Are you experiencing Dizziness or Vertigo?
“….its like standing on the deck of a ship in really high seas” – Laura Hillenbrand
When your brain is getting mixed messages about your position in space this creates the awful sensation of vertigo which is the false sense of motion or spinning. This sensation is very destabilising and unpleasant to the point of nausea in some cases. BPPV is one of the most common conditions causing vertigo and when correctly identified and managed can resolve rapidly with physio manoeuvres.
Depending on the nature of your dizziness condition will then determine the optimal management. Your physio will provide a thorough assessment to help treatment planning which may include specific exercises, manual techniques as well as activity advice and referral where indicated.
