How Do You Start?
Prior to starting the class, we require you to attend an initial pre-assessment session with one of our Specialist Vestibular Physiotherapists to thoroughly assess your vestibular and balance impairments and identify specific strategies individualized to your needs.
Validated and objective measures will be utilized to identify specific areas of improvement and to track progress.
