Vertigo, imbalance and dizziness are symptoms of Vestibular dysfunction. Vestibular dysfunction is a result of a sensory imbalance in the inner ear causing disequilibrium. It can present as blurred vision, unsteady walking, decreased concentration and / or increased tiredness. Common problems are BPPV, vestibular neuritis, Meniere ’s disease, stroke or acoustic neuroma, or symptoms post trauma, concussion, whiplash or head injury. The cause of Vestibular dysfunction needs to be carefully assessed by asking the right questions and doing the right clinical tests to determine the problem. Your assessment includes the use of state of the art diagnostic tools. At On-Balance Physiotherapy treatment is tailored to your problem and how it presents.
