BPPV stands for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo and is a condition that causes you to have a feeling of spinning or dizziness. Often this dizziness is the result of an inner ear problem or from changing the position of your head. Knowing the cause of this uncomfortable sensation is essential in determining the type of treatment necessary. BPPV can be treated with Physical Therapy, Chiropractic care, or by Acupuncture. The experienced therapists at Elite Spine & Sports Care of Totowa offer testing to determine the cause of BPPV and then provide therapy options for treatment. At Elite Spine & Sports Care of Totowa, we welcome the opportunity to educate Passaic County patients about BPPV and discuss how it can be treated. We offer a way of understanding and seeking treatment for BPPV in NJ.
How We Treat Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
BPPV can be caused by head and neck problems as well as by inner ear issues. The Dix-Hallpike test is used to determine whether the issue is coming from the ear canal. This test can help determine the form treatment should take. Treatment could be Physical Therapy, Chiropractic Care or Acupuncture. BPPV is rarely serious, but it can become so when it leads to falling.
Manipulation techniques may be used if treatment is sought through Chiropractic Care. Our Chiropractors at Elite Spine are experienced in these techniques and have found them to be helpful in addressing BPPV.
Exercise and Alignment are offered to relieve the discomfort caused by BPPV. The dizziness may affect you when lying down, sitting up, or when standing. The treatment offered by our Physical Therapy staff can bring enormous relief to anyone suffering from BPPV.
Another form of treatment for BPPV is Acupuncture. An experienced professional Acupuncturist can stimulate the area surrounding the ear, providing relief through realignment. The Acupuncturists at Elite Spine are certified and experienced.
