Vertigo is an all-too-common, very debilitating condition that affects people of all ages. Vertigo is the perception or feeling of movement despite being motionless.
It is triggered by changes in head or body position, thus simply looking over your shoulder can cause the room to spin. This kind of dizziness is often caused by a disruption of crystals in the semicircular canals of the inner ear and is termed benign positional paroxysmal vertigo (BPPV). TAG physical therapists are trained to identify whether or not the dizziness is due to BPPV and provide relief. We treat the vertigo with the Epley Maneuver, designed to release the trapped crystals; then teach you how to perform this maneuver on yourself at home. You do not have to live with vertigo, we can help!
