Do you ever get dizzy when you roll over in bed, bend over or turn your head fast?

If so, you might be suffering from a condition called Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV.  BPPV is the most common cause of vertigo which is a false sense of spinning.  This is a benign condition of your inner ear where a crystal that is typically embedded in the base of your inner ear breaks free and floats around one of the three cannels in your inner ear.  These calcium deposits or crystals are not supposed be floating around in your inner ear and they send false signals to your brain making you feel dizzy or give you a sensation of spinning.  If you think you might have vertigo, see your doctor and they can refer you to a PT or Chiropractor who can correct your problem in a few short sessions.

Please do not feel you have to live with this condition and if you are currently taking medicine, there are other ways to treat it conservatively.  There are also some simple exercises your PT can teach you to help strengthen your inner ear or otherwise known as your vestibular system.

Please come by and visit us at RightSPINE, you might be surprised as to other conditions physical therapy and chiropractors can treat conservatively without medicine.
