Effective Treatment of Dizziness and Reducing Fall Risk

Treatment of acute and chronic dizziness, Fall Risk Assessment and Fall Minimisation Programs on the Northside of Brisbane

  • Many people, once having experienced a bout of dizzines for whatever reason, will often develop a fear of falling, even when the actual dizzy sensations have subsided.  Vestibular Rehabilitation is very effective in addressing this phenomenon and enables the person to regain their confidence and independence.  
  • As we become older, our joints sometimes lose some flexibility and/or become painful, muscles weaken, eyesight deteriorates; all these factors combine to make us less steady on our feet and increase the risk of falls.  Our Musculoskeletal physiotherapy will help address joint pain and weakness and combined with balance retraining techniques, we can help significantly reduce the risk of falls.


As you get older, back pain and arthritis can stop you from participating in activities you’ve always enjoyed. Physiotherapy treatments can help by working on problem muscle and joint conditions, so that you're physically at your best. Our team provides you with detailed instructions and exercises that can be completed at home.  That way, we can minimise the disruptions that muscle and joint conditions can cause to your life, helping you stay active so that you can continue to live your life to the fullest.

Treatment for Dizziness in Brisbane

Physiotherapy for all ages

Over the years, James has treated patients ranging in age from 6 months to 96 years old.  Physio doesn't cure people; what it does is, by decreasing pain and reducing imbalance and promoting posture, joint movement and muscle strength, it enables the body to heal itself to the maximum amount possible. Generally speaking, the sooner we can see you after your problem presents, the faster the results.  However, even if you have been 'putting up' with a pain or problem for years, there  is a good chance that we can help.  A common phrase I hear from people I treat is "If only I had come to you a long time ago" and "this is the best I have felt in years". 

Even if you have tried physio before, it is worth a phone call to speak with me to see if I can help.
