Needing vertigo treatment in Sydney? Vertigo can result from head or neck injuries and migraines …

Experiencing Vertigo is a decidedly uncomfortable condition, which, most often, involves periods of dizziness that can last from 20 seconds to a minute. Vertigo can be accompanied by nausea, headaches, disorientating eye movements, sweating, and hearing impairments1. Basically, your sensory perception of the world is askew and this affects your sense of balance. Awareness of vertigo in Australia was heightened by the experiences of champion golfer, Jason Day, during a recent US Open tournament. Physical therapists and chiropractors were on hand to help Jason through this, sometimes, debilitating experience.

Vertigo Causes

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) is one of the most prevalent causes for the condition2. In this instance, clumps of minute calcium particles build up inside the canals of the inner ear. The inner ear is involved in our brain’s perception of our physical movements relative to gravity. We understand the role of the inner ear and balance through research into things like sea sickness. BPPV frequently occurs in association with ageing but is not confined to older human beings. Meniere’s Disease is another catalyst for vertigo, as is Vestibular Neuritis, these are both inner ear disorders.
