How to recognize vertigo symptoms

Vertigo is frequently caused by a malfunction in your inner ear, also known as the “vestibular system.” Your vestibular system assists you in maintaining your balance and center of gravity by sending messages to your brain about your current position or movements.

When your vestibular system is compromised, the messages sent to your brain are altered, and your movement suffers. You may feel as if the world is spinning around you, as if you can’t focus your vision for long periods of time, or as if you can’t stand/move properly without feeling as if you’ll topple over.

When your body’s equilibrium is disrupted, vertigo is a natural reaction. This is difficult to manage because it disrupts your daily routine.

In more severe cases, vertigo can be a sign of a medical condition that requires immediate evaluation by a medical practitioner.

Keep an eye out for the following symptoms:

  • Vomiting and nausea
  • Dual vision
  • Sweating
  • Abnormal eye movements
  • Weakness in the arms and legs
  • Vision and communication difficulties
  • Inability to concentrate or maintain alertness

If you recognize these symptoms, see a Uniontown, PA physical therapist as soon as possible. Please click here to make an appointment with Movement Physiotherapy & Performance.

How can I get rid of my vertigo?

Vertigo can be caused by a variety of factors. The following are some of the most common causes of vertigo:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): This is the most common cause of vertigo. It occurs when the tiny calcium crystals located in your ears become dislodged and move around to different parts of the ear that they are not supposed to be in.
  • Meniere’s disease: This condition develops when fluid accumulates in your ear(s). Ringing in the ears and sudden waves of dizziness/vertigo that can last for hours are common symptoms. You may also experience a brief loss of hearing.
  • Vestibular neuritis: This is an inner-ear infection that can cause vertigo.
  • Migraines: Migraines can impact your vestibular system, and may be coupled with sensitivities to light or sound, or may also impair your vision.
  • Stroke: A stroke affects movement in your whole body. If you recently suffered a stroke, you may experience waves of vertigo which may linger for extended periods of time.

Whatever the cause of your vertigo, our team of physical therapists at Movement Physiotherapy & Performance in Uniontown, PA can get to the bottom of it and provide cutting-edge treatments so you can get relief once and for all!
