What is a vestibular physiotherapist?

A vestibular physiotherapist is a therapist who, on top of their physiotherapy diploma, has followed specific training to specialise in vestibular rehabilitation. Vestibular physiotherapy is a specific field that not all physios are trained for, as it usually falls outside their physio curriculum.

Vestibular physiotherapy treats patients who suffer from conditions that affect the vestibular system and their balance: vertigo, dizziness, BPPV, motion sickness (kinetosis), repetitive falls, visual vertigo, inner ear infection…

How does the vestibular system work?

Your vestibular system includes your inner ear and your central nervous system. To simplify, your vestibular system helps you with your sense of balance and orientation in space, which makes it necessary to your coordination of movements, your posture and the position of your head. Without your vestibular system, you wouldn’t be able to move through space or stand without falling. That’s the reason why it is important to see a vestibular physiotherapist if you start having issues with your vestibular system (vertigo).

Do I have a vestibular disorder?

A vestibular disorder can come from a pathology, infection or injury that affects your vestibular system. As your inner ear and central nervous system are responsible for your balance and what it entails, if it gets affected in any way then the first symptom will be a loss of balance and coordination.

Losing your balance is a very common symptom that happens often when you change position too quickly, when you stand or lay down. It usually lasts a few seconds and then goes away. However, if this off-balance sensation happens too often or lasts for longer (minutes or hours) then you may suffer from a balance and vestibular disorder. If you do, your first step will be to have an assessment with a vestibular physiotherapist to understand where this condition comes from and if physiotherapy manipulation can help for your specific vertigo as there is different causes of vertigo.

What are symptoms of balance disorder?

Vestibular conditions that affect balance can be manifested in different ways:

  • Vertigo
  • Feeling dizzy
  • Imbalance
  • Unstable posture
  • Unstable vision, blurred vision
  • Feeling disoriented
  • Feeling off-balance
  • Falling or stumbling

Sense of imbalance can lead to digestive troubles such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhea. Anxiety and fear can also be induced, which may affect daily and professional activities.

What are the main balance disorders?

There are many vestibular disorders, but the most common conditions that vestibular physiotherapists treat are the following:

  • Vertigo BPPV in London
  • Vestibular Neuritis in London
  • Menière’s disease in London
  • Kinetosis in London
  • Labyrinthitis in London

Balance disorder can also be a main symptom in phobias such as agoraphobia or acrophobia, and the main reason for repetitive falls in elderly people.

What is vertigo BPPV?

BPPV is the term for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. BPPV is defined by tiny calcium fragments – normally located in the inner ear, that come loose and move from one part to another area where they shouldn’t be. The event sends the wrong message to the brain which thinks your body is moving when you are not. This will cause dizziness, alongside the sensation of spinning and swaying.

More info on Vertigo and BPPV Treatment

What is Vestibular Neuritis?

Vestibular neuritis is often related to a viral infection causing inflammation of the nerve that relates sound and balance information from the inner ear to the brain.

What is Menière’s Disease?

Menière’s disease is most often caused by a virus or an allergy that brings too much fluid to the inner ear. The event brings sudden vertigo, ringing or buzzing sensation in the ear as well as pressure and sometimes hearing loss, which can be temporary or permanent depending on the gravity of the disease.

What is Kinetosis?

Kinetosis is the technical term for motion sickness.

What is Labyrinthitis?

Labyrinthitis is an infection in the inner ear that is caused by the inflammation of the labyrinth, located deep in the inner ear. Common symptoms are dizziness, vertigo, ear pain, ear pressure, nausea, fever and pus or fluid coming out of the ear.

What can vestibular physiotherapy do to treat vertigo and balance disorders?

Vestibular rehabilitation is always tailored to each patient following a thorough assessment of their symptoms, medical background and pathology. Our vestibular physiotherapist will target the treatment plan towards helping the patient overcome their vertigo and dizziness, and as well encourage the central nervous system to compensate for the deficient vestibular sensor.

Our vestibular physiotherapist can help with various aspects of balance disorders:

  • Help with the perception of space, body movements and position
  • Help with head and eye movements
  • Help with posture
  • Help with oculomotor reflexes and ocular proprioception
  • Help with imbalance when standing and walking
  • Help with walking
  • Lifestyle advice
  • Fall prevention

In cases of vertigo BPPV, our vestibular physiotherapist can also help with manual techniques to reposition the loose crystals in the inner ear, which is the main cause for dizziness and vertigo.

Is vestibular physio rehabilitation a long process?

Vertigo treatment with vestibular physiotherapy will take more or less time depending on how serious your vertigo condition is. This is why our vestibular physio will go through a meticulous assessment in order to understand your vestibular disorder and what causes it.

Their personalised vertigo treatment program will target many aspects of the vestibular disorder and while some patients can be treated in just a few sessions, others may need a few weeks or months in order to overcome their vertigo efficiently. Regular sessions are key to a good vestibular rehabilitation.
