If you are running late, please call our office to see if treatment is possible. Depending on the physiotherapist's schedule you may not be able to be seen if you are more than 5- 10 minutes late. This is to prevent other clients, who are on time, from waiting.
During the assessment, you may be required to perform certain manoeuvres that may provoke your dizziness and may make you nauseous. If you are concerned, we recommend that you take anti-emetic medication about 30 minutes prior to your appointment.
It is also advised that you have someone else drive you home from your appointment.
Physiotherapy may be partially covered by Medicare providing you have been referred by your GP under a Chronic Disease Management Plan. This plan allows you to claim a Medicare rebate for a maximum 5 services per patient per calendar. Please speak with your GP for more information and/or to see if you are entitled to this plan.
Our physiotherapists are trained to recognise, assess and treat patients that are suffering from vertigo from a vestibular origin such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuronitis/labyrinthitis and following acoustic neuroma resection.
