The vestibular system is a sensory system located on each side of the skull in the inner ear. This system provides our brains with information about motion, head position, and spatial awareness and orientation. It also helps keep us balanced and stabilizes our head and body during movement. When the system is disturbed or disrupted, you can experience vertigo, dizziness and balance problems.
Although they have very similar symptoms, there are some specific differences between the two. Dizziness is used to describe sensations such as lightheadedness, disorientation and unsteadiness. On the other hand, vertigo occurs when the surrounding environment is spinning, but not the person. For the latter, concussions and inner ear damage are the main causes.
While vestibular therapy is the best course of action, other methods can help with these conditions. These can include lifestyle changes, prevention methods, and, if needed, medications. Other treatments, such as acupuncture and psychotherapy, can prove helpful. We’ll tailor your treatment plan so you get the best results.
