Feel Like Yourself Again with Vestibular Rehab.

Many people struggle with dizziness, unsteadiness, vertigo and balance problems. While there are numerous causes of these symptoms, a large percentage originates from a problem with the part of the inner ear and the brain that helps control balance and eye movements. This is known as the vestibular system.

If disease or injury damages this system, a vestibular disorder can result. Vestibular disorders are common and can affect people of all ages.

Vestibular Rehab Victoria

Quality Care, Fast Relief

Our Effective Treatment Approach. Following a detailed medical history your vertigo physiotherapist in Victoria, BC may assess function in three major areas:
1. Eye and head movements
2. Balance and walking
3. The musculoskeletal system

SYMPTOMS OF VERTIGO

Symptoms range from mild dizziness and unsteadiness to severe vertigo lasting from a few seconds, to months or even years. Other symptoms include…
  • A spinning sensation
  • Difficulty reading or concentrating
  • Poor balance
  • Disorientation
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Sensitivity to bright lights and/or noises
  • Poor tolerance of crowds

Personalized Treatment Plan to Feel Better Fast.

Treatment for vestibular disorders varies according to the diagnosis. Vestibular rehabilitation is a drug free approach involving specific exercises to improve balance function, decrease dizzy symptoms and increase general activity levels. Your program may include one or more of the following:

  • Balance retraining exercise
  • Specific vestibular exercises
  • Supervised therapy sessions to monitor progress and continually challenge the vestibular, visual and balance systems.
  • Repositioning manoeuvre for B.P.P.V. (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) a condition where crystals are caught in the inner ear.

Get Back to Being Yourself Again.

Following your assessment you can expect to be given an individualized home exercise program specific to your needs. Your progress will be monitored during your continued therapy but you can expect to see noticeable improvements as you progress.

I was referred to Paul Macintyre by an awesome ER Dr who also saw Paul. That in itself was good enough. In fact she gave me one of his appointments because it was pretty difficult to get in.Paul's experience is validated by not only his thorough and accredited knowledge of athletic physiology, but by also carrying around a pretty beaten up one of his own. More validation.Expect a friendly (like walking into someone's living room kinda feel) atmosphere and also the satisfaction that you're working with the most up to date equipment.Nothing but great things to say about this physiotherapist.Office staff are pretty cool too. There. 🏋️‍♀️read more

I went to Broadmead Physio after struggling to get back on the bike after a severe round of patella/knee pain. Jacob identified the root cause and worked with me to design a strengthening program to treat the underlying issue and not just the symptoms. I went from a fully locked up knee and limping around to back on the bike and being active withing a few weeks. Great service at Broadmead, and I highly recommend them.read more
