Many individuals experience common vestibular abnormalities such as dizziness, vertigo, feeling off balance or feeling disoriented. Sometimes these symptoms can occur post-concussion, or they may occur from conditions such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vestibular neuritis, or meniere’s disease.
In addition, concussions can change the way our brain functions – causing it to work less optimally. It may be caused either by a direct blow to the head, face, neck, or elsewhere on the body with an “impulsive” force transmitted to the head. It can result in side effects including headaches, irritability, inability to focus, memory impairment, anxiety, and depression. This means concussion and vestibular rehabilitation require a multi-pronged approach to address all of these potential effects.
