• One of the causes of dizziness can be Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

    You may have heard your doctor mention this condition to you while examining you, but you’re unsure as to what it is. It is a condition that causes short lived bouts of vertigo (dizziness). 25% of cases of vertigo are as a result of BPPV.

    Symptoms include:

    • Unexpected bouts of vertigo
    • Nausea
    • Difficulty focusing with your eyes
    • Certain head movements provoke dizziness
    • Dizziness last up to 1 minute

    The Physiotherapist at Advanced Physio West will apply precise movements and exercises that will gently relocate the crystals to a different area of the inner ear that is less sensitive and does not provoke dizziness. The exercises for BPPV  have a success rate of up to 90%.
