Vestibular Rehabilitation Initial Assessment

VR uses exercise therapy to strengthen the balance system. During the initial session you will be asked information about your balance problem and then asked to perform simple everyday tasks and movements to assess the condition. You will then be given specific exercises to follow at home to alleviate symptoms or you may be offered a Particle Repositioning Treatment.

Particle Repositioning Manoeuvre

Approx. 60 mins £70

PRM treats Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vesrtigo (BPPV) which is caused by small crystals found in the inner ear that have dislodged and become stuck in the wrong place within the ear causing dizzyness. Treatment involves the patient lying down whilst the audiologist gently moves the patients head in to specific positions to move the crystals.

Hearing Test


Pure Tone Audiometry is used to test the hearing; the patient places special headphones over their ears and then is asked to press a button when they hear a tone. Different tones will be played through the headphones and the response of the patient is recorded to assess their hearing and to give more information about the type of condition they may be suffering from.
