Vertigo is a medical condition in which the sufferer feels as if everything around them is spinning, even when they are standing still. Vertigo can be caused by many different things, from ear infections and head injuries to anxiety and motion sickness.
Prolotherapy is a treatment that involves injecting the patient with an irritant solution. The solution irritates the ligaments in the joint and stimulates them to repair and strengthen themselves. This process can help to relieve vertigo symptoms for some patients. To evaluate patients, Dr. Philipose uses a digital motion x-ray, ultrasounds as well as neurological exam. Once the problem is found, a series of injections are performed to help stregnthen damged tissue and alleviate inflammation particularly around the 8th cranial nerve.
