Vestibular Rehabilitation in Scarborough
Dizziness is very common, with nearly 50% of all adults being affected by dizziness at some point in their lives. Dizziness and associated symptoms can lead to impaired balance, falls, low mood, difficulty performing regular activities of daily living, and disability.
Benign Paroxysmal Position Vertigo (BPPV) is an issue with the vestibular system (located in the inner ear) that can lead to feelings of dizziness or nausea; these symptoms are brought on by changes in head position, such as looking up or down, lying down, or rolling/turning. Don’t be alarmed! With treatment, BPPV usually resolves in 1 to 3 visits and has a very high success rate.
Head injuries (such as concussions), problems with your cardiovascular or neurological systems, and your eyes can also cause dizziness. If you are experiencing vertigo, dizziness, or have been diagnosed with a vestibular disorder, you can benefit from manual techniques as well as a tailored exercise program to help manage your symptoms.
