Natural Dizziness Treatment Toronto

Our natural dizziness treatment program has good evidence that it provides effective relief for many causes of dizziness & nausea, without the need for medication. If used for the appropriate conditions, these techniques often work better than many of the commonly prescribed medications (e.g. Serc, Gravol, etc.), which are generally short-acting and have side effects. Paul is certified in VRT a form of physiotherapy used for natural dizziness treatment. Learn more about how this program can help you by clicking: Natural Dizziness Treatment Toronto

Vestibular Loss Treatment Toronto

To understand why our vestibular loss program is effective, it is first necessary to know what causes Vestibular loss. The Labyrinth, which is part of your inner ear, contains both your hearing and vestibular system. The vestibular system tells you about the direction and speed you are moving. It also contributes to your balance and allows your eyes to maintain focus on an object while you or it is moving. Vestibular loss happens when there is a problem either with the sensory organs themselves or with the nerves that transmit information to your brain. Our vestibular loss program starts off with a thorough assessment. Paul’s VRT training, as well as his extensive experience, make him adept at diagnosing the source of your vestibular loss and knowing what treatments will or won’t work for you.

Sports Concussion Treatment Toronto

Sports concussion treatment is similar in many ways to treating any other concussion. However, depending on the sport and the level the athlete wants to return to, their capabilities need to be restored. The commonly prescribed initial period of inactivity will lead to losses in all areas. In addition, the sports concussion itself is known to reduce fitness, balance, agility & coordination. Inadequate preparation can lead to re-flaring of an existing concussion, or be the cause of a new concussion.

Motor Vehicle Accident Concussion Treatment Toronto

Motor vehicle accident (MVA) concussion treatments have the added complexity of dealing with Ontario’s MVA-related legislation. There are special requirements for the submission of treatment plans and for direct billing to the insurer. Staff at East Toronto Orthopaedic and Sports Injury Clinic and at Trilogy Physiotherapy have expertise in dealing with all issues related to MVA treatment plans and billing. This, combined with Paul’s knowledge of concussions, makes for a winning combination. Learn more about how this program can help you by clicking: Motor Vehicle Accident Concussion Treatment Toronto

Post-Concussion Syndrome Treatment Toronto

Post-Concussion Syndrome treatment is needed in about 15% of concussed individuals. It is important to realize that Post-Concussion Syndrome (AKA Persistent Post Concussion Symptoms) is not just a long-lasting concussion. It is best thought of as another condition altogether, which sometimes develops in the three month period following the concussion incident. Effectively treating Post-Concussion Syndrome requires the kind of knowledge and experience that Paul and associates can provide.
