At Medsana Medical, our physiotherapists have additional training and experience in the assessment and treatment of problems with the vestibular system. The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that are responsible for balance, eye movements and your sense of spatial orientation. Common symptoms of vestibular system issues include:
• Light headedness
• Impaired balance
• Double vision or other vision disturbances
• Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Our practitioners offer comprehensive vestibular physiotherapy including a thorough history of your symptoms and general health to determine the best approach for your unique situation. For the commonly found Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), small crystals are dislodged within the semi-circular vestibular system resulting in feelings of dizziness and spinning. Our physiotherapists can perform tried and tested manoeuvres to return the dislodged crystal to its correct position. For other vestibular issues, we offer a range of individualised treatments and take-home exercises.
