Simple Exercises for Dizziness Caused by BPPV

By March 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Exercise is an important component to any physical therapy program. It helps you stay actively engaged in the treatment of your condition and it provides you with a self-care strategy to help treat your current problem and, hopefully, avoid future problems.

I am often asked if there is an exercise for vertigo and dizziness. It is a problem that affects many people, and it can cause serious functional limitations.

One cause of dizziness is benign paroxsymal positional vertigo, or BPPV. It is caused by malposition of calcium deposits in the inner ear system that is responsible for helping to maintain balance. When these crystals get out of place, dizziness may result. Is there a way to put the crystals back into place?

One exercise routine to help with BPPV is called Brandt Daroff exercises. These simple exercises have been shown to help decrease the dizziness caused by BPPV. They can also be performed to prevent the onset of BPPV.

Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

May I just say what a comfort to uncover
somebody that truly understands what they are discussing
on the web. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
More people need to check this out and understand this side of the story.
I can’t believe you aren’t more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.
