Dizziness

Persistent dizziness and poor balance following an attack of vertigo or labryinthitis is debilitating and can persist for many months. This can be treated by specialist physiotherapy using a combination of specific exercises and manual therapy.

Balance problems and falls are common in older people. Falls can lead to loss of confidence and fractures causing disability and loss of independence. Falls can be prevented by physiotherapy to improve flexibility, strength, coordination and balance. There is good evidence that 85 year olds can improve their strength and balance significantly in a 6 week activity programme.

Gait and running analysis

A gait and running assessment includes a biomechanical video analysis of your legs from your pelvis to your toes.

This will identify the underlying cause of persistent and recurrent problems such as low back, hip, thigh, knee, ankle or foot pain particularly if this comes on after exercise such as walking, running or playing sport. It’s also beneficial if you undertake sport at high level and have an ache or pain in your back or lower limbs that is affecting your performance. We can use this technology to analyse technique for other sports too.
