Vestibular Therapy

Experiencing dizziness or vertigo?

Feelings of the world spinning and general unsteadiness could be a sign of a problem with the vestibular system. Also known as the inner ear, this organ is responsible for sensing the body’s acceleration and orientation in space. It is one of the three main balance systems in the body, along with our visual system and proprioceptive system. To read more about the vestibular system, read our blog article here!

Dizziness and vertigo can result from an imbalance between the left and right sides of the system, sending mixed signals to the brain. It could also be a result of crystals in the system being out of place, sending false information to the brain and causing one to feel like the world is spinning around with certain head movements; this is known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV for short.

Do you experience dizziness, vertigo, or have frequent unsteadiness when walking, especially in the dark? We can help assess your vestibular system, diagnose what may be causing your symptoms, and tailor exercises for you to improve your function. In the case of BPPV, our vestibular physiotherapist can perform maneuvers that bring the crystals in the ear back to their respective organs in the inner ear.
