Vertigo & Dizziness
Vertigo and dizziness can be disorienting and significantly impact an individual's ability to carry out everyday activities. At Physio Hub, we specialize in addressing the complex and varied factors that contribute to vertigo and dizziness, offering comprehensive assessments and tailored interventions to restore balance and alleviate these symptoms.
Vertigo and dizziness can stem from a multitude of causes, ranging from inner ear issues to neurological conditions. Our approach involves a meticulous examination to identify the root cause and formulate a targeted plan for effective management.
Factors contributing to vertigo and dizziness include:
Inner Ear Disorders: Conditions such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere's disease, and vestibular neuritis can disrupt the normal functioning of the inner ear, leading to vertigo. Our team is adept at differentiating these conditions and implementing appropriate interventions.
Neurological Conditions: Certain neurological disorders, such as migraines or disorders affecting the brainstem, can manifest as vertigo and dizziness. Our comprehensive assessments include considerations for neurological factors, enabling accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment.
Dehydration or Low Blood Sugar: In some cases, dehydration or low blood sugar levels can contribute to feelings of dizziness. Our holistic approach involves addressing lifestyle factors that may exacerbate symptoms.
Medication Side Effects: Certain medications may have side effects that include dizziness or vertigo. We work collaboratively with healthcare providers to assess medication-related factors and adjust treatment plans accordingly.
Postural Instability: Issues with balance and postural control can contribute to feelings of dizziness. Our team employs specialized exercises and interventions to enhance proprioception and improve balance.

Vertigo and dizziness can be caused by conditions such as inner ear disorders, vestibular migraines, or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). If you experience recurrent episodes of vertigo, unsteadiness, or dizziness, especially during specific movements or changes in position, it's advisable to consider physiotherapy. Seeking early intervention can help identify the cause, alleviate symptoms, and improve overall balance and stability.
Physiotherapy for vertigo and dizziness involves specialized techniques known as vestibular rehabilitation. During a session, your physiotherapist will conduct a thorough assessment to identify the specific issues affecting your vestibular system. Treatment may include gaze stabilization exercises, balance training, and maneuvers to address conditions like BPPV. Each session is tailored to your needs, aiming to reduce symptoms and improve overall vestibular function.

Treatment may involve exercises and maneuvers to improve the function of the vestibular system, promoting better balance and reducing symptoms.
Physiotherapy is not only for treating existing vertigo and dizziness but can also play a preventive role.
