Referrals

The Dizziness & Balance Disorders Centre is dedicated to patients who do have or think they have vertigo, dizziness and unsteadiness.

Private patients do not require a referral from a medical practitioner; you may be self referred or referred by an Allied Health Professional.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

The American Academy of Otolaryngology practice and advocacy guidelines position statement regarding Vestibular Rehabilitation is as follows:

“Vestibular Rehabilitation is a scientifically based and clinically valid therapeutic modality for the treatment of persistent dizziness and postural instability due to incomplete compensation after peripheral vestibular or central nervous system injury. Vestibular rehabilitation is a valid form of therapy for dizziness and imbalance resulting from the medical or surgical treatment of vertigo disorders and for acute vertigo or persistent imbalance that may result from a variety of peripheral vestibular disorders.”
