Treatment and management of vertigo depends on what’s causing it. Thus, after a thorough examination the otorhinolaryngologist/neurootologist will determine the etiology of the vertigo and suggest your treatment options.
Vestibular rehabilitation. This is a type of physical therapy aimed at helping strengthen the vestibular system. The function of the vestibular system is to send signals to the brain about head and body movements relative to gravity.
Finally, there are some exercises that help those who suffer from vertigo to develop a kind of tolerance and resistance to it. These exercises should begin as soon as possible, even while you are still in bed. They are done at least three times a day and should not last more than 5 minutes all together. Furthermore, they should be performed in groups (A or B or C or D), depending on the phase of your recovery.
Management of Vertigo
Some exercises that help the brain tolerate the vertiginous symptoms:
Eye movement exercises.
Head tilting exercises (Hamid Exercises)
Core rotational exercises.
Acupuncture alone or in conjunction with other therapeutic protocols may improve dizziness and nausea. This holistic therapy stimulates the nervous system and causes the release of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical changes influence the body’s homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being. Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress (Hui 2010), thus helping alleviate symptoms of vertigo.
