Treatment for vertigo and dizziness: Physiotherapy!

Vertigo. Dizziness. 50% of people will deal with it at some point in their lives, and it’s the main reason people will go to see a doctor after the age of 60. Have you experienced either? Suffering with it now? Your first course of action is to go and see your GP, and if their diagnosis is that the problem stems from your vestibular apparatus (an organ in your inner ear), physiotherapy treatments might help balance you out.

There are lots of reasons that someone might get dizzy for time to time. However if rolling over in bed or tying your shoes makes you feel like the room is spinning, something is up. Symptoms like nausea or vomiting are also a bad sign. But don’t panic!!! We can help!!! For vertigo, the first physiotherapy treatment is about 88% effective, and after 3 the treatments are 98% effective. There’s no reason for you to continue to suffer.

If it’s not your vestibular apparatus that’s the problem, a neck injury can also lead to dizziness. Physiotherapy can also lead to relief from that. Tinnitus? Yep, another problem that physiotherapy can treat. It’s not just for sore backs or sports injuries people!
