Our vertigo & dizziness specialists in Newcastle offer physiotherapy treatment to help you regain balance and live life to the fullest. Discover how in our latest blog.

Feeling off-balance and dizzy can be a frightening and disruptive experience. It can significantly impact your daily life, making even basic tasks like showering a challenge. The good news is, physiotherapy can offer effective treatment for vertigo and dizziness, helping you regain balance and get back to living your life to the fullest.

Understanding Vertigo & Dizziness

Vertigo and dizziness are sensations of spinning or light-headedness. These feelings can stem from problems with any of the three systems that contribute to our sense of balance:

·         Inner ear (vestibular system): This system provides information about head movement and body position.

·         Vision: Our eyes play a crucial role in maintaining balance by sending information about the environment around us.

·         Proprioception: This refers to our body's awareness of its position in space, detected by sensory receptors in our muscles and joints.

The Role of Physiotherapy

Here at Gosforth Physio & Wellness, our specialist physiotherapists in Newcastle are highly skilled in treating vertigo and dizziness. We take a holistic approach, addressing the underlying cause of your body’s imbalance. We also use vestibular rehabilitation, which includes specific exercises that retrain your brain to interpret signals from your inner ear, eyes, and body more effectively, as well as balance retraining.

There are a number of benefits of physiotherapy for vertigo and dizziness, including:

  • Reduced dizziness & vertigo episodes: Physiotherapy can significantly reduce the frequency and severity of dizziness episodes.
  • Improved balance & stability: By enhancing your balance system, physiotherapy helps you feel more confident and secure on your feet.
  • Non-invasive treatment: Physiotherapy offers a safe and effective alternative to medication, often with fewer side effects.
  • Long-term management: Physiotherapy can equip you with strategies to prevent future episodes of dizziness and manage your condition effectively.
