Vestibular

A Vestibular Disorder is any condition which affects the inner ear and brain. Also, it can affect your balance and eye movements. The symptoms you can experience if you have an Vestibular Disorder are listed below:

  • Dizziness
  • Vertigo
  • Vision Disturbance
  • Disequilibrium
  • Imbalance
  • Hearing Changes
  • Cognitive and/or Psychological Changes
  • Headaches
  • Nausea/Vomiting

The Physiotherapist here at our Blackfalds Physiotherapy Clinic -- Karina Dennis, can treat Vestibular Disorders. She will review your medical history, symptoms and then conduct a physical exam to determine the source of the Vertigo. The Physiotherapist may use video goggles, to see how your eyes respond to certain types of tests. Your eye movement, inner ear function, neck mobility and gait/balance will be assessed too.
