The Best Vestibular Care
The cause of Vertigo can be over-looked with traditional testing. In many cases, vestibular dizziness is attributed to a small structure of the inner ear called the "Vestibular Organ". The vestibular organ processes the senses controlling balance and eye movements. When they become imbalanced as in the crystal displacement, it can lead to dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, vision problems, nausea, among other disruptions to your daily life.
Many patients are diagnosed with "Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo" which is caused by an imbalance of the inner ear, and your treatment options can be discussed with your doctor. Other common causes are: labyrinthitis(inflammation) and vestibular neuritis (swollen nerve), secondaryendolymphatichydrops (autoimmune disorder) and perilymph fistula (tear or defect). Vestibular disorders also include superiorcanal dehiscence (causing hearing and balance problems), acoustic neuroma (tumor in the inner ear), ototoxicity (poisoning in the inner ear), and enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome (enlargement or deformity of the inner ear). All of which are treatable illnesses either medicinally, therapeutically, surgically or in a combination.
At DUNDAS 427 PHYSIOTHERAPY our compassionate staff and licensed physiotherapists are here to listen and help identify the issues with research-based science such as infrared goggles that track eye movement which is indication due to the fact that the eye reflexes and vestibular organ are closely connected.
