Dizziness / Vertigo / Concussion

Dizziness / Vertigo / Concussion in Calgary

 

Falling due to dizziness and losing one’s balance is one of the primary reasons many adults are admitted to the hospital. If you are going through the same, our vertigo clinic in Calgary can help you feel better.

Our brain coordinates information from the eye, inner ear, and body position sensors to maintain our body balance. Then it sends signals to the muscular system to react. Three primary systems contribute to our sense of balance – the visual system, the inner ear and a series of canals that include small hair cells and fluid.

This whole system is fundamentally involved with linear motion and angular acceleration. The third one is body position sensors. There are situated everywhere but majorly in our palms, soles of our feet, and the skull base.

Vertigo is the type of dizziness when one feels like the world is spinning. Vomiting and nausea are common, and one might even feel unsteady. Vertigo aggravates when you are lying down or sitting up or moving. It is not the same as feeling dizzy, faint, or lightheaded while you get up. Vertigo can be disabling and can cause many problems while performing your day-to-day tasks.

A concussion is a traumatic brain injury that can cause a lot of trouble for you. It can impact your brain tissues and change the chemical balance of your brain. A concussion can cause long-term and short-term problems like physical, cognitive, and behavioural symptoms if you have a concussion. Every concussion is taken as a serious injury by the health care expert; if you have suffered a head injury, visit our concussion clinic in Calgary to receive first-rate care from qualified physiotherapists.
