Dr Woon Jee Tio and Dr Scott Ling recently attended a 2 day neuroscience workshop. Located in Melbourne, the workshop focused on the vestibular system.
Dr Danielle Gregory and Dr Paul Noone conducted the workshop. As Chiropractors they have a special interest in neuroscience and the vestibular system.
The course highlights the importance of understanding the vestibular system… and the inner ear imbalance treatment.
In particular common conditions or symptoms presented to us in our clinical practice.
The course included the latest clinical research and best practices for the vestibular system…. including vestibular testing, management and rehabilitation.
According to medicinenet.com the medical definition of vestibular is:
Vestibular: 1) Having to do with a structure that is a vestibule (entrance), such as the vestibule of the ear. 2) Having to do with the body’s system for maintaining equilibrium.

Home exercises are often a vital part of the treatment. An individualised treatment plan can be designed with appropriate exercises. These exercises are to be performed at a prescribed pace.

Although different, chiropractic and acupuncture play their unique part in tackling vestibular issues. Both medicines work very well in combination with the nervous system.
Dr Ling and Dr Tio continue to use acupuncture and chiropractic, side by side in the clinic. They have both developed a special interest in neuroscience, respectively.
In the last 10 years they have worked together to resolve many difficult cases. Often their patients considered them their last resort for medical help.
They look forward to applying their latest training and knowledge in the clinic… and continue with their successful patient outcomes
