Vanessa Simpson is an Advanced Vestibular Physiotherapist here at Advance Rehab Centre and she would like to share her recent success story…
Beverley’s seven year battle with vertigo
Beverley was involved in a high speed car accident 7 years ago. She sustained a brain injury and multiple fractures. She had been dizzy ever since. She thought this was due to her brain injury and that there was nothing that she could do.
She found ARC after a recommendation and was thoroughly assessed by Vanessa Simpson. On further assessment, it was highlighted that Beverley was experiencing short episodes of intense vertigo (spinning sensation) when getting out of bed or when looking up to her kitchen cupboard. On careful examination it was discovered that Beverley had Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). After two treatments, Beverley’s symptoms had resolved and she no longer experiences vertigo. Beverley could not be happier, having lived with dizziness for 7 years.
Do you know anyone who suffers with dizziness? Physiotherapy could help and it’s important that you are assessment by a physiotherapist who specialises in vestibular conditions.
