Benefits of Concussion and Vestibular Physiotherapy

A concussion is a complex injury that can have many different symptoms. Our in-depth and detailed assessment at our clinic in Port Moody includes a symptom report, cognitive screening, balance assessment, exertion therapy assessment, and a vestibule-ocular screening –  using the latest infrared goggle technology.   

Vestibular rehabilitation focuses on improving the relationship between your brain, eyes, inner ear, muscles, and nerves, post-concussion. Through our multi-faceted and accurate approach, we are able to improve patient care and treat many symptoms including vertigo, dizziness, and feeling imbalanced.

Common Disorders Treated:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) – vertigo caused by crystals that are out of place in your inner ear balance system
  • Meniere’s Disease – Vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in ears), and hearing loss that is due to intermittent swelling in your inner ear
  • Vestibular Neuritis or Labyrinthitis – Dizziness and/or hearing loss due to infection in your inner ear
  • Acoustic Neuroma (vestibular schwannoma) – a tumor affecting your acoustic (hearing) and vestibular nerves
  • Labyrinthine Infarction – Dizziness and/or hearing loss due to a clot blocking blood flow to your inner ear structures
  • Post-Stroke and Central Disorders – Brain-related causes of dizziness 
  • Visual Vertigo – Dizziness provoked by visually-complex patterns in your environment
  • Post-Concussive Syndrome (PCS) – Caused by trauma to your brain
