A. Vertigo is the sensation of being light-headed or dizzy. It can feel like the room is spinning and is often accompanied by nausea. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), often the cause of vertigo related to head movement, occurs when calcium carbonate crystals become dislodged in the inner ear.

When the head is moved in different positions, the crystals migrate and create the sensation of vertigo. BPPV can result from trauma, infection, age or sometimes for unknown reasons. A physical therapist is trained to perform maneuvers and prescribe exercises to help eliminate this condition.
