Vestibular dysfunctions occur when either the information provided by your vestibular system in your inner ear is inadequate or your central processing of these systems by your brain stem and cerebellum is not working as it should. Usually your visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems work together to keep you balance and allow your body to be aware of its exact position in space, however if this system is not working certain symptoms may result such as;
- light or heavy headedness
- blurred vision
- nausea / vomiting
Alison, our Vestibular Physiotherapist, will perform a detailed assessment to determine which part of your vesibular system is not functioning as it should. To enable most accurate diagnosis you will be assessed with infrared video googles and force platform as part of your examination.
So if any of these symptoms are disrupting your life, put up with them no longer, relief may only be a treatment away!
