Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is a type of vertigo that is caused by a problem in the inner ear. Symptoms of BPPV are the feeling that you are spinning and/or that the world is spinning around you. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we are a provider of comprehensive physical and rehabilitation therapy with specialists who are specifically trained to help patients with balance and dizziness disorders such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. We understand how debilitating feelings of dizziness and spinning can be, affecting all areas of your life at any point during the day. By helping patients find relief from BPPV, we help them better function during the day – ultimately gaining a better quality of life.
Inside the inner ear, calcium stones are present to help you keep your balance. These stones are designed to move around when you turn or move your head, but inflammation or infection can stop these stones from moving. When the stones do not move with your own movement, the brain receives a false signal and causes vertigo. The feeling of dizziness is much more than the “light headed’ feeling that sometimes occurs when you stand up quickly. BPPV can be bad enough that it makes you feel nauseous and vomit, and also finding it hard to stand or walk without falling over. These severe symptoms can drastically affect your life, especially if you care for young children who need to be picked up, or if you are involved in a sporting even that requires quick, constant movement. At Sovereign Rehabilitation we deliver rehabilitation therapy that is specific to patients who suffer from BPPV.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, our goal is to make your life feel better. We understand that illnesses and conditions can affect every area of your life and hamper the way you feel and what you are able to accomplish.
