Have you ever struggled with dizziness, and been diagnosed with having vertigo?
These symptoms are often caused by inner ear problems; however, they can also come on after a concussion or mild traumatic brain injury. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is the most common inner ear problem which is caused by calcium carbonate crystals that are usually in a certain area of the inner ear, but they become dislodged and move into the semicircular canals of the ear. This is what causes the severe dizziness and spinning you experience when you change position, or move your head in certain ways. Our physiotherapists are trained in specific repositioning maneuvers which are extremely effective in treating BPPV.
