Our Vestibular Rehabilitation Clinic prides itself upon a Multi-Disciplinary approach to your care. The Clinics will always be extended for patient's needs.

Many Vestibular patients will suffer poor stability problems and anxiety even after treatment. Once you have completed your Rehabilitation we offer a service of Pilates, Yoga, Relaxation sessions and Massage to address these problems to help you to return to a full and active normal life. We also have an expert Neurological Physiotherapist on the team to whom we can refer you if the initial assessment flags up any suggestions of neurologiacal deficits.

Our Physiotherapists are Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and are regulated by the Health Care Professions Council.

Steve  Oakley is the Clinical Lead  and will undertake a detailed assessment of your Vestibular System on your initial visit. If you suffer from BPPV you should be alleviated of your signs and symptoms  within one treatment. You will then be advised to attend for one further short follow up appointment in order to ensure that the condition has been fully resolved. 

A personalised exercise regime will be designed to allow maximal compensation for any other Vestibular Disorders. Any prescribed exercises will be accessible under the Patient Resource tab to ensure that you do not forget what you have been taught.
