How to Prevent Attacks of Vertigo?
Physical Therapy is provided at Spinal Recovery Center. Spending time with our well trained physical therapists, a patient will learn useful techniques, such as using alternative signals from the eyes, ankles, legs and neck to maintain balance. There are also various exercise techniques which help improve balance.
The following measures may help prevent bouts of vertigo, as well as reducing their severity:
* Sleep with your head slightly higher than the rest of your body.
* Slightly prop up your head and shoulders with a couple of extra pillows.
* If you have to pick something up from the floor or a surface far below your head, try to avoid bending down - the aim being to prevent your head from being lower or much lower than your shoulders.
* If you have good legs, try bending your legs to lower yourself rather than bending over.
* When reaching up for something, try not to extend your neck.
* If your neck is extended, or when you are lying down flat, more your head slowly.
* If you feel an episode of vertigo coming on sit down immediately.
* Avoid triggers that make symptoms worse, such as bright lights, reading, sudden movements or watching TV.
* After an attack is over do not rush to return to normal activities; take your time.
* Stop smoking - people who suffer from episodes of vertigo usually experience fewer episodes and less severe symptoms if they give up smoking.
* If your vertigo is due to motion sickness, such as a rocking boat, and you feel symptoms coming on, fix your eyes on an stationary object in the distance.
* A walking stick will not prevent symptoms, but can help with balance and prevent falls and injuries.
