What is Vestibular Rehabilitation?

Vestibular rehabilitation is a type of physiotherapy that treats vestibular disorders. The symptoms of these disorders can include dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, and other symptoms that affect daily activities significantly.

At The Physio Shop, we provide comprehensive vestibular physiotherapy services to help you regain your balance and improve your quality of life. Our vestibular physiotherapist, Issey, is dedicated to addressing vestibular disorders and restoring your equilibrium through personalized treatment plans tailored to your unique needs.
