Vestibular Physiotherapy

  • Are you suffering from dizzy spells, loss of balance or nausea?
  • Do you lack confidence with your balance?
  • Do you have issues looking over your shoulder or rolling in bed?
  • Is your weekly shop becoming more of an ordeal due to dizziness?

If so, you may be suffering from a vestibular disorder.

Many people experience minor dizzy spells in day-to-day life. However, some conditions can severely limit daily function, impacting on your quality of life.

    What is the vestibular system?

    The vestibular system is made up of the inner ear, the nerve tissue from the inner ear to the brain and the brain itself, helping to control balance and eye movements. Information is co-ordinated with the brain, the eyes and the muscles, to maintain balance and visual focus. A disruption to any of these tissues may cause dizziness, balance problems, nausea and vomiting.

    I genuinely couldn’t recommend these guys enough. I ruptured my Achilles’ tendon in January this year, and I knew I needed to find a physio with a professional sports background to get me back to the level I needed to be at. They helped me throughout lockdown whenever possible, and was always on hand with any help or advice I needed. Once I became more mobile and had reached the level where I could really start pushing hard again, I was introduced to Tom. This couldn’t have come at a better time, as I was at a level where I was ready to bridge that gap between feeling strong again, but not quite ready for the explosive aspect of my job. Tom recognised straight away what needed to be addressed, and he broke down all the big movements with me over the next few weeks. He took me from not having the confidence in my Achilles to single leg hop, to sprinting close to 100% in the space of 3 weeks. His knowledge is second to none and I’m so grateful to him and the rest of the guys at the physio lounge for getting me back to where I needed to be. Aside from that, all the staff are great people, friendly, and only have you’re best interests at heart.

    Developed severe lower back pain through working from home during the Covid-19 pandemic. Phsyio Lounge carried out ergonomic desk assessment (with Craig) and had 4 video physiotherapy sessions with Sam which has worked wonders. Improved with every session, almost pain free, but left fully understanding what i need to do to make the final step be be totally pain free. Initially sceptical about video sessions but they did work effectively. Sam was very professional, fully explained everything in detail throughout the course of treatment. Well impressed with set up. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Sam, thank you Physio Lounge. P.S. The exercises have even improved my golf swing!! Bonus!

    I would like to thank The Physio Lounge for the recent help i received. I had hurt my lower back and was in extreme pain. I thought due to the covid 19 restrictions i would have to suffer. However i contacted the Physio Lounge and a video call was set up . Craig was extremely sympathetic, knowledgeable and professional. He soon set me up with exercises and regular updates. I highly recommend The Physio Lounge .

    Had a virtual assessment with Craig due to a running injury during lockdown. I was so pleased with the virtual appointment and didn’t expect to receive such a fabulous service and excellent advice on a video appointment. Thank you Craig you’ve helped me to continue with my running during lockdown. An excellent service provided even in these difficult times.

    I have been attending The Physio Lounge since September 2019 twice a week after a serious motorcycle accident with very complex injuries. I have nothing but admiration for Craig and his colleagues dealing and treating me. They have shown me total respect, and without doubt have made my recovery better and quicker than I could of ever expected. I am very fortunate that my case manager engaged The Physio Lounge to help and manage the physio treatment I needed. I can not sing loud enough the praises for Craig and his staff in helping me.
