Vertigo is the sensation of spinning. Even when you’re staying still, you may feel as if you’re moving or the room is moving around you. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most common types of vertigo and causes short periods of dizziness when the head is moved in certain positions. Causes include inner ear infections or disorders, migraine, tumors, stroke, head injury, and more.
Head and neck exercises designed to help the brain “correct” difference between your inner ears, as well as exercises designed to improve balance, can be instrumental to helping eliminate symptoms.
Additionally, ProRehab Louisville’s physical therapists can help correct issues with balance and walking once vertigo has stopped.
