Vestibular Physiotherapy Burnaby

Expert Physio Vestibular Rehabilitation (including Vertigo)

Contrary to what you may be thinking about what physiotherapy can be beneficial for, there are many conditions where our experts can help enhance a person’s health. We don’t just provide treatments for injuries. The scope of what we can treat goes way beyond this, including treatments for dizziness, balance issues, and vertigo.

What Are Your Symptoms?

If you are experiencing dizzy spells, loss of balance, or blurry vision, your health care provider may have diagnosed you with a condition called vertigo. This sounds scary, and the symptoms are annoying, but it doesn’t mean that there is nothing that can be done about it.

Our physiotherapists here at Expert Physio have a great deal of experience in treating this condition. They have several different treatments that they can offer, and one of these may be vestibular rehabilitation.

What Is Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy?

Also known as balance retraining therapy is a combination use of the skills of our physiotherapists who have been specifically trained for this type of treatment. They will use a variety of metrics and specialized equipment to determine which techniques should be implemented as part of the treatment plan.

There will be specific goals set for you if this is the treatment of choice best suited for you. The goal will be to reduce the duration and intensity of your symptoms (including dizziness, balance issues, and vertigo).

This will help to improve your balance and reduce the effects it is having on your function. The purpose is to restore you to a better quality of life and give you back your independence.

The treatment can be comprised of a variety of techniques such as:

  • Techniques to reduce or eliminate vertigo (known as repositioning maneuvers)
  • Personalized Exercises for balance

Our Priorities Here at Expert Physio:


To reduce or eliminate your pain and discomfort.


To speed up the healing process and ensure proper healing.
