Offering Vestibular Rehabilitation Physiotherapy in London Bridge

My Specialism

I work in a highly specialised branch of physiotherapy called vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT). This is the area that deals with dizziness and balance disorders.

These disorders can manifest for a myriad of reasons, ranging from inner ear problems to head injuries, neurological conditions, and even psychological factors, and I have expertise in assessing and treating these, with a particular expertise in the psychology of balance disorders and rehabilitation of chronic dizziness (e.g. ‘PPPD’).

  • Age related vestibular loss and falls

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)

My approach

I’m passionate about helping individuals regain their balance and improve their quality of life through pragmatic, practical, patient-centred, and evidence-based interventions.

Evidence-based practice

In the world of healthcare, we know that one size does not fit all. That’s why I prioritise evidence-based practice in vestibular rehabilitation therapy.

Patient-Centred Care

Understanding how individuals think, feel, and behave in the context of their vestibular challenges is paramount to achieving positive outcomes.
