A dysfunction of the vestibular system is, in general, the main cause of vertigo. This system is located inside the ear and is responsible for our balance. However, vertigo may also be related to a manifest problem in certain areas of the brain. In these cases, training with neurofeedback can be very helpful in helping you to make significant improvements.
We know that during vertigo episodes you experience an unpleasant loss of balance. The negative effects are obvious, simply being upright or working can be very complicated. In addition, suffering the vertigo generates frustration and fear to the perspective of experiencing any imbalance at any moment and in the most inopportune place.
The vertigo generates a lot of tension and anxiety to the patients who arrive at our consultation. The person who suffers it is constantly aware of its environment in order to be able to rely safely in case of imbalance. In a few sessions of neurofeedback the patient is usually more relaxed, they can walk without support and manages to lose some of this fear and anxiety.
As we pointed out earlier, vertigo can be peripheral and central. Peripheral vertigo refers to a problem in the inner ear that affects balance. The central vertigo is due to a brain problem. If you suffer from vertigo it is important that you visit your doctor or neurologist before visiting us.
Symptomology determines the protocol or procedure to be applied. That is why it is important to have a medical or neurological report to support the treatment and determine what improvements can be obtained and how to proceed.
The application of the neurofeedback technique is a learning process that uses the measurement of your brain activity to reinforce more adequate electrical patterns. During the sessions you may experience improvements in your auditory processing as well as stabilization during dizziness and headaches.
These sessions based on the technique of neurofeedback are carried out by professionals with ample experience. It is a safe and non-invasive technique whose results are obtained gradually by self-regulation of the patient’s brain activity. These corrections are performed by you subconsciously and in response to your interaction with the visual and auditory stimuli shown to you.
