Balance rehabilitation is undertaken if you have been diagnosed with a known vestibular disorder such as a vestibular hypofunction, or have known stable menieres disease.
The appointment consists of taking your medical history, filling out questionnaires and undertaking a series of tests which will assess your everyday balance. This will inform us if there are any exercises that maybe of assistance. It is not unusual to need 5 or 6 appointments to be clear of all balance issues. The initial assessment is one hour long and follow-up appointments thereafter are 45 minutes. All balance rehabilitation appointments currently only run in our Goring-by-Sea clinic.
Balance Rehabilitation appointments can only be made if a referral letter has been received by either a GP or ENT Consultant. After every appointment a report is written and sent back to the referring GP or ENT consultant.
