About Vestibular Rehabilitation

Balance is an essential function for good quality of life and it is used with almost all daily activities. To achieve a healthy balance the brain must communicate properly with the inner ear, eyes and the joints. If this communication becomes impaired or interrupted, symptoms like dizziness, vertigo and balance disorders may emerge.

Balance disorders and dizziness are a growing concern across all age groups. Almost one in four adults under the age of 65 report symptoms of dizziness or imbalance to their GP but only 25% of them receive treatment.

The most common cause of balance disorders and dizziness is BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) but other conditions may include Meniere’s disease, Labyrinthitis, Vestibular migraine, Perilymph fistula and so on. However, dizziness and imbalance may be caused by non-vestibular causes such as side effects of medications, stress, tiredness and concentration, ageing, blood flow restrictions to the brain, neurological diseases and lack of exercise.

If you are suffering from balance disorders or dizziness, we suggest you talk to your GP or ENT specialist first who will then advise if you need vestibular rehabilitation.

Vestibular rehabilitation can include a collective of eye/head movement co-ordination exercises that are gradually progressed to improve function and reduce the effects of imbalance. If you would like to know more about vestibular rehabilitation you can contact the clinic.

Why Home Visits?

There is a wide range of benefits of being able to receive physiotherapy at home. Some patients may not be able to travel to the clinic for various reasons and having the option of receiving care at home means that we can cater to everyone. Whether you are struggling to find time to visit our clinic or you have difficulties travelling, you can book our home visit service and one of our expert physiotherapists will be able to visit you at your home.

The benefits of a home visit extend further than just the convenience. It’s also useful for our physiotherapists to understand how your home environment affects your rehabilitation and if there are any lifestyle factors that could be affecting your condition. We can then determine the best route of treatment and rehabilitation that will result in the best outcome for you. For patients that have recently undergone an operation and are recovering at home, a home visit may be an ideal solution for helping them recover quicker and giving the right advice to maintain their health.

What Can Be Expected?

After an appointment has been arranged, one of our expert physiotherapists will visit you at your home. We will bring the necessary equipment to conduct a session and the first session usually starts with a conversation to see what has been affecting you.

This enables our therapists to understand the problems that are causing discomfort or pain and this will help us to establish joint goals. The initial session is very important as it helps us to determine what you would like and how our experts can help assist you best.
