Vertigo/Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vertigo/Vestibular Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation for vertigo disorders involve an assessment and careful identification of factors that trigger episodes of dizziness. There are many causes of vertigo. The primary cause is a problem with the vestibular organ of the inner ear. This part of your balance system provides your brain with information about the position and movement of your head in space. The most common form of vestibular disorder is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV. Effective treatment for BPPV is a procedure called the Epley Manoeuvre (also called the Otolith Repositioning Procedure).This procedure is performed by a specially trained physiotherapist in the clinic.
