Advance Physiotherapist, Oliver Chang, is highly experienced in assessing and treating Vestibular dysfunction – including vertigo, dizziness and/or imbalance.
The vestibular system includes the vestibular apparatus situated in the inner ear and the brain that processes this information.
The vestibular system’s main function is to maintain balance and gaze stability. When an injury or condition disturbs the vestibular system, it can cause symptoms such as vertigo, dizziness, spinning, staggering, light-headedness, imbalance, falls and motion sensitivity. These symptoms can affect your daily activities and quality of life.
Vestibular rehabilitation includes a full vestibular subjective and objective assessment, and treatment according to the results. Vestibular rehabilitation is scientifically based and has shown to be highly effective in treating vertigo.
Common conditions treated include:
- Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)

- Vestibular Migraine
