Post-Traumatic Vertigo

A number of our new evaluations that have come in suffer from post-traumatic vertigo. It has been reported that approximately 50% of head and neck injuries result in dizziness and disequilibrium. Post-traumatic dizziness due to  injuries of the head and neck are most commonly linked to post-traumatic concussions, but there are other diagnoses that should be taken into account. In the link provided below is an article written about the different diagnoses of post-traumatic injuries: temporal bone fracture, labyrinthine concussion, BPPV, perilymphatic fistula, post-traumatic Meniere’s syndrome (hydrops), epileptic vertigo, cervical vertigo, migraine-related vertigo, post-concussion syndrome.

This article definitely gives an in depth look at specific symptoms for each of the above diagnoses, along with how long it takes for the symptoms to appear (sometimes symptoms take days or even weeks to appear after injury), and successful management of the symptoms for each diagnoses.
