Dizziness and Vertigo

Physio can be very effective for treating symptoms of dizziness and vertigo. Dizziness that is worse with movement is often caused by benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is an inner ear (vestibular) condition that occurs when small calcium carbonate particles break loose within the inner ear.

How do we treat Dizziness and Vertigo?

Assessment: your Physio will have a chat with you about your condition. They will take a medical history, review your symptoms and may do various tests and measures to ensure they have a good understanding of your issue.

Treatment of acute symptoms: 

  • Repositioning techniques.  The Epley manoeuvre is one of the commonly used repositioning techniques used to successfully treat BPPV.
  • Home exercises may also be given to continue treatment at home
