Vertigo / Dizziness

Vertigo is a sensation of spinning that is described as dizziness.

There are 2 types typically recognized:

  • Peripheral
  • Central

Peripheral vertigo causes include:

  • Benign positional vertigo
  • Medication induced
  • Head injury induced
  • Neuronitis
  • Labyrinthitis

Central vertigo causes include:

  • Vascular disease
  • Medication induced
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Stroke complications
  • Vestibular migraines

I include a third type that I see commonly in my clinic, which is cervicogenic vertigo.

There are 4 types of dizziness:

  • Vertigo
  • Disequilibrium
  • Presyncope
  • Light-headedness

Dizziness typically is a mis-match of information between the eyes, ears, cerebellum (brain), jaw, and gut. 

The goal with treatment is to assess the complexity of the situation and create strategies to correct and or alleviate the symptoms.
