What Is The Vestibular System?

The vestibular system is located in the inner ears. It is a connection between your ears and brain, and it helps us maintain our balance and posture by stabilising our head and body when we walk, stand up, or react to any motion.


The inner ear acts like a sensor and records head motion and sends a signal to the brain. The brain then analyses the information received from the vestibular system and other sensory organs like eyes, ears, and hands and sends out an impulse to the body to react to a situation.


If a disease or injury affects the vestibular system, you will not be able to react appropriately to situations. Your hearing and sight might also be affected, and you may experience dizziness and difficulty in maintaining balance.

Symptoms Of Vestibular Disorder

The symptoms of vestibular disorder vary from person to person. Some common symptoms are:

  • Feeling of dizziness

  • Feeling off-balance while standing

  • Feeling as if the world is spinning around you

  • Feeling as if the world is floating

  • Falling or stumbling

  • Vision issues (blurred and shaky vision, double vision)

  • Difficulty in focusing

  • Disorientation

  • Headache

  • Brain fog (difficulty concentrating and mild memory loss)

 

Nausea, diarrhea, anxiety, vomiting, fear, and changes in heart rhythm are some less common symptoms of vestibular disorder.


If you are experiencing some of the above symptoms, you should consult your doctor. He will prescribe you the most suitable course of action after proper diagnosis.

What Is Vestibular Physiotherapy?

Vestibular physiotherapy is a type of physiotherapy that is designed to help people who have vestibular disorders. It involves a series of manual head exercises that are designed to reduce symptoms of the vestibular disorder such as vertigo, dizziness, imbalance, visual issues, light-headedness, and sudden falls. 


When the vestibular system is affected because of an injury or a disease, the brain gets confused in its assessment of situations and sends out confusing signals to the organs. That is why patients suffering from vestibular disorders experience dizziness and light-headedness.


The primary idea behind vestibular physiotherapy in Singapore is to train the brain to rely more on other sources of signals and improve balance. This is achieved by performing various exercises.

Is Vestibular Physiotherapy Effective?

Vestibular physiotherapy has proven to be a successful treatment plan for patients suffering from vestibular disorders and experiencing dizziness and balance issues. In many cases, patients have experienced significant improvement in dizziness and balance issues, and in some cases, the problem has completely vanished after performing vestibular physiotherapy. 


Vestibular physiotherapy is the only treatment option for minor symptoms. However, with advanced symptoms, pre and post-operative treatment methods are frequently prescribed.

What Conditions Are Treated With Vestibular Physiotherapy?

Vestibular physiotherapy has proven to treat a range of vestibular diseases. Some of them are:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

  • Vestibular Neuritis/Labyrinthitis

  • Unilateral Vestibular Hypofunction (UVH)

  • Vestibular Migraine

  • Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD)

  • Mal de Debarquement (MdDS)

  • Cervicogenic Dizziness

  • Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS)

  • Meniere’s disease

  • Neurological conditions (i.e. stroke, traumatic brain injury)
