Dizziness and vertigo may have various underlying causes, but they share the common experience of feeling unsteady or disoriented. While dizziness often relates to “lightheadedness,” making it challenging to focus or stand still, vertigo presents as a sensation of spinning or rocking, even when at rest.
These symptoms can significantly disrupt daily life and activities. If you’re experiencing dizziness or vertigo in Toronto, Isomatic is your go-to destination for effective care.
Dizziness can result from factors like lack of sleep, nutritional deficiencies, overexertion, or physical ailments such as a head cold or flu. It can even occur when rising quickly after extended rest. Symptoms may include:
- Momentary vision impairment (like tunnel vision)
- A woozy or faint feeling
- Loss of balance
Vertigo often stems from an inner ear imbalance, impacting the vestibular system responsible for maintaining balance and sending movement signals to the brain. When this system is disrupted, you may experience sensations of spinning, difficulty maintaining focus, and an unsteady gait. Common vertigo causes include:
- Meniere’s disease (fluid buildup in the ear)
- Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV, related to ear crystals)
- Vestibular neuritis (inner-ear infection)
If you’re dealing with double vision, nausea, difficulty focusing, or limb weakness, you may be living with vertigo.
How Physiotherapy Helps Dizziness and Vertigo:
Both dizziness and vertigo can severely impact daily life, but physiotherapy offers effective solutions. At Isomatic, we specialize in diagnosing and treating these conditions, using vestibular rehabilitation techniques.
Vestibular rehabilitation includes methods like the Epley maneuver and Cawthorne head exercises. The Epley maneuver is used for canalith repositioning, especially for BPPV patients, while Cawthorne exercises aim to reduce nerve sensitivity and alleviate vertigo symptoms.
