Mobile Physiotherapy: Your Solution to Vertigo On-the-Go

Experiencing a sensation that you or everything around you is spinning can be more than just unsettling—it can disrupt your life. Interestingly, a significant number of adults, especially those above 65, have faced vertigo at least once. However, vertigo isn’t a condition itself but a symptom, commonly stemming from inner ear disturbances.

Symptoms Associated with Vertigo Include:

  1. Sensation of spinning
  2. Dizziness
  3. Vision impairment
  4. Loss of balance, leading to falls
  5. Sensitivity to motion
  6. Ear ringing
  7. Decreased hearing ability
  8. A feeling of ear congestion

Frequent Triggers of Vertigo

  1. BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo): Brief yet intense episodes of vertigo due to the dislocation of ear canal crystals, triggered by specific head movements.

  2. Viral Neuritis and Labyrinthitis: Continuous vertigo arising from viral inflammation in the ear.

  3. Meniere’s Disease: Recurring severe vertigo episodes accompanied by auditory fluctuations, caused by fluid accumulation in the inner ear.

  4. Acoustic Neuroma: Balance and vertigo problems due to a benign tumor on the cranial nerve.

How Mobile Physiotherapy Brings Relief

  • Particle Repositioning Manoeuvres (PRM): This technique effectively addresses BPPV by meticulously relocating the dislodged crystals in the inner ear, often resolving vertigo episodes.
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT): A specialized form of physiotherapy designed to help the brain adapt to inner ear changes, enhancing balance and walking stability through targeted exercises.
