At Texas Dizziness Centers we understand the intrinsic structural connection between the brain, the vestibular system, and the peripheral nervous system (nerves and muscles). We take a holistic approach in the understanding the constellation of conditions that affect these structural body systems, consequently targeting the proper treatment to the underlying causations.
The vestibular system is made up of areas of the brain and parts of the inner portion of the ear. These parts of the body assist in processing sensory information that are in control of eye movement and balance within the body itself. If a person suffers from an injury or disease that affects these areas, a vestibular disorder can occur. Genetics and/or environmental factors can also cause or worsen vestibular disorder, as well as can occur for unknown reasonings.
Symptoms associated to Vestibular Disorders may be frightening and difficult to describe. Common symptoms can include vertigo and dizziness. Learn more.
The most common causes for dizziness are associated to brain injury or inner ear disorders. While most are easily treatable, other could have more serious implications. Learn More.

Maybe, at some point in your life, you have suffered from brief periods of vertigo which disappeared without treatment. If it happened to you, maybe you suffered from benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV. It may be a strange name to you, but you don't have to worry. This condition is treatable and manageable.
Living with Vestibular Disorders can cause dramatic changes in lifestyle. However, with treatment and some simple adaptations you will be able to carry a normal life and enjoy the things you do.
Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT) Is a specialized form of therapy whose objective is to reduce primary and secondary symptomatology produced by vestibular disorders. It is based on a series of exercises designed to minimize vertigo and dizziness, lack of stability and/or imbalance.
Salt is a necessary mineral involved in the equilibrium of electrolytes and fluids, affecting muscles, nerves and finally, the whole body. It is possible to consume too much salt, as well as too little. In relation to patients with vestibular disorders, diminution of sodium is recommended as a well-known dietary modification.
