treating vertigo

If you are frequently encountering dizzy spells that keep you feeling uneasy, you may be experiencing vertigo. Vertigo is a spinning sensation despite being perfectly still. This can lead to further debilitating symptoms that can be difficult to manage if not treated properly. The good news is that treating vertigo is possible with GyroStim therapy. Continue reading to learn more about this treatment and how it may benefit you.

What is Vertigo?

Vertigo is a type of intense dizziness accompanied by the perception of a spinning motion.

Sometimes this feeling lasts for a few seconds and is hardly noticeable. In other situations, the spinning sensation can be so strong that an uncomfortable loss of balance is experienced. In cases of severe vertigo, the symptoms reoccur constantly and may last for a few days, which obviously negatively impacts daily life.

The cause of vertigo is often attributed to the dysfunction of the vestibular system. This sensory system, which is also called your “balance mechanisms,” is located in the inner ear and influences movement and your sense of balance. However, vertigo is related to problems in certain areas of the brain as well.

Symptoms of Vertigo

Many things can bring on a bout of vertigo, including inner ear infections, migraines, and even some medications, including those commonly used to treat high blood pressure or anxiety. About half of all people over age 65 will suffer an episode of intense vertigo, according to the Cleveland Clinic. It’s also worth noting that women are particularly prone to vertigo when compared to men (Mayo Clinic).

Depending on the dysfunction and brain area causing vertigo, additional symptoms can occur alongside your feelings of dizziness and unbalance. These include:

  • Light-headedness
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty speaking
  • A lowered level of consciousness
  • Hearing loss
  • High body temperature
  • Tinnitus (ringing in your ears)

How Gyrostim Can Help with Treating Vertigo

You may be wondering, “GyroStim? What is that? And how can it benefit me?”

GyroStim is a one-of-a-kind training system that challenges the functionality of your sensorimotor system to help you perform better. McWhorter CNR is a leading provider of GyroStim in Denver and it has a lot to offer you.

Your sensorimotor system includes the sensory organs (i.e., eyes, ears, skin, etc.), parts of the nervous system, and the body's motor controls. This system governs the human body's ability to perceive and respond to the external environment, as well as its ability to move and perform other functional activities.

When you experience vertigo, your sensorimotor system is impacted. The speed at which your brain can receive sensory information, interpret that information and respond with motor, verbal, or cognitive output is constantly in flux based on the health of your sensorimotor system.

GyroStim therapy is unique in its facilitation of a dynamic environment for brain training that synchronizes and improves the brain’s cognitive processing and reaction times. Experiencing GyroStim in Denver has a number of health benefits that you can’t get anywhere else. Just to name a few, this innovative treatment can help:

  • Improve balance
  • Support brain performance
  • Increase reaction speed
  • Improve interaction between different functional regions within the brain
  • Reduce headaches and migraines
  • And much more
