Get Rid Of Vertigo

A vertigo attack is scary!

When you understand what is happening and what you can do this takes away the fear.

Most vertigo is caused by displaced crystals in your inner ear. A prior history of a whiplash injury, or a head injury, increases your risk of having vertigo. As we get older our risk increases as well.

The best way to figure out if your vertigo is BPPV (Benign Paraxysmal Positional Vertigo) is to get imaging!

Over half of vertigo attacks are a posterior canal problem and the Epley Maneuver is the most successful treatment.

If your vertigo is coming form a different canal imaging is necessary to determine the side and which canal the crystal is displaced.

What is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo?

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV

BPPV is the most common cause of vertigo and it is most commonly caused by a loose otolith crystal in our balance system or semicircular canals.

This video shows what is happening when there is a problem with our vestibular or balance system.

Did You Know...

There is accurate imaging to test for vertigo!

To determine if your dizziness or vertigo is coming from your inner ear (a crystal displacement) different quick body or head maneuvers are done to challenge your balance or vestibular system. The most common test used in diagnosing BPPV or vertigo is the Dix-Hallpike test. This test position, as well as other tests, helps your medical practitioner determine the presence of BPPV. Imaging while performing the Dix-Hallpike test can tell us if you have BPPV and which side and canal is involved.

A vertigo attack occurs when our head changes position quickly. Getting up or lying down in bed, turning your head or body quickly, or rolling in bed are common position changes that trigger an attack. When you experience vertigo your eyes start to twitch. This is called nystagmus. Video Oculography is the most sensitive imaging test to diagnose vertigo.

Symptoms of Vertigo

Vertigo is typically felt as 'the world is spinning but I am ok' while spatial dizziness, where you feel that you do not know your place in the world but your surroundings are stable, is a dizziness more commonly coming from a neck problem.

When we experience vertigo we tend to move more slowly and limit our head movements. This can increase our neck and shoulder tension.

Dizziness can also be caused by a vision problem or a neck problem. Testing determines where the vertigo is coming from.

Why should you get tested?

If it doesn't clear within 24 to 48 hours it is time to get tested and treated by an experienced vertigo practitioner.

If my vertigo does not get better what do I do next?

Get tested! Video Oculography is the most sensitive test to determine the presence of BPPV or crystal displacement. This imaging allows us to determine the side, and even what part of the canal your crystal is displaced.

Who should I see to get tested?

The most sensitive test is Video Oculography. This is more accurate for BPPV than a VNG (Video Nystography) normally performed in an Audiology or ENT office. With accurate data the right treatment protocol can be used increasing success. Find a clinic that has Video Oculography Imaging. Get the best test sooner than later!

Here are what some of our patients are saying.

After struggling with vertigo and dizziness for many years, I received a referral for Cornerstone PT. I was skeptical at first after the ENT was unable to help me. They used equipment to narrow down the cause of my dizziness and then were able to help fix the problem. My quality of life improved greatly!

David, skeptic to believer

I began treatment for vestibular therapy specific for BPPV, as well as complications with my neck. My vertigo has dissipated and my headaches have significantly decreased. I highly recommend Cornerstone which is filled with the most kind, welcoming, and knowledgeable staff.

Savannah, chronic vertigo

I was very pleased with the technology and the knowledge that the Cornerstone Team had when determining how to treat my vertigo and not just guess. As I continued my last session the vertigo had completely ceased!

Thank you, Cornerstone for giving me the opportunity to return to serve in the community.

Eric, got back his life

Vertigo is very treatable!

Get started with an evaluation!

The Cornerstone Physical Therapy Doctors begin with Video Oculography Imaging to determine the presence of BPPV and the location.

The evaluation also includes treatment based on the test findings.

The cost of the evaluation and treatment includes Video Oculography Imaging and is 99$. If you choose to use your health insurance the cost of Video Oculography Imaging is an additional 49$ with your insurance co-pay.
