VERTIGO, DIZZINESS, AND BALANCE PROBLEMS
VERTIGO
Vertigo occurs when the patient feels that all around him is moving or spinning. Vertigo is a persistent sense of motion, a feeling of tilting, swaying, spinning, when nothing is moving. The sensations are typically accompanied by sweating, vomiting and nausea.

People with vertigo often feel that things around them are moving when they are standing completely still.

Vertigo can be caused by an inner ear disturbance or crystals but may also be linked to a neurological condition.

At Lanzisera Center, we treat what's causing your vertigo after performing a thorough evaluation.
Contact us at (813) 253-2333 or by competing the form below.



DIZZINESS

Dizziness is different from vertigo. If you have the sensation of being light-headed but do not feel as if you or your surroundings are moving, then you are experiencing dizziness.

Although dizziness can occur in people of any age, it is more common among older adults. A fear of dizziness can cause older adults to limit their physical and social activities. Dizziness can also lead to falls and other injuries.

It's important to know what is causing your dizziness. Call Lanzisera Center for a thorough evaluation - (813) 253-2333.


BALANCE PROBLEMS
One of the leading health concerns for people over the age of 60 is falling, which is often related to balance problems. 

Each year, between 20 and 40 percent of adults over 65 who live at home fall. The consequences of falls can be disastrous; between 12 and 67 percent of elderly adults who fracture a hip die within one year. ​

Balance problems usually don't clear up on their own - you need to see a doctor. 

At Lanzisera Center, we determine the cause, or more typically causes,
of your balance problem. So don't wait for an accident to happen, Call (813) 253-2333 to schedule your check-up today.
SYMPTOMS AND CAUSES
OF VERTIGO, DIZZINESS, AND BALANCE PROBLEMS

Symptoms of a sense of lightheadedness or disorientation (dizziness) and/or a mild to violent spinning sensation (vertigo) can have a variety of causes: vestibular (inner ear) disorders such as Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo (BPPV) which involves loose crystals within the inner ear (see below), central nervous system disorders (such as stroke or brain dysfunction), cardiac problems (including low or high blood pressure), low blood sugar, infection, hyper-ventilation associated with anxiety attacks, medication side effects or interactions between drugs, an inadequate or poorly balanced diet. 
A thorough evaluation by a physician is usually necessary to help sort out these different possible causes and arrive at a correct diagnosis. 
At Lanzisera Center, we examine you both metabolically and neurologically to determine the causes of your condition. 

Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo is caused by loose inner ear crystals in the inner ear that migrate while sleeping to the back-bottom inner ear balance canal. The Epley maneuver is the way to reposition the loose crystals so that the symptoms caused by the loose crystals go away. Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo is one of many balance disorders that we diagnose and treat at Lanzisera Center.
