What do you do when your whole world is spinning? Chances are, the sensation is all in your head — a condition known as vertigo. This serious disorder can be downright debilitating, leaving you with severe dizziness that stays with you even when you are standing or sitting still.
Vertigo is typically the result of a breakdown in communication between your brain and inner ear. At the office of Therapeutics Unlimited, our highly qualified team of physical therapists will listen to your concerns and develop an appropriate treatment plan. When properly diagnosed, your vertigo can be effectively treated with certain exercises.
The most common type of vertigo is called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which comes from the movement of crystals around the inner ear, and disturbing your center of balance.
BPPV: common signs
- Vertigo comes on fast as a result of head movement such as turning over in bed or bending forward to tie your shoes.
- Symptoms last less than 1 minute.
- A sensation that the room is spinning
- Dizzy, spinning feeling even when still or motionless.
Strategic maneuvers to your head by our trained physical therapists seek to reposition the crystals inside the inner ear so you can regain stability. At the office of Therapeutics Unlimited, we believe that nobody should have to endure constant feelings of dizziness. We invite you to learn more about our services and how our approach to wellness can help for a wide range of conditions. For more information, give us a call today.
