BPPV or vertigo is a false sensation of movement caused by head or body movement. It feels like you or the objects around you are spinning or moving. It is important to understand that vertigo or dizziness is not a disorder or disease in itself. Instead, it is a symptom of an underlying condition.
Vestibular Neuritis is an inflammatory and often viral infection which causes acute & sudden onset of vertigo and dizziness in a previously well, young or middle-aged individual that can last for days or weeks. Vestibular Neuritis typically is not accompanied by hearing loss or tinnitus (noise or ringing in the ear).
Vestibular physiotherapy is an effective treatment for BPPV (Vertigo) as well as other dizziness and balance disorders related to the vestibular (inner ear) system. Vestibular rehabilitation by Physiomobility is a science-based treatment program offered by our trained physiotherapists for dizziness & balance disorders originating from inner ear dysfunction, injuries or conditions.
Inner ear disorders are the cause of 85- 80% of dizziness complaints. Inner ear disorders can be caused by whiplash, blows to the head, viral infections, high doses of certain antibiotics, strokes or degeneration of the inner ear’s balance function, also known as the vestibular system, which often deteriorates with age. Meniere’s disease is also a common cause of dizziness.
After a comprehensive assessment, in acute vertigo (BPPV) caused by displaced particles, a vestibular physiotherapist employs appropriate re-positioning manoeuvers to reset the displaced crystal particles back in the vestibular canal. In many cases, this is enough treatment. Although very frightening, but vertigo does not usually signify any serious disease.
Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that occurs after a direct or indirect impact injury to the head such as whiplash, a fall or sports injuries. Most of concussion injuries cause mild symptoms such as headache, blurred vision, or sensitivity to light and noise. Symptoms usually recover within a few weeks. If symptoms persist, or vestibular symptoms such as dizziness develop, an assessment is warranted.
Online and in-person workshops to educate our clients and our community on common causes of dizziness and balance impairment and how physiotherapists can treat these conditions. Sign up for one of our online workshops if you or someone you know experiences dizziness and balance impairments and want to learn how to manage it and prevent falls and injuries.
Nearly 25% of people older than 65-year-old fall at least once a year and more than half of them do not report this to their family and doctor. Once you have a fall due to loss of balance, your chances of falling again doubles. As one age, the fear of falling deters them from partaking in various activities, especially if they have fallen before and received a serious injury.
We do not need a referral from a doctor for assessment and treatment. However, we encourage our patients to visit their primary care provider to rule out more serious causes for dizziness. After an assessment, we may refer you back to your physician for more testing or a referral to a specialist if needed or if your progress is not as expected. Your family physician is an important member of your care team. With your permission, we will communicate your plan of care and your progress with your doctor.
