Physiotherapy for dizziness, vertigo and balance disorders

Why you might need it

At Spire Norwich Hospital we understand symptoms of dizziness, vertigo or loss of balance may significantly affect your day -to-day life. Our Vestibular Physiotherapy Service offers high standards of care and attention which are reflected in the expertise and treatment provided by our specialist physiotherapists.

Assessment and treatment

Our specialist Vestibular Physiotherapist Service aims to improve your symptoms, helping to restore your confidence and return you to your day-to-day activities. We offer treatment for a wide range of conditions relating to dizziness and balance disorders. Typically conditions can be improved with appropriate treatment and rehabilitation, which may include specific rehabilitation techniques, exercises and balance training. We pride ourselves on treating our patients, not just their symptoms. Your treatment is planned and tailored to address your specific needs. We will take the time to understand your situation at home and, if appropriate, at work to maximise your recovery potential as your symptoms may be different within different environments and situations.

Preparing for treatment

At your first appointment a detailed medical history will be taken, followed by a thorough assessment of your condition. This enables us to establish your current level of function, from which we can measure your improvement. You will receive expert advice and treatment with a bespoke programme tailored to your individual needs. With your consent, our physiotherapists can also refer you to a consultant and can arrange access, if necessary, to our diagnostic facilities including X-ray, CT and MRI scanning. Your physiotherapist can liaise with your GP or consultant and provide them with a detailed discharge summary at the end of your treatment.
