular physiotherapy could be the solution you’ve been looking for. You may feel out of sorts, light headed or even a little drunk on your feet. Sometimes you get headaches and migraines, with or without aura, or have been “diagnosed” with terms such as Ménière’s disease, BPPV or vertigo, booking an Assessment with Jeremy should give you some answers.

A really common symptom is rolling over in bed and feeling the world spin around you, but also not really enjoying being in a crowd: busy places or feeling light headed when changing position are all part of vestibular distress.

Our Specialist physio Jeremy Parker is skilled in Vestibular Rehabilitation and will help you to understand why you feel dizzy or out of kilter and what can be done to help you. Depending on your symptoms he may well recommend several physio sessions but a longer term rehab plan may have to be put in place. Jeremy will work with you for the long term gain.

A physiotherapy assessment will include, but is not limited to, assessment of the neck, jaw, eye movement, balance/vestibular system, and gait. Treatment may involve some gentle hands on techniques such as the Epley manoeuvre for BPPV (Vertigo), or exercises designed to help the vestibular system, depending of the cause of the problem.

Jeremy is able to treat Cervicogenic headaches and Vestibular Hypofunction, Vestibular Migraines as well as specialising in BPPV and TMJ.
