Dizziness and Physiotherapy Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670

Dizziness is an impairment in the areas of spatial perception and physical stability, but it is an imprecise term. It can mean any of four things: (1) vertigo (spinning); (2) presyncope (event prior to a fainting episode); (3) disequilibrium (loss of balance) and (4) a non-specific feeling such as giddiness or even foolishness.

Any patients or persons can induce the episode by participating or engaging in activities that causes disorientation, such as spinning (on one own, in a play ground, in plays in fairs etc).

Vertigo refers to a specific medical term used to describe the event or sensation of spinning or having one's environment spin around them. It is very disturbing, and many people and patients often complain of post-vertigo nausea and vomiting.

Disequilibrium is the feeling or the sense of losing balance, or loss of balance, as is very often characterized by frequent falls in a specific direction, often without nausea or vomiting.

Presyncope is the feeling or the sensation prior to a fainting episode, and patients often share on feeling lightheaded, muscle weakness and feeling like they're about to faint. It does not often have nausea or vomiting.

Non specific giddiness on the other hand, is often psychological in nature. It can be brought about by hyperventilation, such as an anxiety episode.

Mechanism

Many situations and conditions can cause giddiness because many parts of the body are used and required to maintain balance, which includes the inner ears, muscles, eyes, skeleton and our neurological system.

Common physiological causes of dizziness include:

  1. inadequate blood supply to the brain
  2. a sudden fall in blood pressure
  3. heart problems or artery blockages
  4. loss or distortion of vision or visual cues
  5. disorders of the inner ear
  6. distortion of brain/nervous function by medications such as anticonvulsants and sedatives
