Balance Problems


Balance Problems

Physiotherapy plays a vital role in balance rehabilitation, offering interventions to address the underlying causes of balance problems and improve functional stability.

Maintaining balance is essential for everyday activities such as walking, standing, and reaching, yet balance issues can significantly impact quality of life. People who have balance problems may struggle with busy places, they might feel afraid or anxious in certain situations and eventually stop going out, or moving all together. Ultimately balance problems can lead to falls which can result in even more anxiety about moving and going out, not to mention causing injury.

Balance problems can arise from various factors, including musculoskeletal conditions, neurological disorders, vestibular dysfunction, and ageing. Common symptoms of balance problems may include dizziness, unsteadiness, feeling lightheaded, vertigo, and difficulty maintaining equilibrium. These symptoms can have a significant impact on mobility, independence, and overall well-being.

Maintaining or improving balance is crucial for individuals of all ages, as it enables safe and independent mobility and participation in daily activities.
Balance rehabilitation focuses on addressing underlying impairments, strengthening key muscles, improving proprioception (awareness of body position), and enhancing coordination to promote stability and reduce the risk of falls.

At Neurobility we understand how frightening falls and balance problems can be. As Neurological and Vestibular physiotherapists we have a deep understanding of the balance systems and how to rehabilitate them to improve balance and prevent falls. We can develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses specific impairments and maximises recovery potential. We have equipment in the clinic that can help with balance training, in particular our LiteGait system that allows us to challenge balance in a safe and controlled way to re-educate the balance strategies needed to keep people on their feet.

If you or a loved one is suffering with falls or balance problems, we would love to help! Contact us today to find out how we can help you and take the first step towards improved balance, function, and overall well-being.
