Vestibular Physiotherapy

Balance is a complex combination of what we see, what we feel and what we hear. It involves your vestibular system, your brain, your vision and your joints. If any component of our balance equation is off, problems can occur including dizziness, nausea, vertigo and a general feeling of being unsteady on your feet. Vestibular Physiotherapy at Harley Street AVM is designed to treat those and other symptoms associated with loss of balance and restore equilibrium in a safe and effective way. 

The Different Kinds of Balance Problems

Balance difficulties can take many forms and have many causes. Some of the most common causes of imbalance requiring Vestibular Physiotherapy include:
  • BPPV: BPPV stands for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, a condition caused by tiny components of the inner ear moving from their intended positions. In most cases people with BPPV experience moments of imbalance when they move their head.
  • Vestibular neuritis: Also sometimes referred to as labyrinthitis, vestibular neuritis is caused by an infection or a virus that damages parts of the balance organs resulting in vertigo, nausea and unsteadiness when standing or sitting.
  • PPPD: Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness is a state of chronic dizziness resulting from various vestibular disorders.
  • Ménière’s disease: This condition is the result of chemical changes to the fluid of the inner ear. People with Ménière’s often complain of tinnitus, vertigo, hearing loss and imbalance.

Head injuries and vestibular migraines can also cause balance problems.
