STATE OF THE ART VESTICAM GOGGLES
Vertigo / Dizziness
Vertigo is a sensation of whirling/spinning which can cause a loss of balance. Vertigo can be caused by a range of conditions.
Our physiotherapists use state of the art Vesticam goggles to diagnose and treat vertigo.
Once the reason for your vertigo has been determined, your physiotherapist will develop a treatment plan. This may include performing manoeuvres to reposition displaced bicarbonate crystals, vestibular rehabilitation, or treatment for balance and/or neck/postural disorders.

HEADACHES CAN BE CAUSED BY NECK MISALIGNMENT
Headaches can be caused by a number of factors, including referral from the cervical spine known as cervicogenic headaches.
Your physiotherapist will perform a thorough assessment of your neck position, general posture and your joint alignment to determine whether your headaches are caused from your neck.
Cervicogenic headaches often improve with physiotherapy treatment.
Pre and Post-Op Physiotherapy
Pre-operative physiotherapy helps to prepare patients for surgery, thereby reducing the risks and complications, helping to accelerate recovery.
Post-operative physiotherapy is the post-surgical care following discharge from hospital. This helps re-establish muscular strength and joint function.
Our physiotherapists will perform a comprehensive assessment and provide a detailed treatment plan which supports the patient and surgeon’s goals.
This will include a combination of hands-on treatment and exercise programmes that improve range of motion and coordination and strength.
Our aim is to help you get back to optimum health after surgery.
We offer pre and post-operative rehabilitation for the following areas:
- Abdominal: hernia repair, caesarean, prostate, bladder
- Gynaecological: pelvic floor, prolapse
