Central Vertigo

What it is - Vertigo caused by disease or injury to the brain, including:

  • Head Injuries

  • Infections or Encephelopathy

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Migraines

  • Mal de Debarquement

Symptoms - Episodes come on without warning and last longer than peripheral causes of vertigo like BPPV and meinere’s disease.

Diagnosis - Because the causes vastly range, it is important to have a thorough neurological evaluation performed. 

Our approach - Those who suffer from central vertigo are excellent candidates for neurological and vestibular rehabilitation. When you feel motion or spinning when you are not moving, your brain is falsely processing sensory information from the world around you. Following a comprehensive neurological examination, a customized treatment plan will be designed to improve feedback to these pathways of the brain and get you feeling steady on your feet again.
