Question: What are the causes of dizziness?

Answer: There are many types of dizziness (vertigo, unsteadiness, fainting, etc.). Causes may stem from an injury, such as a concussion, and should be evaluated by a physician. Some causes are more benign
and include postural hypotension, medication, vestibular/ inner ear and cervical spine problems. Many of these can
be treated with physical therapy techniques. Ask your doctor if a physical therapy referral is appropriate. For more information, call Paula at STARS at 367-6900.
