Common conditions we treat
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV is the most common form of vertigo, and results in sharp and acute dizziness brought on by movement. It is caused by a dysfunction in the vestibular apparatus, a series of canals located inside the ear, which includes a canal of tiny crystals of calcium carbonate. BPPV occurs when some of the crystals escape from their normal chamber and get into one or more of the other ear canals. Vestibular rehab therapists are trained in treating the symptoms of BPPV.
Dizziness-and-balanceDizziness and balance issues can include vertigo, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), nausea, light-headedness, vision issues, motion sensitivity and sensitivity to crowds. They can severely impact quality of life if left untreated. Vestibular rehabilitation can help improve symptoms.
Knee pain can be caused by bursitis, a torn tendon, ACL tear or injury and overuse. It is most frequently the result of osteoarthritis. Physiotherapy can help speed recovery.
Low back pain is one of the most common patient complaints. It can result from arthritis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, sciatica, injury or overuse. An assessment from a physiotherapist or chiropractor can help provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.
Muscles sprains and strains can result from sport or motor vehicle injuries, overuse or common activity. They can range to mild, moderate to severe requiring more intensive intervention. Physiotherapy and massage therapy can help speed recovery.
Neck pain can result from poor posture, injury like whiplash, infection in the lymph nodes or throat, or a herniated disc. Physiotherapy, massage therapy or chiropractic treatment can help improve mobility and pain.
Complications following surgery can include pain, limited mobility, numbness and emotional issues. An assessment from a qualified physiotherapy along with a detailed treatment plan can help to alleviate post-surgery challenges.
Vertigo is the sensation of feeling off-balance, dizzy or that world around you is spinning. It is most often caused by an inner ear imbalance. An assessment and treatment program from a trained vestibular therapist may help.
