Repositioning for Dizziness

unnamed 9

A type of dizziness often called vertigo is more common that most people know. The organ of balance and the organ of hearing are housed in the same part of your head and are next door neighbors! Inside the organ of balance are “crystals” that may become dislodged and move within the organ to cause vertiginous symptoms.  Vertiginous symptoms are often associated with the sensation of “spinning” while one is still in place.  The symptoms are characterized by intense bursts of dizziness following head movement.  These symptoms mainly occur in adults but can also be seen in children as well.
