Blured,Photo,Of,A,Woman,Suffering,From,Vertigo,Or,Dizziness If you’ve ever experienced prolonged dizziness or spinning sensations, you may have had vertigo. Vertigo can occur for several reasons, such as a side effect of medication, dehydration, or motion sickness.

When you experience vertigo often or for prolonged periods, it can make day-to-day tasks more difficult. However, Cynergy PT has a solution: vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT). Keep reading to learn more about how VRT can improve your vertigo symptoms.

What Is Vertigo?

Effectively treated through VRT, vertigo is a medical condition that is epitomized by feelings of dizziness and loss of balance. If you are susceptible to “dizzy spells” or regularly feel as if the world is spinning, you are likely experiencing the sensation of vertigo.

A condition of the inner ear, vertigo has many different causes that must be diagnosed with the help of a trained and experienced medical professional. For example, cervicogenic dizziness (also called cervical vertigo) is associated with certain painful neck conditions and often arises in the wake of a spinal injury. Injury can also lead to post-traumatic vertigo, which might occur after a car collision.

However, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common form of vertigo. Defined by the displacement of the small inner ear crystals that govern human balance and physical stability, BPPV might have any number of underlying causes or occur for no clear reason.

Addressing Vertigo with Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy

Physicians must target the inner ear to treat BPPV and other forms of vertigo. A highly specialized form of treatment, VRT has proven effective at addressing sensations of dizziness, imbalance, and disequilibrium caused by the inner ear (vestibular) system.

After precisely diagnosing your vertigo condition, a physician can prescribe a specific set of VRT exercises. By adhering to a prescribed VRT regimen and personalized care plan, patients can find increased physical stability, decrease their fall risk, resume normal daily activities, and generally live more fulfilling lives.
