What Is the Vestibular System?

Our vestibular system helps us balance. The peripheral vestibular system is found in our inner ear and the central vestibular system is found in our brain. These systems detect how our body is moving through space and send this information to our brain where it is combined with information from our eyes, bones, muscles and joints. Our brain can then decide what it needs to do to keep us balanced as we move through a variety of environments and tasks in our day.

What Are Vestibular Conditions?

If you are experiencing dizziness, a sensation of disequilibrium or difficulties balancing you may have something going on with your vestibular system. After a concussion, it can also be common to experience ongoing symptoms including dizziness and imbalance which might indicate that your vestibular system is involved.

 

Some common Vestibular Disorders include:

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

Vestibular Neuritis

Unilateral/Bilateral Vestibular Hypofunction or Loss

Post-Concussion Syndrome

Meniere’s Disease (Endolymphatic Hydrops)

Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (MdDS)

Vestibular Migraine (Migraine Associated Vertigo)

Cervicogenic Dizziness/Cervical Vertigo

Acoustic Neuroma

Dizziness and Imbalance following a stroke (CVA)

Dehiscence or Perilymphatic Fistulas

Ototoxicity

For helpful information on these different types of conditions visit vestibular.org.

What Can a Physiotherapist Do To Help?

Physiotherapists with specialized training in Vestibular Rehabilitation can help you improve your dizzy symptoms and balance. This usually requires you to work together on an individualized exercise program. Since many vestibular conditions are also associated with fatigue and require you to scale back your day-to-day activities, physiotherapists can also help guide your successful return to work/play/hobbies etc.

What To Expect at the Initial Assessment:

Pre-Assessment Questionnaires

Allow us to better understand how you have been coping and how your dizziness impacts your day-to-day life.

History

We can best figure out what might be causing your dizziness by asking you questions about your dizziness and other symptoms.

Assessment:

  • Assessment of your posture and ability to move your head and neck
  • Neurological screen
  • Testing your eye movements and how they work together with head and body movements
  • Positional testing for BPPV
  • Gait and balance assessment

Treatment

  • Dedicated, one-on-one treatment.
  • Some conditions such as BPPV can be treated within a couple of treatment sessions.
  • Other conditions will require your participation in regular exercises, activity modification and time.
  • Education on your condition and influencing factors are key to helping your recovery.

How to Prepare

  • The assessment can often provoke symptoms so it may be helpful for you to be accompanied to the appointment by someone who can help get you home safely if you feel dizzy. 
  • If you have been to other medical providers to address your dizziness, please bring the results of any testing they have done.
  • If you have been prescribed any medications to help with your dizziness please write them down so you can inform us.
  • If your insurance requires a doctor’s referral in order to cover Physiotherapy, obtain a referral so you can get the treatment covered.

Calgary’s Finest: Meet Our Vestibular Physiotherapist

Amanda achieved her Bachelors of Science in Biological Sciences at University of Calgary and her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta. She was born and raised in Calgary, but is now returning to us after spending the last 6 years in Toronto where she had many opportunities to work and learn in mentorship rich environments.

Amanda has always had an interest in neurology and the brain’s ability to adapt after injury which led to her becoming a trained vestibular therapist. She has years of experience helping people with vestibular conditions as well as helping people return to activity post-concussion. Amanda has also taken courses in IMS Dry Needling, manual therapy and Functional Movement Assessment and enjoys using these techniques to help her patients recover from their injuries.

A few years into her career, Amanda chose to further pursue her interests in neurology and started working at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Centre in Toronto. She is an NDT Certified therapist with a breadth of experience working with patients across the age spectrum with a variety of neurological disorders as well as individuals post traumatic brain injury and stroke. Now that she is back in Calgary, she continues to use this skillset at the Alberta Children’s Hospital.

Regardless of age, ability and injury Amanda feels strongly about placing the patient at the center of their care and facilitating each individual’s return to the meaningful parts of their life. For Amanda, some of these meaningful parts include rock climbing, hiking, skiing, travel and spending time with her cat Mickey.
