Dizziness & Vertigo
Has your dizziness been impacting your daily life? Do You Want to Get Rid of Those “Spins”?
We’ve all get “dizzy” – so you cannot concentrate, cannot see straight, and cannot stand straight without falling. You may even experience a “tunnel vision” where the vision of your surroundings is dark for a few seconds.
Dizziness is common and can be caused by many reasons. Vertigo, on the other hand, is slightly different. Although dizziness is often the same as “drowsiness,” which causes discomfort, vertigo is often a reaction to a physical condition that causes an imbalance in your body.
People with vertigo reported their feelings as if they are “slowing down” or “spinning” even while sitting.
How to treat Vertigo/Dizziness? Physiotherapy and relief for your dizziness/vertigo
Vertigo and dizziness can disrupt your daily life and limit your ability to perform even the simplest tasks. Fortunately, physical therapy for dizziness and vertigo can help, for whatever reason. The Trinity team’s staff are very effective in diagnosing and treating dizziness and vertigo through vestibular rehabilitation.
Vestibular rehabilitation includes treatments such as Epley exercises and Cawthorne head exercises. The use of Cawthorne’s head is aimed at reducing muscle sensation and reducing the effects of vertigo.
How do I know if I’m experiencing vertigo?
An imbalance in the inner ear often causes it, called a “vestibular system.” Your vestibular system helps you maintain balance and the center of gravity by sending messages to your brain about your movements. When this changes, the necessary messages in your brain are blocked, and this affects your actions.
You may feel that the world revolves around you, that you cannot focus your eyes for a long time or that you cannot stand/move appropriately without feeling too much. The most common causes of dizziness are:
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV)Migraines
- Vestibular neuritis
- Meniere’s disease
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may experience vertigo:
- Irregular eye movements
- Weakness in hands or feet
- Inability to concentrate or stay awake
- Difficulty seeing or speaking
- Double vision
- Nausea or vomiting
So, what’s causing my dizziness?
Many of the factors that can cause dizziness are insomnia, poor nutrition, overeating or physical ailments such as colds or flu.
Dizziness can also occur due to simple things like waking up too quickly after a long rest. Some symptoms associated with dizziness may be:
- Loss of balance
- Feeling dizzy or faint
- Momentarily impaired vision (i.e., tunnel vision)
- Lightheadedness or heavy-headedness
