Theme page 20. The DSB, the TSB and vertigo

Vertigo has traditionally been the only problem with the sense of balance. It may occur temporarily in certain positions of the body and/or in certain time of the day, year or cycles of years, but it can be a continuous nuisance, especially in old age. There are factors such as nutrition (e.g. diet with no salt or with too much of it), a way of life and physical electro-magnetic phenomena. Momentary vertigo can be one of the withdrawal effects of positional treatment, too.  When the treated sense of balance tries to direct the muscles into new courses of movement, the muscles "protest" this change by using the old ones and this conflict can cause some vertigo.

Due to the experiences of the more modern techniques of positional treatment it is obvious that vertigo is usually top of the iceberg where there are many other issues or illnesses caused earlier by the DSB underneath. Hormone disorders or metabolic disturbances may have affected or damaged the body in one way or another long before the symptoms of vertigo. Thus, the traditional concept of "benign" is out of place in connection with vertigo, which is always a "time bomb" if not treated.

Vertigo appears when muscles have been tensed to their extreme and they cannot adapt to the DSB anymore.  It's more common with aging people, when muscles cannot adapt (get tensed) as much as earlier. On the other hand, muscles get weaker, which strain the sense of balance. Vertigo with younger people is always a sign of a serious DSB and that's why the regular treatment of the sense of balance is especially important to prevent any other health problems.
