What Causes Dizziness and Vertigo?Vertigo and dizzy spells are sensations of spinning, swaying, or feeling off-balance, often accompanied by nausea, sweating, or difficulty concentrating.

These symptoms can be debilitating and significantly impact daily life. Some common causes of vertigo and dizzy spells include:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): Caused by displaced crystals in the inner ear, disrupting the vestibular system's balance signals.
  • Vestibular Migraine: Migraine headaches accompanied by vestibular symptoms like vertigo or dizziness.
  • Meniere's Disease: Inner ear disorder characterized by episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and ear fullness.
  • Labyrinthitis and Vestibular Neuritis: Inflammation of the inner ear structures or vestibular nerve, often triggered by viral infections.
  • Anxiety or Panic Disorders: Psychological factors can contribute to feelings of dizziness or lightheadedness.

Vestibular rehabilitation is a specialized form of physical therapy designed to address vestibular system dysfunction and improve balance and stability. Treatment approaches may include:


Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers

Techniques like the Epley maneuver to reposition displaced crystals in the inner ear, alleviating symptoms of BPPV.


Habituation Exercises

Repetitive movements or positional changes designed to desensitize the vestibular system and reduce symptoms of dizziness or vertigo.


Gaze Stabilization Exercises

Eye and head movement exercises to improve visual focus and stability, reducing dizziness during head movements.


Balance Training

Exercises to improve static and dynamic balance, reducing the risk of falls and improving confidence in daily activities.


Vestibular Adaptation Exercises

Activities that challenge the vestibular system and promote central compensation, helping the brain adapt to vestibular dysfunction.
