Physical Therapy for Positional Vertigo
Have you been feeling dizzy when you move your head?
Do you feel a spinning sensation when you turn over or get in/out of bed?
Does bending over or looking up give you a feeling of dizziness?
You may be experiencing something called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, or BPPV. BPPV is a disorder of the vestibular system where crystals in the inner ear break free from where they are supposed to be located and fall into the semicircular canals. When these crystals get into the semicircular canals, it causes an increased sensitivity to head movement/position changes.
BPPV is something that can happen spontaneously or following a fall, car accident, or other head trauma. This type of spinning dizziness can be very debilitating. However, this condition is very treatable and we can provide that treatment here at Dynamic Physical Therapy! Symptoms that are caused by BPPV can typically be diminished in 1-2 Physical Therapy visits.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and would like a Physical Therapist to evaluate you in order to determine if you have BPPV and would benefit from treatment, please call Dynamic Physical Therapy at (760) 501-6655. We look forward to helping you!
