If you are someone who suffers from vertigo or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), sudden dizzy episodes ranging from mild to extreme cases have likely impacted your quality of life. Many vertigo sufferers cannot sleep or function normally. If this is you, the good news is that vertigo physiotherapy can give you the relief you’ve been seeking.

In this article, we will explore the role of physiotherapy in managing vertigo, and the techniques commonly employed.

What Causes Vertigo?

The tilting or swaying sensation that vertigo can leave you with is often a result of an inner ear problem, migraines, or BPPV. It can also be caused by psychological challenges such as anxiety or physical ailments such as low blood pressure or low blood sugar.

Most commonly, vertigo issues are a result of inner ear issues or the vestibular system, which is responsible for maintaining balance and spatial orientation, and are treatable using physio for vertigo. Experienced Physiotherapists and Chiropractors can alleviate your vertigo using a wide range of proven techniques.

What Does Treatment For Vertigo Entail?

At MVMT, vertigo treatment involves safe, painless high-level laser therapy that directly reduces inner ear inflammation and improves cellular function. We also provide experienced Epley Maneuver treatment, which usually gives relief to those suffering from vertigo within five minutes. The Epley Maneuver involves simple yet effective head and body repositioning, which helps to settle tiny calcium particles in the inner ear that become dislodged.

Another effective vertigo treatment is vestibular rehabilitation, which is where a qualified vertigo physiotherapist and chiropractor helps to retrain your inner ear to alleviate your vertigo using specific exercises. These exercises help patients adapt to the sensations of dizziness and regain their balance over time. This long-term treatment will not only provide you with relief but also help prevent future incidents of vertigo.

At MVMT, we often combine our non-invasive and effective treatments to provide you with the most comprehensive, fast-acting relief.
