Vertigo and Dizziness

About Vertigo

Vertigo and dizziness can be the result of a variety of different factors. The most common type of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). This occurs because the calcium crystals within the inner ear become dislodged. This can lead to dizziness, nausea, and loss of balance.

How physical therapy helps:

Our physical therapists perform a thorough examination of your balance and vestibular symptoms. We evaluate your visual movements, positioning of your head, neck joint mobility, and balance. At times, we may need to provoke symptoms to determine the exact cause of your vertigo or dizziness.

If you are suffering from dizziness and vertigo, you can benefit from physical therapy intervention to improve symptoms. There are specific vestibular techniques that our physical therapists can perform to settle the calcium deposits in the inner ear and improve your balance systems.
