Dizziness

Do you suffer from a whirling, spinning or dizziness feeling? If so you are not alone, it is reported that up to 50% of adults will experience dizziness at some point. There are many causes for dizziness, one of these is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is a condition of the inner ear. We can assess for this using the Hallpike-Dix test. This helps us to determine if your inner ear is the cause of the dizziness. If this is the case then the Epley Manoeuvre can be simply performed by our trained health professional. In most cases this quickly resolves the symptoms. Commonly, with BPPV, people will complain of dizziness when turning over in bed, looking up, looking down or laying down. This spinning feeling may be accompanied with nausea/vomiting and falling. Here at the Iveson Clinic we are proud to have health professionals fully trained in the assessment and treatment of BPPV. Call to make your appointment today on 01787...

Katie’s Fantastic Fundraising

Katie McLernon, one of the physiotherapists at the Iveson Clinic, recently took on the daunting challenge of completing the Lakesman Triathlon in Cumbria (comprising a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride followed by a full 26.2 mile marathon, all within a 17 hour time limit.) Katie and her sister Lucy took part to raise money for charities which had helped their mum, Carol, who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in 2016. Whilst undergoing treatment she contracted pneumonia due to weakened immune system and later had a stroke. Against all odds she is pulling through and is on the mend. The sisters raised a phenomenal amount of money, some of which they donated to My WiSH, the West Suffolk Hospital charity. The funds were used to purchase new fans for the stroke unit, to help keep patients and their families comfortable. Katie, Carol and Lucy visited the stroke unit to present the fans to the staff. All of us at the Iveson Clinic are immensely proud of Katie’s achievement and wish Carol all the best for her continuing recovery....

A Warm Welcome to a Returning Member of Staff

A new member of staff has recently joined the Iveson Clinic, or rather an old colleague has returned! Katie McLernon qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist in 2010 and began work at the Iveson Clinic in 2011 on a part-time basis, as well as working for the NHS for several years. She then went travelling and worked abroad. After spending a year working as a physiotherapist in Singapore, Katie returned to the UK and we are excited that she has chosen to come back to work at the Iveson Clinic. Katie’s special areas of interest are managing chronic injuries, sports injuries and paediatrics. She has qualifications in clinical Pilates, which she uses to assess and treat chronic injuries. She can also provide one to one Pilates sessions, to enable patients to gain good foundation knowledge and technique, either to help their recovery or prior to commencing Pilates classes elsewhere. Katie is also very passionate about providing stroke rehabilitation and this can be done either in the Clinic or as a home visit. She is proud to have had fantastic results with stroke patients, in improving balance, walking and restoring function in patient’s limbs. Katie will be treating patients at the Iveson Clinic on Thursdays, as well as offering home/domiciliary visits....
