Doc Talk #65 – Vertigo

 

 

Vertigo is something that seems to have been afflicting a large number of Vegreville and area residents in the last couple of weeks.

We talked about what vertigo is and some common causes including labyrinthitis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and Meniere’s disease.

We made reference to the fabulous dizziness and balance website, which includes some great resources including information about the Epley manoeuvre and home treatments for vertigo including Cooksey-Cawthorne vestibular rehabilitation exercises.
