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.

    Our reviews

    When I was booking an appointment on the phone, the person was very friendly and made sure I was booked in as soon as was possible. Subsequent alterations of booked appointments have been dealt with quickly and queries answered straight away. The initial assessment by Craig felt thorough and he made sure that all possibilities were explored for the cause of my knee pain, not just going on my my description of the symptoms. Also he took his time in explaining why I was getting knee pain and the importance of how all the muscles work together in your leg, it was an education. Also my exercise programme was very quickly put together which is easily accessible from the handy app. Overall I am very satisfied with my initial assessment.
    The entire team at Physio Lounge provided a Very professional service through out from the very first contact with the administrative staff for booking the session (Kirsty and Izzy) and then a very professional clinical consultation with Craig who was really interested to get to understand my symptoms followed by a thorough clinical examination and thereafter the hands on therapy . He demonstrated and then asked me to demonstrate that I am following the therapeutic exercises appropriately which was then followed by a video of demonstration of the exercises that he emailed over to me to reinforce the exercise technique is correctly followed. I felt that Craig and his team provided me with a truly professional, non rushed ,dedicated service with patient care at the centre of the practice which has become a rarity these days .
    "I only had 3 visits and I was impressed with the booking system and the app rather than paper exercises I’ve had on previous physio visits. When it was evident I wasn’t getting any better Tom arranged for further tests with an orthopaedic consultant and I was diagnosed and x-rayed within the week.
    Thomas was an excellent, professional and friendly physio and I enjoyed the sessions and I have been left with some good exercises to carry on with.
    Great first session with Craig today. You can't believe how one session can change your life with 2 years pain . Highly recommend.
    Excellent, professional service, treatment plan for home on the app is excellent would highly recommend.
