Specialized Vestibular Therapy

What is Vestibular Therapy?

Positional Vertigo, also known as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), is a prevalent cause of vertigo. This disorder affects the inner ear and induces sensations of spinning, nausea, or imbalance, usually lasting from a few seconds to a minute. While BPPV can affect individuals of any age, it is more commonly observed in older adults.

BPPV is often triggered by specific movements such as bending forward, reaching and looking up, lying down, and rolling over in bed. Although it typically occurs spontaneously, it can also develop following a viral inner ear infection or as a result of trauma, such as a fall, concussion, or motor vehicle accident (MVA). Vestibular therapy is an effective treatment for this condition.

The main symptoms of vestibular disorders include dizziness, vertigo, and disequilibrium. Dizziness is characterized by a feeling of lightheadedness or unsteadiness, while vertigo is the sensation of the self or surroundings moving, often described as spinning, which can be highly debilitating.

Vestibular therapy aims to reduce dizziness and enhance the senses that compensate for its causes. The therapy focuses on several goals: improving gaze stability, enhancing postural stability, reducing vertigo, and increasing the ability to perform daily activities.

This is achieved through adaptation and substitution techniques that utilize vision, posture, strength, and proprioception to compensate for vestibular system dysfunction.

Common Symptoms Of Vertigo

The symptoms can last seconds, minutes, hours, or even days. They can occur in various positions, such as sitting, standing, or lying down.
