What is the Vestibular System and why does it need Physio?


The vestibular system is a sensory system which helps keep your gaze and balance stable whenever head moves. It works together with the other senses like vision and joint position to help maintain your balance.

​It is made up of a peripheral system in your inner ear and also a central system in the brain

When something goes wrong with this system it can leave you feeling dizzy and offbalance with other associated symptoms including nausea, blurred or jumpy vision, headaches, brain fog and hearing changes.
