Dizziness & Balance Issues. Don’t let dizziness become part of your daily routine.

Dizziness is a common symptom that can present for many reasons ranging from anxiety to side effects from taking multiple medications. With any new episode of dizziness, it is important to consult a health professional to work through the potential causes.

When other factors have been ruled out, dizziness that has a pattern of behaviour where movement or certain visual stimulus (fast-moving images, busy/colourful backgrounds) are triggers, the vestibular system (inner ear) can often be the cause.

The inner ear or vestibular apparatus in a set of organs which help us detect movement of our head and body. It works closely with our eyes and brain to process information about movement in order for us to stay balanced by making fine adjustments when needed.

Common causes of dizziness

The most common cause of dizziness due to vestibular issues is BPPV where small crystals that normally reside within the vestibular system drift into the wrong place. This often causes dizziness with movements such as lying down, getting up from and rolling in bed. The resulting vertigo can feel like the world is spinning and can be quite debilitating and/or sickening.

Thankfully, treatment can provide a quick change in your vestibular symptoms and help alleviate dizziness by carefully repositioning those crystals with specific maneuvers. Caitlyn have completed advanced training in treating these conditions to help you manage your dizziness.

If you’ve experienced dizziness, book an appointment with Caitlyn to remove the dizzies and keep you on your feet.

Target Physio Google Review

    5 star review  After suffering serious damage to my right knee due to a motorbike accident in 2008, I've struggled with many movements and forms of exercise. I've also been very particular with who I let work on my knee. I've been seeing Fiona for a few months now and I must say that my knee feels better now than it has in years!! Fiona has helped me regain some (still got a way to go yet) confidence in my own ability not to mention increased functional strength and flexibility. Highly recommend Fiona and the team at Target Physio.
