May is Physiotherapy Month

There are a number of services that physiotherapists offer.  They can include urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, dizziness and balance as well as other issues.  We will be continuing to post a variety of issues through the month of May for Physiotherapy Month.

 

Dizziness and Balance Disorders can be treated with Vestibular Rehabilitation.  Trained physiotherapists and other health professionals can assess the causes of the dizziness.  Vestibular system disorders occur with head trauma and often occur after whiplash, degeneration of the vestibular system which occurs as we age, vestibular neuritis and/or labryinthitis which can be can be checked for via an audiologist or an ENT specialist, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s Disease, or acoustic neuroma.  Other causes can be cardiovascular, neurological, visual defects, or psychogenic dizziness.  All of these additional causes are investigated by your doctor.

Check for Vestibular Rehab at your local physiotherapy office.  It is helpful for recovery of concussion symptoms when you are left with dizziness issues.  More details under Services on our website.
