Treatment for dizziness and vertigo
You can tell the difference between dizziness and vertigo.
Dizziness is the sensation that the body moves in space and/or loses balance. Vertigo is defined more as a feeling that objects and space revolve around us. In both cases, these are common symptoms that can greatly affect our balance and put us at risk of falling. The causes can be
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
- Meniere’s Disease
- Perilymphatic fistula
- Acoustic Neuroma
- Problems in the cervical region
Vestibular physiotherapy is a field of practice to treat these symptoms. Depending on the assessment of the condition, treatment consists of painless maneuvers, a habituation approach for dizziness to movements, balance re-education, specific re-education exercises that can be done at home.
At Neuro-Concept, the physiotherapist will evaluate your vestibular and oculomotor systems, as well as your static and dynamic balance in order to best meet your needs.
