Vertigo and Dizziness

vertigo-and-dizziness

Physiotherapy treatment is very successful for people with vertigo and dizziness. A combination of history of symptoms and certain head and body movements form the basis of Vestibular Physiotherapy. The most common type of vertigo is called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) which accounts for more than 50% of all dizziness cases in the aging population. The symptoms of BPPV are caused by loosened calcium crystals (otoconia) which become stuck in the vestibular canals. The aim of Physiotherapy for BPPV is to move the loosened particles back to a place where they can be reabsorbed (utricle).
