Physiotherapy for Balance and Dizziness Disorders
Balance and dizziness disorders are quite common. There are various approaches available for targeted and quick management of these disorders and vestibular physiotherapy is one such valuable approach. This talk will focus on the different systems in the body that contribute to balance and how vestibular physiotherapy can help manage balance and dizziness disorders.
Speaker: Registered physiotherapist Neha Mankar, MPTh (Neurosciences)
Neha graduated from MUHS in India in 2009. Her keen interest in neurological rehabilitation encouraged her to go on to pursue a master’s degree in neurological rehabilitation and she has almost 8 years of clinical experience in this field. Neha started working with NeuroMotion Physiotherapy in July 2016, venturing into the field of vestibular rehabilitation and concussions. A desire to assist clients with dizziness and vertigo – as well as share her knowledge – is Neha’s inspiration for this talk.
