Vertigo Attacks: Finding Your Balance
The rise in the number of people seeking help for vertigo is largely attributed to greater awareness and an ageing population. Vertigo refers to the sensation of the head spinning and an episode can last for less than a minute to hours or days.
Do You Experience Vertigo?
Those who experience vertigo usually associates the experience to a sensation of spinning. This occurs either in their head or the environment around them. Things seem to move when there is no actual movement. Nausea, vomiting, anxiety and fear are some of the sensations one can experience alongside the attacks.
It is important to understand the cause of vertigo attacks and get a diagnosis from a professional especially if it is persistent and recurrent.
Physical Therapy and vestibular rehabilitation can benefit those who suffer from vertigo and imbalance.
