Did you know our physical therapist Dr. Nicole Haas can treat vertigo issues? If you (or a friend or family member) have ever had a bout of severe dizziness or vertigo that occurs with positional changes or head turns, you know how scary and debilitating it can be. But did you know that it can often be quickly diagnosed and treated by physical therapy, and that over 90% of patients can be successfully treated with a simple maneuver?
With proper diagnosis and identification of the type of BPPV (benign positional paroxysmal vertigo), treatment often takes one visit, and then your world can quickly be righted (literally) again. Dr. Haas is well versed in treatment of BPPV, and she can quickly hone in on the problem to help get rid of it asap.
Curious what the signs and symptoms of BPPV are? If these sound familiar, she can help…
- Dizziness or sensation that surroundings are moving and spinning (vertigo) which occurs with positional changes or turning of your head, and often resolves within minutes
- Loss of balance, especially when turning head or changing directions
- Underlying nausea and/ or vomiting in conjunction with above symptoms
