How To Choose The Best Vertigo Exercises

By John F. Petersone

The sensation of movement of yourself or your environment is termed vertigo and is one of the most common reasons that people visit a doctor. Many conditions can cause this dizziness or vertigo feeling. For example you could have light headedness or a more significant condition like a tumor. Among the most common causes that is called benign positional vertigo also known as bppv. This article will discuss treatment of this type of vertigo with vertigo exercises.

Unfortunately, it is common that this form of vertigo is often treated with medication. While medication may assist in decreasing the symptoms of the vertigo or associated nausea it does not address the root cause of the problem. We will discuss the cause of this type of vertigo, why drugs are not an effective solution and the role of vertigo exercises in your recovery.

This type of vertigo called benign positional vertigo is believed to be caused by debris or particles that become loose in our balance sensors. These balance sensors are called semicircular canals and are located in our inner ear. They are filled with a fluid like substance and our movement stimulates tiny hair like receptors that send messages to our brain to let us know about our movement. The loose debris disrupt the messages to our brain and we may feel an increase sensation of movement or the feeling of vertigo.

The loose particles must be moved to a different place to fix this problem. This cannot be done with drugs or medication, which will only depress your nervous system. This will result in you feeling less dizzy or nauseous because your nervous system has been depressed but the underlying cause of the problem has not been resolved. So even though you may symptomatically feel a little better with decreased symptoms the cause of the problem has not been rectified.

The best and safest way to correct this problem is vertigo exercises. Sadly, many people are given incorrect exercises or informed about the correct exercises in a wrong manner. It is usually for people to be instructed to do habituation exercises. These exercises focus on strongly stimulating the balance organs so they can adapt to strong stimulation, therefore your system hopefully wont feel so dizzy. This approach once again is not really correcting the problem, never the less it is a non drug option. This habituation exercise should be the second choice of vertigo exercises for people, unfortunately they are incorrectly used as the first option.

There is a better solution to this vertigo. There are some vertigo exercises designed to move the particles to a safer area of the semicircular canals where they don’t disrupt the receptor so much. Now this is a treatment that addresses the cause of the problem, the loose particles, and not just masking the symptoms. The exercises if done properly are safe and very effective.

Symptoms of vertigo can be fixed! To find out how,visit author John F. Peterson’s benign positional vertigo exercises website and take a look at his acclaimed book, The Vertigo Cure.
