Dizziness types & treatments
Some major types and causes of dizziness and how we treat them at our Chatswood chiropractic clinic.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
BPPV is condition that affects the inner ear. It may be a result of trauma to the head, increasing age or have no cause at all. Patients with BPPV experience short bursts of vertigo and dizziness when moving their head. It is due to small calcified structures moving around in the inner ear. It is a balance disorder and it is important to rule out other conditions such as labyrinthitis and Meniere’s disease. In some instances imaging of the head may be required.
Treatment at the clinic involves teaching sufferers simple movements such the Dix-Hall-Pike and Epley’s manoeuvre. Further, we can reduce the irritation that occurs in the head and neck due to ongoing vertigo.
The neck plays an important role in the stability and balance of the body. In some instances when the neck is irritated, the bodies understanding of where it is in space may become dysfunctional. For this reason some persistent neck pain may result in the experience of dizziness or vertigo, which is called Cervicogenic Dizziness.
