Vertigo is a condition that we commonly see here at The Glen Back Care & Sports Therapy. Otherwise known as BPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, it can be a very distressing disorder which originates in the inner ear. The individual tends to suffer a spinning sensation with changes in head position, sometimes so severe as to create nausea and even vomiting. Most often it causes dizziness, difficulty with balance or a lightheaded feeling, depending on the severity on the condition.
Your GP can prescribe medication to reduce the feelings of dizziness and nausea, however one of the best-known forms of treatment is a particular series of head movements known as the Epley manoeuvre. Our therapists are experienced in performing this treatment, the aim of which is to re-position important particles inside the inner ear and restore a person’s normal sense of balance and position.
If you suffer from vertigo, book a consultation with one of our caring therapists and let them guide you to a solution as soon as possible. Give us a call on 95609393 to arrange your consultation now!
