As trippy as it sounds, physiotherapy can help your world to stop tripping a little. Because let’s face it, that’s not the kind of trippy experience you want. The sensation of vertigo is a symptom, not a disease. Vertigo is a sort of dizziness that is frequently described as feeling like the world is spinning around you or that you are whirling within it, especially as you move around. Everyone can experience vertigo. Middle ear pathology is most frequently the culprit in younger people. A thorough assessment is required in the elderly due to the risk of falls and the difficulties they can cause. Vertigo must be distinguished from other causes of imbalance or vertigo, as well as from central and peripheral vertigo causes, in order to be diagnosed.
Symptoms of Vertigo
People with vertigo generally describe it as feeling like they are:
- Pulled to one direction
Other Symptoms That May Accompany Vertigo Include:
- Feeling nauseated
- Abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus)

The duration of these symptoms can range between a few seconds to a few hours and may come and go.
