Vestibular Physiotherapy

Labyrinthitis: Causes, symptoms, treatment, and recoveryThe vestibular system is located within the inner ear and contributes to our sense of balance. The vestibular system is important for balance, coordination, and eye control and works with the upper joints of the neck. Stress to any part of these systems can cause a sense of dizziness, unbalance, vertigo, and feeling just 'off'.

Having undergone advanced training in the assessment and treatment of the vestibular system, Dr. Doug Cary can assist you in the management of your vestibular symptoms.

Common symptoms seen with disorders of the vestibular system:

  • A lightheaded or floating sensation
  • Vertigo: A type of dizziness that involves a spinning sensation. This often happens with movement of the head or rolling over in bed
  • Imbalance: Difficulty walking straight especially in low light situations
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fuzzy or hungover feeling
  • The sensation of fullness in the ears

Because vertigo symptoms are so debilitating, we will prioritise your appointment. Please phone us on 90715055 and explain that you are experiencing vertigo and require an urgent appointment.
