The vestibular system is the first system in the body to be fully developed.

The job of this fluid-filled structure in the inner ear is to tell the brain about movements of the head and to help keep your balance. Most people don't even know they have a vestibular system - until something goes wrong with it!

Symptoms of a vestibular disorder can include:

  • Vertigo

  • Dizziness

  • Imbalance

  • Nausea

  • Light-headedness

  • Motion sensitivity

  • Visual difficulties, particularly while moving

Vestibular rehabilitation (VR) can help with a variety of vestibular problems, including Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), and the reduced function on one or both sides associated with Meniere's Disease, labyrinthitis and vestibular neuritis. VR can also help with an acute loss of vestibular function following certain surgeries, or post-concussion.

Inner Level's director, Katherine Forch, is a certified competent vestibular therapist. She enjoys challenging cases, and is one of Auckland's more experienced vestibular clinicians.
