Vestibular Conditions We Treat


Vestibular Conditions We Treat

There are many conditions of the peripheral (inner ear) and central (brain) vestibular systems that can cause dizziness, vertigo, or imbalance.

Once we determine which condition is causing your symptoms, the good news is that many of these conditions are very treatable and respond well to Vestibular Rehabilitation.

Our Treatments Include

Aging, Dizziness and Imbalance

Dizziness is often the most common reason for an adult over the age of 65 to visit their doctor or to be hospitalised.

Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction

A Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (BVH) can also been known as a Bilateral Vestibular Loss (BVL) or Bilateral Vestibular Weakness (BVW).


BPPV is a condition of the inner ear which can cause intense episodes of vertigo, a false sensation of movement, like spinning.

Concussion & Traumatic Brain Injury

Concussion is a mild head injury that occurs after sustaining a blow to the head. It can also be termed a mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mildTBI).

Mal De Debarquement Syndrome

Mal De Debarquement Syndrome (MDDS) is a sense of imbalance and self-motion that most commonly occurs after disembarking from a long travel time on a boat or cruise ship, in a plane or in a car.

Meniere’s Disease

Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that results in hearing and balance related symptoms. Meniere’s disease involves the development of endolymphatic hydrops.

Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD)

PPPD is a problem that causes dizziness and/ or unsteadiness for 3 months or more. Symptoms are present most days and can increase and decrease throughout the day.

Stroke and Dizziness

While most strokes cause weakness on one side of the body, some strokes affect areas of the brain called the cerebellum or brainstem, and the symptoms can be quite different.

Vestibular Migraine

Vestibular migraine is a type of migraine where you experience episodes of dizziness or imbalance lasting from minutes to days with or without an actual headache.

Vestibular Neuritis and Labyrinthitis

Inflammation of the inner ear system is most commonly caused by a virus but can also be the result of a bacterial infection, head injury, extreme stress, an allergy or reaction to certain medications.

Vestibular Schwannoma / Acoustic Neuroma

A Vestibular Schwannoma, also known as an Acoustic Neuroma is a slow growing, non- cancerous or benign tumour in the vestibular nerve.
