Vertigo is a common ailment that affects a large amount of people every year and can be debilitating.
Symptoms are described as a feeling of rocking, dizziness, or the sensation that the room is spinning on yourself. It is believed there can be different causes to this such as vascular impairment, inner ear infections, issues with the cervical spine, and more commonly due to loose crystals in the ear that can cause BPPV ( Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo).
If you experience vertigo symptoms with a change in head or body positions such as laying down or sitting up in bed too quickly you may be experiencing BPPV. With the help of a properly trained physical therapist your vertigo symptoms can be treated and erased in only a few sessions.
