Dizziness and dizziness

TREATMENT of Dizziness and dizziness

Vertigo presents as a type of dizziness felt with a false sensation of movement. The victims of this situation have the impression of experiencing a certain imbalance, and that the world is turning upside down. With this inexplicable sensation, vertigo is mostly similar to children’s games when going around in circles. When we stop, we have the hunch that the environment around us also turns on a vicious circle. Most of the mass most often uses the terms “stunning” and “vertigo” in a different way. It is sometimes complex to define these sensations.

How to differentiate dizziness and vertigo?

By focusing on the word vertigo, it is sometimes difficult to share what one really feels. Differentiating between dizziness and vertigo can be complex most of the time. And many people still confuse these two terms.

Coming from the Latin word “verter”, the term vertigo means to turn. This sensation is presented in an intense way, which is especially more similar to a sensation that children feel when riding a merry-go-round. The pathology of vertigo can be characterized differently depending on the case. There are types of vertigo that occur only once, and other types occur episodically. There are even some people who experience this delicate situation between several times a month or even a year.

Known as a state of intoxication, dizziness represents a particular sensation similar to the effect of alcohol or a certain pitching sensation. Treatment of dizziness is different from vertigo, as it is related to a certain literature characterized by false vertigo.

What causes vertigo

The source of vertigo can begin from multiple well-diversified origins. One of the best known is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. There are also certain situations caused by an inner ear infection, such as labyrinthitis and neuritis, or conditions of various origins such as Meniere’s disease, acoustic neuroma and fistula.

Its origin may also be related to a lack of blood supply that can then cause a stroke. The symptoms are thus multiple such as:

  • Vomiting;
  • Severe headaches;
  • Cranial affection;
  • Or difficulty standing.

When experiencing these symptoms, the care of a specialist doctor is therefore necessary. It will thus be able to indicate a complete assessment of the person’s state of health. Multiple pathologies can be associated with dizziness, only a doctor would be able to rule on the true cause of the problem.

How does Physiotherapy intervene on the remains

Not all causes of vertigo can be treated by the method of physiotherapy even with its effectiveness. For benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and vertigo associated with an inner ear infection, the intervention of a physiotherapist may be the best alternative.

Inner ear infection and vertigo

Infection of the inner ear is one of the most common causes of vertigo. This determines a problem occurring as a result of an infection. It will be able to attack certain components of the inner ear to cause partial or total destruction. Prevention of dizziness related to an inner ear infection is almost impossible. It is always necessary to focus on a healthy lifestyle habit to limit contamination by viruses.

To manage these vertigo pathologies, Physio + Hamel is recognized as one of the renowned health professionals in Quebec. Physiotherapy interventions are known to be very effective in limiting collateral damage and loss of function. This will provide greater relief to the patient.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo

It is notable that the ears are similar to a piping system. To better understand the origin of positional vertigo, it is important to know the components of the ear. Characterized by channels well filled with liquid, it is possible that particles of the wall detach, and disperse. When the person makes a certain movement or lies down, the detachment of these crystals could indeed cause some vertigo.

Known as a benign problem, therapeutic methods can be useful for prompt treatment.
