We understand that if you are struggling with your balance or suffer from dizzy spells, it can affect your confidence. Our team of physiotherapists at Spire Parkway Hospital near Birmingham can provide the treatment you need.
Conditions treated include:
- Balance difficulties
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)
- Loss of confidence
Causes of vertigo
These problems may be caused by a disturbance of the inner ear which can be triggered by infection, inflammation or degeneration. Symptoms may be accompanied with hearing loss, and are referred to as vestibular problems which describe the part of the inner ear that is affected.
At your initial appointment, a detailed history will be taken, followed by a thorough assessment. You will receive expert advice and treatment and will be provided with a personal recovery programme.
Our physiotherapists work closely with consultants who can arrange x-ray, CT and MRI scanning if appropriate.
During, or immediately after your physiotherapy session, your symptoms may increase temporarily. This is perfectly normal and essential for appropriate rehabilitation. It is therefore advisable that you do not drive yourself to the initial consultation.
