If you are feeling dizzy, unsteady or like the world is spinning, it is very likely that you have a problem with component parts of your vestibular system. A vestibular assessment identifies if you have vestibular dysfunction and rehabilitation addresses the dysfunction.
The clinic runs during the week and no GP referral is required. We do our best to prioritise urgent cases to avoid unnecessary discomfort. As well as being a diagnostic clinic, the Vestibular clinic can help with:
- BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo)
- Unilateral vestibular dysfunction (Labyrinthitis, Vestibular Neuritis, Meniere’s Disease, surgical or chemical (Gentamicin) ablation of the labyrinth, Acoustic neuroma (vestibular schwannoma), petrous bone fracture, Ramsay Hunt Syndrome)
- Bilateral vestibular dysfunction (Gentamicin Ototoxicity, idiopathic bilateral vestibular loss, sequential viral neuritis, aging, other rare syndromes; Cogan’s, Susac’s)
- Brain stem and cerebellar stroke or tumour, MS, skull # and TBI
- Migrainous vertigo
