One thing that often goes untreated, and has a severe impact on one’s quality of life, is BPPV. Otherwise known as vertigo.
Symptoms of vertigo include dizziness and a general sense of imbalance without any sort of normal explanation such as abrupt repeated movements. While seemingly minor and non-life threatening, vertigo impacts your daily life in unexpected ways.
It makes you more injury-prone when operating equipment, walking up stairs, or simply moving around your home, and if you’re driving or doing anything similar, it can lead to accidents that are life-threatening. As an athlete, you’re even more prone to experiencing serious issues since you’re performing intense movements fairly often, and if vertigo strikes, you can easily hurt yourself without any sort of warning.
This is treatable. It’s simply caused by crystals forming in the ear. The ear is a core part of your body’s overall ability to balance, and that tiny change in its physical structure throws off your balance considerably.
Treating vertigo is typically done via canalith repositioning.
At Expert Manual Therapy we offer professional and comprehensive canalith repositioning in Austin for patients from every walk of life.
How Does it Work?
Our canalith repositioning services might sound a bit daunting or invasive, but it’s actually a very simple procedure that doesn’t involve any sort of instruments, poking, prodding, or anything else.
Canalith repositioning focuses on using basic, targeted, head movements to reposition the inner structure of the ear and relieve your vertigo symptoms.
This is performed by a professional manual therapist, and you more or less just relax while they perform the procedure. This only takes about 15 minutes, too. So, you don’t have to worry about setting aside long periods of time in your schedule to alleviate your symptoms.
Canalith repositioning almost immediately relieves your vertigo symptoms. Even if the problem has been ongoing for quite some time, within seconds to a few minutes of starting the procedure, you will notice a difference. By the time it’s done, your symptoms will have subsided completely.
This will allow you to balance normally, stop feeling dizzy, and generally reclaim your life. You’ll be safer while performing everyday activities, maintain a normal comfort level since you’re not constantly dizzy, and generally feel a lot better.
