Common Causes of Dizziness & Vertigo
There are many factors that can make you feel dizzy. Many of our patients ask us, “what is the difference between dizziness and vertigo?”. Vertigo is considered a type of dizziness characterized by the sense that your surroundings are spinning. Dizziness includes a range of sensations, including feeling faint, light-headed, unsteady, woozy, or off-balance. This imbalance in your vestibular system can cause other symptoms, including the inability to concentrate or stay alert, nausea or vomiting, and imbalance.
How Vestibular Rehabilitation Can Help
Studies have shown that approximately 50% of all adults are affected by dizziness at some point. Vestibular problems are responsible for 40% of all cases of dizziness. Our team of therapists uses vestibular rehabilitation to treat dizziness and vertigo. Vestibular rehab includes a wide range of treatments customized based on your condition, including:
- Identifying the underlying cause of the vestibular symptoms
- Performing screenings for more serious pathological issues and referral to a physician if needed
- Discussing the possible options to treat your condition
- Implementing your specific one-on-one, individualized treatment
We Use Infrared Goggle Technology
Your vestibular system and eyes have a direct connection with each other. Problems with your vestibular system can result in changes to your eye reflexes, producing abnormal eye movements called nystagmus. Closely examining these nystagmus patterns of your eyes allows us to perform a more detailed assessment resulting in a more accurate diagnosis. We are proud to be one of only a very few clinics in Edmonton providing research-based assessment and treatment services for vestibular disorders using infrared goggle technology. Each personalized treatment depends on our assessment findings and can involve patient education, manual therapy, head manoeuvers, and customized exercise programs.
