What our vestibular rehabilitation patients say...

I have seen a few different therapists at Cornerstone Physio and have found them all to be caring, thorough and knowledgeable. As someone with a complex vestibular condition, as well as periods of chronic pain, I have found incredible relief with their support and my quality of life has improved dramatically.

Jacqueline Foley
Burlington, Ontario

What our vestibular physiotherapy patients say...

I was battling vertigo for a number of months and my doctor suggested vestibular therapy. With Melissa, I felt seen, heard, and incredibly supported. Her positivity and knowledge were just the right combo that helped me stay committed and get results.  I am now a couple of months free of vertigo and know exactly what to do if it comes back. If you are struggling with vertigo, this is an incredible option.

What our vestibular therapy patients say...

When I came down with vertigo, my doctor knew immediately the best place to send me for diagnosis and treatment. Joon Nah is amazing at treating vertigo and the symptoms associated with it. The staff is always friendly and professional. This is definitely the right place to go for any physiotherapy.

What our vestibular rehabilitation patients say...

Absolutely amazing experience, and would recommend to anyone. All of the staff are very kind, and are willing to work with your schedule to accommodate you. I personally saw Giacomo for concussion symptoms, and he was extremely knowledgeable, supportive, and went above and beyond with his care, never rushing an appointment. I could not recommend him more for any type of physiotherapy.

I was experiencing severe vertigo and dizziness. My doctor suggested I go to Cornerstone Physio for help and I have made huge progress with therapy. I’m impressed with Giacomo’s knowledge and his passion. I appreciate the motivational push when I needed it. The staff are courteous and professional and made my visits very comfortable. I highly recommend this clinic.

Your 1st Session

Dizziness and concussion cases are complicated and unique to each patient. These types of impairments are often misdiagnosed or left undiagnosed. At Cornerstone we have created assessment procedures that capture the full scope of your condition and accurately categorize the root cause of your symptoms.

HISTORY OF YOUR PROBLEM: You’ll help us understand the full scope of your symptoms, the things that make it better and worse, your related medical history, and how it has impacted your life. You’ll need to tell us how and when your symptoms began and how your condition has changed over time.

NEUROLOGICAL TESTING: The majority of vestibular (and concussion) dysfunctions have relationships with your body’s nervous system. It is often appropriate to perform manual neurological tests to help zero in on the true cause of your symptoms. These are simple tests that can involve the movement of your arms and legs, the muscles and reflexes of your head, and tracking voluntary eye movements.

INFRARED GOGGLE TESTING: The Cornerstone Dizziness Clinic is one of the few centres that uses infrared goggle technology to measure nystagmus patterns of your eyes. Your eyes can function as a “window” into your brain. Your vestibular system has direct connections with the muscles that move your eyes. Our goggles allow us to view abnormal eye reflexes (which we term nystagmus) and more accurately categorize your condition.

**note that these tests are typically not the same as those VNG, ENG, and caloric tests administered at dizziness testing centres.

OUTCOMES: The aims of our initial assessment are to:

  1. Understand your problem, and formulate a diagnosis
  2. Identify any secondary dysfunctions that require a referral back to your doctor
  3. Create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and limitations

TREATMENT: The majority of our initial appointments include treatment. However, if your presentation is more complex, then we will spend the entire session assessing your condition to develop a full understanding of what is going on.

Follow Up Sessions

The number of treatments required for recovery varies from diagnosis to diagnosis, and from patient to patient. Your assessment will provide your physiotherapist with the information they need to discuss your prognosis and the expected number of sessions.

However, at our clinics, patients with a mechanical vestibular condition can feel better in as little as 1-3 sessions. Those with vestibular nerve involvement or concussion take more time to recover, but sessions are typically infrequent.


This depends on your diagnosis and your goals for recovery. Treatment can involve the following:

  1. Repositioning manoeuvres – your head and body will be guided through patterns of motion that promote stimulation of the inner ear organ and can relocate otoliths (crystals) if your diagnosis is BPPV.
  2. Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) exercises – these are specific home exercises prescribed based on our assessment findings. Commonly they can include eye and head stabilization, visual targeting/motion, movement desensitization, balance and body stability, gait and movement coordination, among other exercises.
  3. Activity Modifications and Education – most patients receive advice on appropriate changes to their daily activities. You may be instructed to avoid certain things and do other things more often or in a different way. This may mean adaptations to work, school, and leisure, in order to maximize your recovery.
