Treating Patients Who Have Vestibular Vertigo in Webster, TX

Vestibular vertigo is a medical condition characterized by a sudden and intense sensation of spinning or dizziness. It is caused by dysfunction in the vestibular system, a complex network of structures in the inner ear responsible for maintaining balance and spatial orientation. Vestibular vertigo can significantly disrupt a person’s daily life, leading to disorientation, nausea, and impaired coordination. At Autumn Oak Speech, Voice & Hearing, we offer professional treatment for vestibular vertigo in the Webster, Texas, community.

Symptoms of Vestibular Vertigo

Individuals experiencing vestibular vertigo may exhibit various symptoms, including:

  • Vertigo
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Unsteadiness
  • Nystagmus (rapid, involuntary eye movements)
  • Sensitivity to motion

Treatment for Dizziness and Imbalance

The treatment of vestibular vertigo depends on its underlying cause. After we complete vestibular testing, our doctors will be able to properly diagnose your condition. Common treatments include:

  • Vestibular rehabilitation: A structured exercise program supervised by a physical therapist to improve balance and reduce dizziness.
  • Medications: Medications such as antiemetics and vestibular suppressants may help alleviate symptoms.
  • Canalith repositioning procedures: These maneuvers, such as the Epley maneuver, are used to treat BPPV by repositioning the displaced calcium particles within the inner ear.
  • Diet and lifestyle modifications: For conditions like Meniere’s disease, dietary changes (reduced salt intake) and lifestyle adjustments (stress management) may be recommended.
  • Surgical interventions: In some cases, surgical procedures may be necessary to alleviate symptoms or correct structural issues within the inner ear.
