Dizziness, vertigo and balance symptoms affect 50% of adults at some time in their lives. 5 – 10% of all patients visiting their general Physician are complaining of symptoms relating to dizziness, vertigo and balance
(Yardley L.et.al. Effectiveness of Primary Care – Based Vestibular Rehabilitation for Chronic Dizziness. Ann Int Med, 2004, Oct. 141(6): 598-605)

If this includes you, we have Vestibular Physiotherapy treatment available that can help at our Newmarket location.

Vertigo and dizziness must be one of the most disconcerting symptoms out there for people;

Lying on the couch with your world spinning literally out of your control.

This alone can cause anyone anxiety.

If you are experiencing symptoms of dizziness like vertigo, chronic imbalance, nausea, lightheadedness you should always see your Physician before, or concurrently with your Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapist.  We are primary care Physiotherapists and will direct you to your Physician as necessary as well.  However, vertigo and dizziness can have an onset stemming from many different areas in the body.  And requires careful and skillful assessment.

For a diagnosis of BPPV, or vestibular loss, or cervicogenic, or gaze stabilisation issues, or balance and proprioceptive issues.  Vestibular Rehabilitation is very effective.

After a vestibular assessment your Vestibular Physiotherapist will better determine the timeline for which your rehabilitative process may take. However, in general, individuals correctly diagnosed with BPPV will see a reduction in their dizziness after 1-2 treatments. Other conditions can take upwards of 3 months. Again this is a case by case variance, please discuss with your Vestibular Physiotherapist.

As always we are here to provide Physiotherapy services to the people of East Gwillimbury, Newmarket, Bradford, Holland Landing, Sharon, Queesville, Aurora and the surrounding York Region.
