My dizziness has completely gone, thanks to Apex Headache Clinic!

For 56-year-old David Morton from Belfast, vertigo and dizziness were ruining his life. He had been battling with dizziness every day for ten years and had given up on finding a cure. Here, he shares how Apex Headache Clinic’s unique regime of specialist manual physiotherapy treatment for vertigo and dizziness, called The Nelson Vertigo Approach™, cleared his dizziness, meaning that he could finally enjoy life again.

David, when did your vertigo begin?

I had suffered dizziness for around 10 years and initially, I was sent to the hospital to see a neurologist where I was diagnosed with PPPD (persistent postural perceptual dizziness). I was treated for vertigo with medication, but it made no difference at all to my symptoms. The dizziness I had everyday was terrible and it made me feel sick.

How did the dizziness affect your life?

I got up everyday feeling dizzy and sick and I didn’t feel like doing anything.  Before the vertigo and dizziness started, I used to spend a lot of time outside riding my bike and I had to stop this because of the dizziness. It was having a bad effect on my everyday life.

What led you to Apex Headache Clinic?

My wife read about Apex Headache Clinic on social media and told me about it. I kept telling her there was no point in going to see anyone there.  I had seen professors in the hospital who couldn’t help me, and I believed that if they couldn’t help me then Apex Headache Clinic definitely wouldn’t be able to help. The doctors had put me on an antidepressant drug to try and treat my dizziness. They kept increasing the dosage but even the maximum dose wasn’t working. I didn’t like taking this medication and that is when I decided to give Apex Headache Clinic a go.

How has Apex Headache Clinic changed your life?

My life has changed one hundred per cent as the dizziness has completely gone. It’s fantastic! To me my Headache Physiotherapist was a miracle worker. We gradually reduced the medication I was taking and now I’m off it altogether. I haven’t had any dizziness now for 3 months. I used to dread getting up in the mornings for another day with dizziness, but I am now enjoying life again and I have started doing a lot more walking.

What advice would you offer someone suffering from vertigo or dizziness?

I would tell them to go to Apex Headache Clinic right away. Let them try to help because what they have done for me has been amazing.
