It is essential to treat imbalance arising from a vestibular (inner ear) issue with a customised approach. Everyone develops their own coping strategies when imbalance occurs and these strategies may or may not be helpful! Customised vestibular rehabilitation exercise programs are designed for home practise according to the difficulties and needs of each client. The program is altered accordingly depending on progress, one step at a time.
See me speaking to Rupal Rajani about vestibular rehabilitation here.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. You may have ben told that "you have crystals loose in your ear"!
BPPV is a common vestibular condition where calcium crystals have come loose within the balance system in the inner ear causing dizziness in certain head positions such as turning over in bed, looking up/down or leaning the head back (for example in the dentists chair or at the hairdressers).
