Do you experience dizziness? Dizziness is commonly caused by cardiovascular issues, neurological dysfunctions, visual deficits, anxiety and depression. However, it can also be due to dysfunction of the vestibular system, including:
BPPV-Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
Head Trauma (whiplash)
Vestibular system degeneration
Ear infections and inner ear infections
Ototoxicity-high dosage or long term use of certain antibiotics
Through vestibular rehabilitation, children and adults may find relief and reduce their dizziness. I use specialized exercises that result in the stabilization of your gaze and gait. Most vestibular rehabilitation therapy involves head movements that are essential in stimulating and retraining the vestibular system.
