Vestibular Facts!

Vestibular dizziness affects 1/3 of adults aged 40 years and older, according to a US study.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), Labyrinthitis, Vestibular Neuritis, Vestibular migraine and vestibular hypofunction due to aging are the most common types of vestibular disorders.

Vestibular medications such as betahistine, prochlorperazine, and stemetil etc. are frequently used for vertigo and dizziness; these medications are helpful for a short term during acute attacks. Taking these drugs long-term can impede natural recovery and could even cause untoward side effects such as Parkinsonism.

Vestibular rehabilitation is an evidence-based approach to the assessment and treatment of vestibular disorders. Certain vestibular conditions such as BPPV can even be diagnosed and cured within one or two sessions. But, according to a UK based study, people are waiting on average 92 weeks (14-202 weeks) for the correct diagnosis and successful treatment in the NHS.

Customised vestibular rehabilitation under the supervision of vestibular specialist is superior to conventional approaches such as watchful waiting, vestibular medications, generic exercises and self-treatments using internet materials and Youtube instructions

Referral to the DizzyCare Clinic

We accept self-referrals from patients and family, GP referral, consultant referral and referrals from Insurance companies, solicitors, and case managers

What to expect when you are at the DizzyCare Clinic?

First, we will conduct a thorough assessment through detailed history taking, physical examination & special tests to find out the underlying cause/causes of your dizziness, unsteadiness, and vertigo

Once the underlying cause of dizziness is established, we will choose the right type of treatments to address your dizziness, unsteadiness, and risk of falling.

Home exercises will be prescribed where necessary and regular reviews will be offered as required

We are only a Skype away!

Some people can sort out their vertigo/dizziness with the help of Drs GOOGLE and YouTube. Sometimes these tools can be helpful especially when one has to wait for weeks and months to see a specialist in a state-run hospital. Unfortunately, DIY success rate is very low for self-diagnosis and self-treatment of vestibular disorders; if DIY hasn't helped you, we will be happy to help you out.

"Distance doesn't matter any more"
"Dont have to worry about driving to the clinic when you are dizzy"
"Don’t have to wait for a lift to attend the appointment"
We offer consultations via Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp and phone.


Re-Dizziness Over the past few years, I have had dizziness with several episodes of vertigo. I visited my GP a number of times about the dizziness and they said it was labyrinthitis and it would go in a few weeks. Two years ago I had another episode and my GP referred me to an ENT consultant who sent me for an MRI scan and hearing tests. The scan and tests came back clear and they said it was nothing serious. This was good news but I still felt dizzy at times and tried to carry on as usual.

Earlier this year there was a stressful event within the family and that seemed to make the dizziness worse and I felt as if I was veering to one side when walking, but again I tried to just carry on as usual until June, when I had an ear infection in both ears which set off the dizziness quite badly again. During the year I also began to feel very anxious about feeling dizzy and started to avoid socializing and had time off work. I was feeling dizzy whenever I went out to the shops or out for a coffee with a friend and only felt I could go out if my husband was with me. Even at home I felt dizzy when cooking in the kitchen or doing household chores. I stopped doing Pilates which I enjoyed because I felt dizzy. I saw my GP during this time and they offered anti-depressants to help with anxiety which I didn’t really want to start as I didn’t feel that I was depressed although I was very anxious about the dizziness. I did take up mindfulness which helped a little. The GP referred me back to the ENT consultant again.

I had been looking online to try and find some answers to what I was feeling and I came across the Dizzycare Clinic in Codsall and I booked to see Samy. Straight away I felt that he knew what I was talking about and he gave me a list of foods to avoid and strategies to try along with exercises to build up. He gave my some clear ideas of what I had been going through in terms of vestibular migraines and PPPD which I had never heard of before. I felt that I had something I could work on to help myself and that I could take more control of how I was feeling.

At first I was still very anxious about feeling dizzy doing the exercises but gradually I felt I could do more without feeling so anxious all the time. Although I still felt dizzy at times I was feeling more relaxed and that I could manage things. Samy also said I should tell friends and family more about how I felt and doing that also helped in making me feel more relaxed about whether I wanted to socialize or do activities. They were all more understanding than I thought which made me feel better. Gradually over the weeks I built up the exercises and was able to go out and do things without feeling so anxious and dizzy all the time. I feel much more confident and although the dizziness is still there at times it is not dominating what I think about and the anxiety I feel is much less, although I know there are some triggers including tiredness, stress and certain foods which I now try and manage more carefully. I have started Pilates again which I am enjoying and I also feel more confident about going out and taking part in social activities.

I am very grateful to Samy for listening and being patient with me when I was feeling anxious about trying new exercises. He gave me the confidence to help myself through the strategies and exercises he taught me.

To Samy, First of all, I would like to thank you for improving my quality of life and would certainly recommend your services to other people. All of my friends are amazed at how I have improved since attending your clinic. I am now dizzy free and not using a walking stick to help my balance Each day I am continuing my exercises and getting stronger daily. At last, I am now driving and tending my garden. (Yes I am being sensible) Once again I cant thank you enough and let you know how happy I am.

Hi Samy I thought the treatment you gave me was very professional and was evidence-based. At first I was skeptical about whether it would work but it has and now feel a lot better. Thank you Samy

Thank you Sammy. I am very grateful for the help you have given to me, and am feeling very much better and more positive about the condition. The treatment and exercises have certainly helped to improve my symptoms enormously, and although I realise this may be an ongoing problem I at least now know where I can go to for help should I have a repeat episode. You have helped me to help myself too, and there is great value in that. Kind regards

I came to see Samy a couple of weeks ago after being advised by my GP to try the dizzycare clinic to cure me of my BPPV which I have been suffering from to some extent since mid-April. My GP had given me some medication but it did not seem to make much difference. After assessing my dizzyness with some questionnaires Samy did a couple of manoevres and to my great surprise the dizzyness just vanished. The assessment and treatment took no longer than half an hour. Brilliant result and the dizziness has held off allowing me to do things that I found very difficult before e.g. floor exercises in the gym. Brilliant. I am so grateful to Samy and being told to see him. I wholeheartedly recommend to visit the Dizzy Care clinic if you have problems with vertigo. Thanks so much.

I cant speak too highly of Samys care and attention. He saw me at very short notice and even came in specially to see me again on the very day he was going on holiday! His manipulation greatly improved my vertigo and I can thoroughly recommend him to anyone unfortunate enough to suffer from this.

In January I became dizzy and nauseous. Months later there was no improvement I was struggling to functional at all, let alone manage my young children and job. I saw several specialists who gave me various diagnoses and different medications but nothing helped. The first time I saw Samy in May 2019 was the first time I dared to believe I might recover. His skill and understanding is second to none and in 30 mins he had worked out what was wrong, and more importantly identified exercises I needed to do to improve my symptoms. In 6 sessions I went from struggling to walk, to driving and returning to work. I hate to think what would have happened if Samy hadn’t been recommended to me, but I’m sure I would have lost my job and then possibly my home. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Samy for giving me the tools to get my life back.
