DIZZINESS, VERTIGO & BALANCE REHABILITATION

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based programme which aims to facilitate the ability of the central nervous system to compensate for vestibular problems (e.g. problems in the inner ear) and improve your quality of life if you are experiencing dizziness, vertigo, balance or gait disorders.

 

It is an effective treatment approach in reducing dizziness, vertigo, unsteadiness and risk of falling. It can also help to improve your confidence in movement and your overall physical activity levels.
