Vertigo and Unbalance

Vertigo and unbalance are two conditions that decrease quality of life. They can be related to neurological lesions and labyrinthic health problems. However, many of those suffering from vertigo or unbalance do not show evidence of neurological lesions or labyrinthic organic disturbances. The majority of theses cases is due to a proprioceptive dysfunction. Whenever we correct the proprioceptive system, vertigo and unbalance also disappear in a few seconds. If they do persist however, it means they do not have a proprioceptive origin.

Blood vessel muscles are related to the proprioceptive system and that is why sometimes vasodilator drugs can help with vertigo and unbalance. However, this is a weaker part of the proprioceptive system.

In order to have the best results, we must use stronger proprioceptive entries like the eyes and/or skeletal muscles, which is the same as saying we must use Active Prisms and Postural Reprogramming.

We are using both Active Prisms following MD O. Alves da Silva's requirements and Postural Reprograming according to MD Martins da Cunha. This treatment is the basic approach for every type of proprioceptive dysfunction symptoms. However, some types of symptoms need special action.
