Dizziness & Vertigo

Vertigo is a type of dizziness. Typically, the person experiences an abnormal perception of a spinning motion. This is usually caused by abnormal function of the vestibular and oculomotor systems. The person may also experience nausea and vomiting along with poor balance. The main cause of vertigo is BPPV ( benign paroxysmal positional vertigo), Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis and Labyrinthitis. Concussion and/or a vestibular migraines can also cause vertigo.
A functional neurological evaluation can determine if the vertigo is central or peripheral and what care is appropriate.
