VERTIGO / BPPV
Vertigo, or the symptom of room spinning, must be carefully evaluated and can often be corrected by a physical therapist. * Vertigo can be a serious condition and you should contact a health care professional immediately if you have it. *
BPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, is one of the most common reasons people get vertigo.
We test for BPPV with VNG goggles and positional testing such as the Dix-Hallpike and Supine Positional Testing for the presence of loose crystals called otoconia in the inner ear or vestibular system.
Often times we can then reposition those crystals in the semicircular canal in your vestibular system. We use researched techniques like the Epley and Gufoni Maneuver to correct BPPV. If you do have BPPV, repositioning will resolve your vertigo symptoms.
What do you do when the dizziness and nausea from your concussion doesn’t go away?
Often times the same impact that jarred your brain also jar your upper neck. Interestingly, your upper neck can cause similar symptoms, including nausea, dizziness, cloudiness, headache, and fatigue.
Physical Therapy can evaluate your neck and if that may be appropriate for care.
Like Post Concussive listed above, if you upper neck gets a little stiff or tight, it too can cause dizziness and nausea like symptoms.
