Concussion, dizziness and vertigo are common conditions. What are they and how can they be treated?

Dr. Carlo Rinaudo recently joined the Petrozzi Wellness Centre team. A registered chiropractor, he also has post-graduate training in Functional Neuro-Rehabilitation (Functional Neurology). He is a specialist in dizziness and other balance related conditions. Dr. Rinaudo is also associated with the Brain Hub Dizziness and Concussion Clinic. The website discusses a variety of conditions, including concussion, dizziness and vertigo. In brief:

  • Concussions are the most common form of mild traumatic brain injury. Often the result of being struck or bumped or in the head, concussions cause a temporary disruption in brain function that may or may not result in immediate physical or mental symptoms. Contrary to popular belief, most concussions do not result in loss of consciousness.
  • Dizziness and vertigo are two of the most common reasons for doctors’ visits in Australia and throughout the rest of the world. The term dizziness refers to a range of uncomfortable sensations, including feeling light-headed, feeling faint, losing your normal sense of balance, feeling woozy and having a false feeling of your body spinning around or moving to one side.Vertigo is a particular kind of dizziness.
