Vertigo refers to the sensation of spinning or whirling that occurs as a result of a disruption in your balance (vestibular) system. Vertigo may be used to describe feelings of dizziness, lightheadedness, faintness, and unsteadiness. Vertigo usually occurs as a result of a disorder in the vestibular system (structures of the inner ear, the vestibular nerve, brainstem, and cerebellum).
Common triggers of vertigo or dizziness include rolling over in bed, getting out of bed, and lifting your head to look up.
Please call to make an appointment with Andrew McIntyre for treatment of vertigo, particularly Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).
