I'm not sure why it seems to work this way, but when I see a certain condition, I start seeing a lot of it. One patient will come in with plantar fascia, first one in months, then I will get quite a few more.
Lately, I have been seeing quite a few patients with positional vertigo. Positional vertigo is the feeling of dizziness, sometimes nausea, coming from a certain position. Could be laying down, could be sitting up, could be laying only on the right side.
I started doing some research. There are a few maneuvers that seem to help people. Epley Maneuver being the most common. The most interesting note, what I've seen help pretty quickly, is hydration.
Positional vertigo may be a result of being dehydrated. I've seen it help a few right away. If you have dizziness with positions or know of someone that does, tell them to drink up. Hydrate.
On a side note, I always tell patients to drink a lot of water after getting treated. I've now come to realize I have to give specific numbers after learning one patient thought 30 ounces was a lot of water. For the record, 1/2 your bodyweight in ounces.
