Take control of the effects of dizziness, vertigo and poor balance!

Do you or a family member experience spinning, nausea, brain fog, swaying and poor balance, as well as light headedness? Do your children get car sickness?
Does it affect your confidence in moving around, social interactions, fear of falling or stop you from working?
You don’t realise how important your body awareness and balance system is until something happens to it, like an inner ear infection, head injury, low blood pressure, medication interaction or displacement of tiny crystals in the ear.
While these symptoms occur in about 50% people over the age of 65, unfortunately they can occur in younger people as well. The impact on a person’s life can be significant, often contributing to reduced sporting and social interaction because they feel less confident with their balance and movements.
If your world is literally turning upside down, or feels unstable, and you want to regain control, then do get in touch with us.
At Brain Hub – a clinic dedicated to the management of dizziness and concussion – we see many children and adults with ongoing symptoms and poor quality of life, having experienced conditions such as BPPV (benign positional paroxysmal vertigo), vestibular migraine, motion sickness, Meniere’s, inner ear infection, Mal De Debarquement Syndrome, and others.
Success outcomes always start with accurate assessment. To be able to objectively measure, benchmark and review your progress is vital with dizziness care. Our clinic offers the latest diagnostic testing technology to gain a better understanding of balance, vestibular and brain function, thus guiding us with therapy. Some of the technology we offer includes:

  • Heart Rate Variability – assist to identify autonomic response to stress
  • Computerised Balance Testing – measures body awareness and postural control
  • Videonystagmography (VNG) – traces eye movements which have an impact on reading, writing and attention
  • Video Head Impulse Test (VHIT) – measures function of the vestibular system
  • Computerised neurocognitive testing – measures visual and verbal memory, reaction time and alertness
  • QEEG Brain Mapping – measures electrical activity of the brain, connectivity and biomarkers of concussion
  • HUMAC Balance System – helps to improve body awareness, balance and sport performance
  • Neuro-Sensorimotor Integrator – helps improve attention, eye movements, hand–eye coordination, balance and cognitive function
  • Nutritional, dietary and lifestyle advice

Once we have completed our comprehensive assessment, we tailor an individual neuro-rehabilitation program based on your goals and examination findings, aimed at improving symptoms and function.
