Do you frequently experience dizziness? Do you ever feel like your dizziness is so bad that you’re going to trip or fall or that you may vomit?

What are the most common Causes of dizziness?

Dizziness can be caused by many factors such as:

  • Neck dysfunction
  • Excess fatigue
  • Poor diet
  • Low blood sugar
  • Medications, drugs, alcohol
  • Orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure when you rise)
  • Illness (eg. colds, flus)
  • Inner ear problems
  • Neurologic disease or stroke
  • Heart conditions
    Respiratory disease

Most of the time, the cause of dizziness is not serious. The most effective way to determine what is causing your dizziness is to see a physiotherapist, chiropractor, or medical doctor.

Seek emergency care if you experience dizziness associated with: 

  • Chest pain
  • Numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs.
  • Slurred speech
  • Confusion
  • Sudden, severe headache
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Blurred vision

How can physiotherapy or chiropractic help with dizziness?


Physiotherapy and chiropractic can be highly effective treatment options for some types of dizziness. Furthermore, our doctors and therapists are highly trained and have years of experience helping people relieve dizziness, lightheadedness, and other symptoms that are interfering with their sense of stability and function.

Our physiotherapists and chiropractors will conduct a thorough physical examination and medical history to ensure that they provide a personalized treatment plan based on the most effective and research-backed techniques. If the source of your dizziness cannot be determined or is not something we can help with, we will refer you to your physician for further assessment.

We will analyze the information gathered during your assessment to determine the specific cause of your dizziness and design our program accordingly. Each treatment plan is tailored to the individual’s needs and typically consists of a combination of manual therapy, balance and coordination exercises, education, and condition-specific techniques to assist you in resolving your condition.

The following are the most common treatments:

  • Mitigating vestibular symptoms: One of the most common causes of dizziness is a condition of the inner ear known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Specific head and body movements and positions can help to alleviate this condition. These movements aid in repositioning tiny loose calcium crystals in the inner ear, which alleviates dizziness.
  • Vestibular rehabilitation and balance exercises: To reduce the effects of dizziness, specific balance exercises and activities that focus on the nervous system and nerve sensitivity are used.
  • Addressing the underlying causes with qualified medical personnel: Depending on the cause, your family doctor or other medical specialists may be needed to fully understand and treat your dizziness.
