Your Calgary Choice for
Vertigo Treatment!

Evolve Chiropractic & Wellness is pleased to offer Vertigo Treatment. Vertigo is a type of dizziness where you feel like the world is spinning. Nausea and vomiting are common, and you may feel unsteady. Vertigo can have many causes, but the most common cause is from a disturbance of the vestibular system, the part of the inner ear and brain that controls balance and maintains eye focus during movement. Special sensors in the inner ear send messages back to the brain that helps you maintain balance and focus. Common causes for vestibular system problems include illness or disease, certain medications, head trauma (e.g., car accidents, falls, impact sports), ear infections (neuritis, labyrinthitis), aging, stroke, and brain injury. Often vertigo is eased by lying down and made worse by sitting up or moving. It is not the same as simply feeling faint, dizzy, or lightheaded when getting up. Vertigo can be very disabling.

How can your Evolve physiotherapist help?

Physiotherapists specifically trained to assess and treat vestibular problems are highly skilled at treating vertigo caused by vestibular problems. Research demonstrates vestibular rehabilitation improves balance, decreases dizziness/vertigo symptoms, and increases general activity levels. Getting an accurate diagnosis is important for effective treatment. Often improvement or complete resolution of symptoms can be achieved within 6-8 weeks.

If your condition is suitable for vestibular rehabilitation, your physiotherapist may include one or all of the following:

  • Balance retraining exercises
  • Specific exercises for the vestibular system
  • Special repositioning maneuver for vertigo caused by the crystals in the inner ear becoming stuck
  • Monitor progress and continually challenge the vestibular, visual and balance systems
  • A home program of individualized vestibular exercises
