Vertigo or dizziness is the sensation of movement when there isn’t any. For example, the room feeling as though it is spinning, turning or moving.
At Fusion Physio we assess and treat for BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), a common cause of vertigo in which otoconia (crystals) within the inner ear break free and fall into the inner ear canal disrupting the balance between the ears and eyes. The symptoms you may feel if you are suffering from BPPV include but are not limited to vertigo/dizziness, nausea and/or instability.
A thorough assessment can help to identify BPPV as the cause of your symptoms and with education and treatment can help to resolve the BPPV. If BPPV does not appear to be the cause of your symptoms appropriate measures will be taken to refer you through to a suitable treatment provider.
