Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic


Vertigo Physiotherapy​

Vertigo is often characterized as a condition whereby one feels the environment is spinning or in motion when it’s not. However, vertigo cannot fully be termed an illness. Sometimes, you may feel similar disorientation after spending long hours doing sports or exercise. But in many cases, it might be more than just that. That’s exactly why vertigo is hard to diagnose, which is the same reason you need to visit the clinic.

Sometimes when you are experiencing vertigo, it might actually be a symptom of vestibular dysfunction or a related illness. But interestingly, you do not need to worry about anything. Just visit your physiotherapist, and you’ll be fine.

A visit to Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic will not just treat your vertigo but also wipe away the fears that come with it. We have the best hands to help you treat conditions like this or other related ones. Contact us today to schedule an appointment ASAP!!!

What Can Cause Vertigo?

Vertigo mostly affects the body’s nervous systems. Here is a breakdown of how it occurs in both the central and peripheral nervous systems.

Central Nervous System : This happens when there’s a dysfunction in the brainstem or cerebrum. The CNS is in charge of maintaining balance. But when it’s affected, it can lead to spinning effects or make you feel like wanting to fly or swing.

Peripheral Nervous System : This happens when there’s dysfunction in the vestibular systems. And since the inner ear, which is also responsible for maintaining balance, will be affected, hence the vertigo sensation.

The most common type of peripheral cause of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BBPV), which accounts for over 30% of peripheral vertigo. We’ll discuss that later.

Other health conditions that can lead to vertigo include; 

  • Stroke 
  • Vestibular neuritis
  • Migraines 
  • Meniere’s disease

Symptoms Of Vertigo

What Exactly is BPPV?

BPPV is common among older adults who are over 70 years of age. Though, younger people do experience it too, especially women. Some of the common signs of this condition include triggers of body spinning, a faint feeling, giddiness, irregular movements of the body or only the head, etc. Luckily, you can only experience that for a few minutes every once in a while.

You can do certain things to get rid of BBPV while at home, but if it persists, visiting Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic should be the next step you take.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo BPPV is a very common type of vertigo. It is caused when a small crystal in the inner ear, otherwise known as the otoconial, adjusts from its normal position. This causes the whole body to be imbalanced, resulting in vertigo. The otoconial crystals are responsible for telling the human brain about geography and location. But in a situation when it is displaced from its normal place, the brain becomes dull and unable to sense geography.

What are the Home Remedies for BPPV?

Some of these simple home practices might actually be helpful in overcoming BPPV.


Once you visit Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic, we will examine you thoroughly before preparing a personalized treatment plan tailored to your condition. During the examination, we will identify the root cause of your vertigo and other contributing factors. Our physiotherapist will also ask relevant questions, such as symptoms and medical history, before proceeding to design a treatment schedule.

Normally, for vertigo, which is sometimes caused by vestibular dysfunction, your physiotherapist will administer some therapies, which may include certain sets of exercises, patient education, and other therapeutic modalities that will help heal your condition as soon as possible.

In fact, it has been proven that over 80% of patients get treated easily for vertigo. But that’s actually when you visit the right clinic. At Milestone Physiotherapy Clinic, our physiotherapists are very good in this regard and will end your vertigo nightmare in just one or two visits. We offer you the best treatments in the entire Edmonton.
