Vertigo is a sudden sensation that the world is spinning around you or that you are tilted when you are not. One of the most common disorders that can cause vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). It most often occurs when you turn your head quickly or move it into certain positions, or when you chance body positions, such as lying down, sitting up or standing. Most episodes of vertigo last only a minute or two, but it can recur and it increases the risk for falls.
At Horizon Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, we provide specialized therapy for patients with vertigo or other vestibular (inner ear) disorders, such as dizziness, imbalance, nausea, fatigue, hearing changes, anxiety or difficulty concentrating. This therapy may include Canalith Repositioning, also known as the Epley Maneuver – which repositions the head with timed head maneuvers. Our experiences physical therapists also teach proper exercise techniques that patients can practice at home to maintain optimal health.
