Dizziness is one of the most prevalent concerns of patients seeking care from their primary care providers. However, it is often one of the most puzzling conditions. Statistically, sufferers will see an average of 4 providers before their “dizziness” is correctly diagnosed. There are many different causes of “dizziness” some are mild while others can be life-threatening.

One very common cause is “vertigo.” Vertigo is defined as a spinning feeling, whereas dizziness is characterized as “light-headedness.” Often, they have various causes and different treatments. If you have vertigo followed by one or more symptoms, call Hope Neurological & Medical Services.


Vertigo is the feeling of spinning—even when you’re still, you might feel like you’re moving or that the room is spinning around you. Most cases of vertigo involve the inner ear or the “vestibular system”. One of the common vertigo forms is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, an inner-ear problem that causes a brief spinning sensation when you move your head or body. Your doctor or physical therapist will perform tests to determine your vertigo’s causes and assess your fall risk. Depending on the test results, your therapist may suggest further testing or consultation with a specialist.


Hope the Neurological & Medical Services evaluation process has evolved to address the many complicating components of vestibular, dizziness, and balance disorders. Infrared video goggles allow magnification of the eye on a monitor allowing us to see abnormal eye movements while the patient is taken through several motion tests. The abnormal patterns tell us a story about the patient’s condition. This information allows us to adapt a therapeutic program specific to the patient’s circumstances. These individualized programs not only treat symptoms but are beneficial in providing preventative measures.
