Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a commonly occurring inner ear problem. If you are symptomatic during testing, we'll treat for this condition: an Epley maneuver to reposition the "crystals" if displaced in your posterior canal, "Log Roll" if in the horizontal canal or instruct in and perform Brandt-Daroff habituation exercises.
Vertigo Symptoms Frequently Occur:
Turning over in bed
Getting up from bed in the morning
Looking up or reaching up for items on a high shelf
The dynamic "Three Member Sensory Team"; Vestibular, Visual and Proprioceptive sensory systems are constantly sending information to the brain. Our treatments are designed to help your brain coordinate these signals and correct for mis-match or differences between your inner ears to help maintain balance.
One third of older people fall each year. Falling once doubles your risk of falling again. One out of five falls causes a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury. We evaluate your fall risk and design an individualized program to address your specific needs.
