Do you often experience imbalance in your body or face difficulty in performing everyday tasks? Due to imbalance, you may not be able to stand still or walk. Sometimes there is a possibility that you may feel your surroundings spinning or moving. If you are experiencing these signs then you may be suffering from Vertigo. A condition where an individual suffers from poor body balance, dizziness or feels that his surrounding is spinning or moving is called Vertigo. There are multiple causes for Vertigo:
- Migraines: Is a condition of severe headache
- Labyrinthitis: Is an infection of in-ear
- Meniere’s disease: Involves decreased hearing capacity, low tone or roaring
- Certain movements of your head can be a cause
- Head injuries
Vertigo treatment may depend on the causes. Physical therapy is found to be an effective treatment for the condition. The most common methods to treat this disorder include:
- Vestibular rehab: This is a type of physical therapy that targets the treatment of your sensory system. Vertigo treatment may include vestibular rehab if you have recurrent symptoms of vertigo.
- Canalith repositioning maneuver: If you have an in-ear infection, it may be due to the insufficient calcium deposit from the canal into the ear chamber. This type of treatment will help in moving the calcium and induces proper balance
Symptoms Of Vertigo Or Peripheral Vertigo Are
- You may feel nauseated
- You may suffer from headache or migraine
- You may experience imbalance while walking or even standing
Positional Vertigo Treatment
The treatment includes a series of movements and Canalith repositioning maneuver to deposit the calcium into the inner chamber of your ears. Physical therapists will help you to perform these movements or exercises and recover from positional vertigo in a short period of time.
