What Is Vertigo Why Do We Get It
You might think vertigo is a problem thatpeople have when they're afraid of heights.or are Jimmy Stewart. Nope! Vertigo is all inyour head.specifically, your ears. Hey guys, Lissette here for Dnews. Vertigois one of the four main categories of dizziness it's a subjective experience that makesyou feel like you've lost a sense of your surroundings. But there are some very realcauses behind it in some cases, vertigo can even lead to nausea, vomiting and youreyes to twitch from side to side. There are two types of vertigo: peripheralvertigo and central vertigo. Central vertigo is a neurological problem usually in thebrain stem or cerebellum which can be caused
things like multiple sclerosis, stroke, andtumors. But the most common by far, and what we'll be focusing on here, is peripheralvertigo. Because, as a 2002 study in The British Journal of General Practice reports, at least93% of patients with vertigo, are those with peripheral vertigo.which has a lot to dowith problems in your ears. Your ears are super important for keepingyour balance and navigating the world. They help you orient yourself in it. In your innerear, there are these tiny hairs called stereocilia, that line a pouchlike structure called thesaccule. And interspersed between these hairs, is a sticky goop called glycoprotein thatholds tiny crystals in place. These guys are
made up of calcium carbonate, and move wheneverwe move, which causes them to bang up against the hairs in our ear. When the hairs sensethe crystals moving, they send signals through nerves in our ears to our brain that giveit information about our vertical and horizontal movement essentially, these crystals tellour brains where the heck we're going and help us keep our balance. On top of these nerves, crystals, and hairs,we also have fluid in our ears. Like the crystals, the fluid moves when we move and that'spicked up by our hairs which send information to our brain. Our brain uses the informationcoming from both ears to figure out whether
we're stationary or moving, and how we areoriented! Vertigo occurs when something in this systemgoes wrong. The spinning sensation or dizziness is your brain trying to figure out what theheck is going on. It's getting cues that don't make sense. And a number of differentconditions can cause this. In the cases of vestibular neuritis and labyrinthitis, partsof your ear become inflamed, usually because of a viral or bacterial infection. When oneof your two ears is inflamed particularly the ear's nerves it causes your brainto get imbalanced information so you can end up with vertigo. Meniere's disease, althoughit's not well understood, it's thought
to be caused by too much liquid in your ear,which causes the same dizzying symptoms. And researchers think migraines can cause vertigobecause they cause changes in our vascular and nervous systems, which affect parts ofour ears. Finally, one of the most common causes of vertigo benign paroxysmal positionalvertigo has to do with the crystals. Sometimes these crystals fall out of place possiblydue to a head injury or because the goop that holds them in place in the inner ear becomestoo weak. When they fall off, these crystals can end up in places where they don't belong,like the middle ear, and cause our brain to receive signals that don't make sense toit. They throw everything off!
Luckily, this one can often be fixed by simplyfollowing a set of head movements that move the crystals out of where they don't belong.Invented by John Epley in the 1980's, this noninvasive procedure can be effectivein up to 90% of these vertigo cases. Other causes of vertigo can be treated with medication,although in more extreme cases surgery may be necessary. As nasty as that sounds, some people do undergothese procedures, because vertigo can be horrible. It can last anywhere from hours to monthsat a time and can be debilitating. On top of that, just moments of Vertigo can causea lot of harm. If we lose our balance and
Will the FasciaBlaster help with vertigo
Welcome back to ask Kathleen. The numberone question we've had trending this week on hashtag ask kathleen has been:Will the fascia blaster help my vertigo? before I tell you the answer I want tomake sure that we're clear on what vertigo is. vertigo describes a symptomof spinning, a sensation of spinning either you yourself feel like you'respinning or you feel like the room is spinning so vertigo is not a disease or anillness it is a symptom like stomach ache is asymptom
you can have a stomach ache for anynumber of reasons you can have a stomachache and beconstipated in which you need a stool softener. Or you can have a stomachache because you have diarrhea in which case you need something to stop you up.you wouldn't give a stool softener to someone with diarrhea. it wouldn't help them, would it? but both people have stomach ache. So what does it depend on? How do we know if the fascia blaster is going to help? vertigo? The answer is really, quot;itdependsquot;.
so what does it depend on? I'm going to share with you my favorite little nugget of wisdom that I tell people all the timeand that is quot;THE EFFICACY OF THE TREATMENT DEPENDS ON THE ACCURACY OF THE DIAGNOSISquot; So if we get to the root of the stomachache, what's causing it, we know exactly what to give you. If we get to the root of the vertigo andwe know exactly what's causing it, then we know what we can do about it So let me tell you the answer to the question, quot;will the FasciaBlaster help my vertigo?quot;
the answer is YES, NO and MAYBE. Let me tell you the YES ones first. The FasciaBlaster will help your vertigo if it comes from cervical spine dysfunction The FasciaBlaster will not help vertigoif your vertigo is of these diagnoses: benign positional vertigo, perilymphfistula, superior canal dehiscence, labyrinthitis, or neuronitis. Those have other treatments. TheMAYBE part are 2 diagnoses where I think this has great potential. They aretwo M's: vestibular migraine and Meniere's Disease.
Vertigo caused by vestibularmigraine headache comes from the head, the brain and possibly the fascialtissues. Meniere's disease is a fluid imbalance in the inner ear and since weknow that the fascial layers connect our brain and head to our toes and that it is involved in inflammatory processes, it's possible that this tool holds greatpromise for those people as well. That is why I've opened a recruitment ofvolunteers to help me go on a journey to see whether or not this tool can help people with
vestibular migraine or Meniere's disease. Thank You! AskKathleen.
