Balance or Vestibular disorders may be described as dizziness, lightheadedness, unsteadiness or vertigo.

Some causes can include low blood pressure, anxiety, diabetes, heart conditions or inner ear problems.

Why am I dizzy?

Vertigo and balance problems may be related to ‘vestibular abnormality’, and are more common than many people realise.

In each inner ear there are small canals filled with fluid which moves when your head moves. This movement stimulates nerve endings which send messages to your brain about your head position. The system works closely with your eye muscles, allowing you to focus on an object even when you are moving.

This finely tuned system helps keep us upright and balanced. If there is a problem, you may feel dizzy, nauseous, have blurred vision, flickering eyes or feel unstable when walking. You might also get neck pain as the muscles are working too hard to keep you balanced. These symptoms may last from a few seconds to many months.

Who is at risk of balance problems?

Balance problems can affect anyone and can be associated with a number of causes such as low blood-pressure, medication, virus and commonly a problem with the balance function in the  inner ear.

Some balance problems are caused by misplaced crystals in the inner ear balance-organs, and as part of your therapy, we will help you with some head movements to reposition the crystals – this is successful in 95% of cases. Most vestibular disorders can be rehabilitated within two to five appointments, after which you are able to continue your exercises at home.

We have invested in state of the art equipment and training to help diagnose and treat balance disorders. Our fully qualified Physiotherapist will guide you through the process from:

How are balance issues diagnosed?

Dizziness may be described as light-headedness, unsteadiness or vertigo. Some causes can include low blood pressure, anxiety, diabetes, heart conditions, brain disorders or inner ear problems, so it is important to have it diagnosed by your doctor, who may refer you to an Audiologist or Physiotherapist. We will work closely with your GP to ensure the highest level of care for you.
