Understanding Vertigo and Dizziness: Causes, Symptoms, and Types

Vertigo and dizziness are common symptoms that can be caused by various underlying conditions. Understanding the causes, symptoms, and types of vertigo and dizziness can help individuals recognise and seek appropriate treatment. Vertigo refers to a spinning sensation or a feeling that you or your surroundings are moving when there is no actual movement. Dizziness, on the other hand, is a general term that encompasses sensations of light-headedness, unsteadiness, or a loss of balance.
There are different types and causes of vertigo and dizziness, including:

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV):

BPPV is one of the most common causes of vertigo and occurs when small calcium crystals in the inner ear become dislodged and stimulate the inner ear balance organs inappropriately. This can lead to sudden episodes of vertigo triggered by specific head movements.

Vestibular Migraine

Vestibular migraines are migraines that are accompanied by vertigo or dizziness. These migraines may or may not be associated with headache pain and can cause significant disruptions in balance and daily activities.

Acoustic Neuroma

Acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous tumour that develops on the vestibular nerve, which connects the inner ear to the brain. It can cause vertigo, dizziness, hearing loss, and tinnitus.

Meniere's Disease

Meniere’s disease is a disorder of the inner ear that affects balance and hearing. It is characterised by recurring episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and a feeling of fullness in the affected ear.

Labyrinthitis

Labyrinthitis is an inflammation of the inner ear, often caused by a viral or bacterial infection. It can lead to severe vertigo, hearing loss, and ringing in the ears.

Medications & Other Medical Conditions

Certain medications, such as those used to treat high blood pressure or seizures, can cause dizziness as a side effect. Additionally, conditions like low blood pressure, anaemia, and anxiety disorders may contribute to dizziness and light-headedness.

It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional, such as our team of osteopaths or an otolaryngologist, for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment for your specific type of vertigo or dizziness. Contact us today and we’ll get you back to feeling you in no time.

The Role of Osteopathic Treatment in Relieving Vertigo and Dizziness

Osteopathic treatment can play a significant role in relieving vertigo and dizziness. Osteopaths are trained in a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the musculoskeletal system’s structure and function, including the balance mechanisms in the inner ear and the cervical spine.
When it comes to vertigo and dizziness, osteopathic treatment aims to address the underlying causes of these symptoms. By using gentle manual techniques, osteopaths can help restore proper alignment, optimise the function of the vestibular system, and improve overall balance.
Some ways in which osteopathy can contribute to the relief of vertigo and dizziness include:
Cranial osteopathy techniques can be used to assess and address any imbalances or dysfunctions in the cranial bones and associated structures. By gently manipulating these structures, osteopaths aim to restore optimal fluid dynamics and enhance the function of the inner ear, which can help alleviate vertigo and dizziness.
The cervical spine (neck) plays a crucial role in maintaining balance and posture. Osteopathic manipulation of the cervical spine can help restore proper alignment and mobility, relieving any restrictions or imbalances that may contribute to vertigo and dizziness.
Osteopaths may prescribe specific exercises that target the vestibular system, which plays a key role in maintaining balance. These exercises aim to improve balance, coordination, and gaze stability, reducing the frequency and severity of vertigo episodes.
Poor posture can affect the alignment of the spine and disrupt the balance mechanisms in the inner ear. Osteopaths can provide guidance on proper posture and exercises to improve postural alignment, reducing the occurrence of vertigo and dizziness.
Stress and tension can exacerbate vertigo and dizziness. Osteopaths may recommend relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing exercises or meditation, to help manage stress and promote overall well-being.
Osteopaths can provide guidance on lifestyle modifications that can support the management of vertigo and dizziness. This may include recommendations for diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, and stress management techniques.
It’s important to note that the effectiveness of osteopathic treatment for vertigo and dizziness can vary depending on the individual and the underlying cause of the symptoms. Osteopathy offers a natural and holistic approach to addressing the root causes of vertigo and dizziness, providing relief and improving overall well-being. Suffering from vertigo?

How We Treat Common Vertigo & Dizziness Conditions

There are several common conditions that can cause vertigo and dizziness. Each condition requires specific treatment approaches to effectively manage the symptoms. Some of the common vertigo and dizziness conditions include:
BPPV is often treated using repositioning maneuvers, such as the Epley maneuver or the Semont maneuver, to reposition the dislodged calcium crystals within the inner ear. Osteopathic treatment can support these maneuvers and help address any underlying musculoskeletal imbalances that may contribute to BPPV.
Treatment for vestibular migraines may involve a combination of medications to prevent migraines and manage symptoms during an episode. Osteopathic treatment can complement medical management by addressing musculoskeletal imbalances and promoting overall balance.
Labyrinthitis is often treated with medications to manage symptoms and control any underlying infection. Osteopathic treatment can help improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and optimise inner ear function, aiding in the recovery process.
Meniere’s disease treatment may involve medications to manage symptoms, dietary modifications to reduce fluid retention, and lifestyle changes to minimize triggers. Osteopathic treatment can support symptom management and address any musculoskeletal imbalances that may contribute to the condition.
Cervicogenic dizziness is a type of dizziness that originates from the cervical spine. Osteopathic treatment focuses on addressing musculoskeletal imbalances in the neck and upper back, which can help alleviate symptoms and improve overall balance.
POTS is a condition characterised by an abnormal increase in heart rate upon standing, leading to dizziness and light-headedness. Treatment for POTS may involve lifestyle modifications, medications, and physical therapy. Osteopathic treatment can complement these approaches by addressing musculoskeletal imbalances and promoting overall balance and well-being.
Treatment for vertigo and dizziness is highly individualised based on the specific condition and its underlying causes. Consulting with our experienced osteopaths is crucial for an accurate diagnosis and developing a personalised treatment plan.

Lifestyle Modifications to Prevent & Manage Vertigo and Dizziness

In addition to professional treatment, making certain lifestyle modifications can help prevent and manage vertigo and dizziness. These modifications aim to reduce triggers, promote overall well-being, and support the effectiveness of treatment. Here are some lifestyle modifications that can be beneficial:

Stay Hydrated

Proper hydration is essential for maintaining overall health and reducing the risk of dehydration, which can contribute to dizziness. Drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day and avoid excessive caffeine and alcohol intake.

Avoid Triggers

Identify and avoid any specific triggers that may exacerbate your vertigo or dizziness. These triggers can vary depending on the underlying condition but may include certain foods, stress, lack of sleep, or environmental factors.

Ensure Proper Lighting

Adequate lighting can improve spatial awareness and reduce dizziness. Avoid environments with excessive glare or dim lighting that can affect your ability to maintain balance and stability.

Practice Stress Management

Stress can worsen vertigo and dizziness symptoms. Engage in stress management techniques such as deep breathing exercises, meditation, yoga, or engaging in hobbies and activities that help you relax and unwind.

Maintain a Consistent Sleep Schedule

Poor sleep quality or disrupted sleep patterns can contribute to dizziness and imbalance. Establish a consistent sleep routine and create a sleep-friendly environment to promote restful sleep.

Modify Your Diet

Certain dietary modifications may help reduce symptoms. For example, reducing salt intake can be beneficial for individuals with Meniere’s disease. Additionally, avoiding foods that trigger migraines or other specific conditions may help manage vertigo and dizziness.

It’s important to note that lifestyle modifications alone may not completely resolve vertigo and dizziness. Consulting with our qualified osteopaths, who will assess your specific condition and develop an individualised treatment plan, is essential for achieving optimal results. Remember, everyone’s experience with vertigo and dizziness is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another. Our friendly team will educate you on effective strategies to prevent and manage vertigo and dizziness and improve your overall quality of life.
