Determining the Underlying Cause
The first step in treating vertigo is to determine the underlying cause. There are many potential causes of vertigo, such as:
- Inner Ear Problems
- Viral Infections
- And More
Once the cause is determined, we can develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.
Treating the Symptoms
Depending on what is causing your vertigo, there are a number of ways to treat the symptoms. If it’s a viral infection, the best course of action is to wait it out while taking medication to mitigate the symptoms. Other causes of vertigo may require something more drastic like a change in diet and exercise.
Surgery May Be an Option
In some cases, surgery may be the best option for treating vertigo. This is usually only recommended if other methods have failed or if the underlying cause is a serious condition like Meniere’s disease.
