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 always got excellent help from Nick Friesen whenever we met. Through some basic movement tests, he was immediately able to pinpoint the root cause of the issue! I highly recommend his services!read more

My husband (big fan of hockey) found this physio by Googling and booked for Ian (His profile shows Ian used to be a physical therapy consultant to the Edmonton Oilers!). I had a major accident last year. I can walk on my own again without any devices because of Ian’s help and guidance. He is indeed honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, helpful, and has a good sense of humour. He sends me follow up emails to ensure that I don’t forget my training menu at home. I have never seen such a dedicated therapist in my life. The physio office is always really clean and all the receptionists are helpful. Thank you.read more

Colleen Davies is the best! I put my back out, summer 2019 and tried everything for 3 weeks until I found out about Colleen and her magic IMS needles. I was walking again the next day😀. I have been back for 2 maintenance sessions since then and my back is great!I am looking forward to some relief with my "tennis elbow" next😅All the sporty, fun, crazy activities of youth catching up! Thank you 💛read more

I cannot say enough about Paul, Lauren and the entire crew at Broadmead Orthopaedic Physio! I found Paul 20 years ago when I had unsuccessfully tried 4 other physiotherapists, and my GP recommended Paul. Paul had me fixed after 3 sessions, when all others failed! His knowledge of the entire human body system is utterly thorough! More recently, Lauren treated me for severe vertigo, fixed completely in one session ! They are the best of the best !read more
