Vertigo Treatment with Simple Exercises BPPV Ask Jo
Hey everybody it's Jo. Do you everhave that feeling that the room is spinning and you're not unk? You probably have Vertigo,but the positional vertigo which is benign. So it's really important to go to your to get it checked out if something's going on because it could be a symptom of somethingmore serious. If you've been diagnosed with BPPV, I'm gonna show you some exercises toget that a little bit better for ya. So first exercise is a BrandtDaroff exercise. Basicallyyou're gonna do this five times, two times a dayeach position there's gonna be a30 second hold between. The first movement you wanna do is go down to one side and turnyour head at a 45 degree angle so it's just
going to be going down like this, my head'sat a 45 degree angle, and I'm upholding this for 30 seconds. You might get a little dizzy,feel a little yucky, but if you hold it for the 30 seconds the dizziness will probablygo away. Then you're going to come back up into the seated position, wait 30 more seconds. Again you're probably going to be a little dizzy, that' spinning's going on, but it should go away. And then go to the other side againwith your head at a 45 degree angle holding that for 30 seconds. Now the couch that I'mon is a little bit squishy you probably want something a little bit firmer, but if youcan hold that 45 degree angle of your head while you're lying down that's fine. Thenyou're gonna come back up for that final 30 second
hold. Doing that five times, two times a day.The next thing I wanna show you is some gaze stabilization exercises. And this just retrainsyour brain to not have that dizziness when you move your head quickly. So there's somepretty simple exercises, the first one is actually just moving your eyes back and forth.So your just gonna look side to side, a nice smooth motion, ten times back and forth. Afteryou've gone back and forth, you're gonna look up and down still trying to keep your headin one spot. Now remember this might make you a little dizzy and if it does that's okayit's reproducing those symptoms, but the more you do the less it'll be. Then looking atone corner and back down to the other corner,
going up and down, and then the opposite cornerup and down. After you done the moving the eyes, now you're going to actually move yourhead. Take a spot that you can focus on you can use your finger you can put somethingon the wall like an quot;Xquot; or an quot;Aquot; or any letter of the alphabet that you want, but now you'reactually moving your head so you're focus on one spot. Keep your eyes on that one spotmoving your head side to side, then moving it up and down, trying to keep your eyes onthat spot the whole time it's gonna wanna move, but really try to focus on that spot,then going at an angle, one way and going at an angle the other way. Trying to keepyour eyes focus on that one spot the whole
time. If you have any questions leave themin the comment section. And if you'd like to check out my other tutorials go to AskJo Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and remember, Be safe. Have fun. And I hope youfeel better soon.
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 egories 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 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 usuallythebrain 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 studyThe British Journal of General Practice reports, at least93% of patients with vertigo, are those with peripheral vertigo.which has a lot to dowith problemsyour ears. Your ears are super important for keepingyour balance and navigating the world. They help you orient yourselfit. 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 crystalsplace. These guys are
made up of calcium carbonate, and move wheneverwe move, which causes them to bang up against the hairsour ear. When the hairs sensethe crystals moving, they send signals through nervesour 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 fluidour 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 somethingthis 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 liquidyour ear,which causes the same dizzying symptoms. And researchers think migraines can cause vertigobecause they cause changesour 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 themplacethe inner ear becomestoo weak. When they fall off, these crystals can end upplaces 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 Epleythe 1980's, this noninvasive procedure can be effectivein up to 90% of these vertigo cases. Other causes of vertigo can be treated with mediion,althoughmore 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
