Gerringong and Kiama Physiotherapy also assess and manage vertigo, dizziness, balance and vestibular conditions. Our vestibular physiotherapists have post graduate training and professional development in this area, and can manage conditions including:
- Vestibular hypofunction
- Vestibular neuritis
- Vestibular migraine
- Meniere’s disease
- Cervicogenic (neck-related) dizziness
Your vestibular physiotherapist will perform a comprehensive assessment, including a thorough history of symptoms and a clinical examination of balance and vestibular function.
The vestibular system (inner ear) controls our gaze and postural stability. In our assessment we examine eye movements and deficits in postural control in static and dynamic positions, specific to your health and lifestyle goals.
Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise based approach to the management of most vestibular conditions. Following a thorough assessment, we can provide a tailored, individualised treatment plan, based on your needs and goals.
This may include education, advice and an exercise program specific to your condition. It may also be suitable for you to join our PhysioStrong balance and general exercise class, once your initial symptoms are controlled.
