About The Balance Centre

Treatment Received: Physiotherapist Consultation
I am writing this on behalf of my Mum who received treatment from the Balance Centre in Oct 2015 through to June 2016. The service was excellent. My mum suffered a post viral balance condition and very incapacitated. I am delighted to say that she is back to full health walking 6 miles a day.
I can not recommend the Balance Clinic enough. Only wish we had known about the Balance Clinic soon

"It was great to get data driven tests and results"
4.5 50Reviewed 09 Mar 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Balance and Tinnitus Treatment
I had treatment in 2015 for vestibular issues at the Balance Center. I had suffered for months and had lots of tests and physiotherapy elsewhere, but got better diagnosis and treatment here.

I highly recommend anyone who has balance problems to contact the Balance Centre.

I had lots of tests and treatments and a physiotherapist suggested the Balance Centre. I was willing to travel the 100 miles to Dublin if there was hope of an improvement in my balance.

It was great to get data driven tests and results. The simple exercises I got were a bit boring to do but worth it. I achieved very good improvement from doing them regularly.

Occasionally get symptoms if I'm very tired but if I do the Balance exercises for a while it goes away again.
