Dizziness & Vertigo
Dizziness and vertigo are common conditions that people seek medical attention for. These conditions can be caused by a variety of reasons such as medications, vision, cervical spine issues, inner ear infections, more complex neurological conditions, or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
One of the most common forms of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), an inner-ear problem that causes short periods of a spinning sensation when your head is moved in certain positions. This happens when inner ear crystals get trapped in one of the three circular canals, which disrupts the fluid and causes a false sense of movement.
This type of vertigo can be easily diagnosed and treated by an experienced physical therapist. BPPV can be successfully treated in one to two visits.
