Vestibular Rehabilitation Explained

What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular Rehabilitation is the diagnosis and treatment of dizziness and imbalance often as a result of problems of the inner ear.  At the Rehab Hub it is provided by Annie Head, who has over ten years experience in this field.

You may or may not already have a diagnosis of a problem within your inner ear.  Possibly you are experiencing some of the symptoms described in the following list of conditions, in each which case Annie will assess and treat accordingly.

Commonly treated problems of the inner ear:

What can I expect at my initial appointment?

A thorough history of your symptoms will be taken followed by an examination involving various eye and movement/balance tests to establish the possible cause(s) of your problem. The appointment will last up to an hour and you will be given advice and some possibly exercises to start.  It is worth bringing someone with you to the initial consultation particularly if you are driving, as some of the tests may make you feel dizzier for a short period of time.  This is particularly important for people with BPPV.

If you have any questions about the assessment or whether you feel Vestibular Rehabilitation could help you, please do not hesitate to email or telephone Annie Head directly.
