Vertigo and Dizziness After Brain Injury

The Vestibular System

The Vestibular System is so complex and so sensitive, it is also easily disrupted, both by disease processes and trauma. The focus of this page is injury to the head and brain caused by wrongful or negligent conduct of others. Thus, many diseases which affect the inner ear and the rest of the vestibular system are outside the direct focus of this page.

Dizziness, Balance Problems and Vertigo after Head Trauma is Often Ignored

Vestibular Disorders involve a disturbing paradox in our experience with brain injured individuals.

  • Despite the fact that dizziness, nausea and vertigo are perhaps the most common of symptoms after a head injury;
  • Despite the fact that vestibular disorders are far easier to diagnose with modern diagnostic tools than most aspects of head injury (see the ENG materials herein), and tragically;
  • Despite the fact that many vestibular conditions can be effectively treated and sometimes easily cured -

Vestibular Disorders are completely missed or ignored in the vast majority of head injury cases.When untreated, and allowed to become intractable, they can impose an extreme additional burden upon an injured brain, which is already struggling to cope with a world that is seemingly going by too fast.

As elaborated upon in detail elsewhere in our treatment of Mild Traumatic Brain Injury, attentional demands, related to a loss of raw processing speed, have a synergistic impact on almost all cognitive and emotional functioning. The attentional demands of a vestibular system run amuck, are perhaps the worst of all brain injury symptomotology.

Further, the profound nausea and perceptual challenges that come with any sense of motion, may leave those with vestibular pathology, literally unable to venture forth. Even being a passenger in a vehicle, may involve such sensory overload, that such people may pose a safety hazard to others in the car.
