Vestibular Disorders Association
In this episode, we explore how, having learned to cope with all the ways vestibular impairment affects your life, many people discover a “new normal.” When life becomes unbalanced due to a vestibular disorder, people have no choice but to adapt to a “new normal,” a term common in the vestibular community and now the world, too, due to COVID-19. It’s hard to adapt to changes in our lives, especially when those changes have been forced upon us, and even more especially when they limit what we can do. But humans are infinitely adaptable. This process of adaptation may involve a lot of trial and error, ups and downs, and support from peers and our loved ones. What does your “new normal” look like? ___ Life Rebalanced Chronicles documents the stories of nine vestibular warriors. None of them expected to be knocked down by a vestibular disorder. All of them looked fear, anxiety, and loneliness in the face and said, “You will not define me.” Their message is one of hope for everyone who struggles with invisible chronic illness and others who are navigating life’s challenges. The new six-episode docuseries will air weekly starting August 10, in conjunction with Balance Awareness Week (Sept. 19-25, 2021). The series is a collaboration between the Vestibular Disorder Association (VeDA) and Kimberly Warner, filmmaker and founder of Unfixed Media and Unfixed Community youtube channel. In 2015, Kimberly was diagnosed with cervicogenic vertigo and Mal de Débarquement Syndrome (MdDS) that manifests as a constant perception of rocking, bobbing and swaying. The Life Rebalanced Chronicles documents nine vestibular patients who are learning to live with disorders such as vestibular migraines, MdDS, Meniere’s Disease and vestibular neuritis. Through intimate conversations, they explore parts of the human experience impacted by their vestibular dysfunction – mind, body, spirit, relationships, self and life. They also share their personal toolkits for living and thriving with their disorders and provide strategies from meditation, yoga and journaling to advocacy and finding meaning and purpose within their “new normal.” “This honest and inspiring docuseries shines a light on invisible balance disorders and brings more awareness and empathy to the vestibular experience,” says Cynthia Ryan, Executive Director of VeDA. “We are honored to work with filmmaker and vestibular patient Kimberly Warner, who brings lived experience to each episode as she compassionately helps each individual share their unique journey toward healing and hope.” About VeDA For almost 30 years, VeDA has been a highly respected source of scientifically credible information on vestibular disorders. Through publications and an online community, VeDA has reached millions of vestibular patients with critical information and support. The organization provides education and emotional support to patients with dizziness and imbalance. They connect patients with medical specialists through a provider directory of clinics that specialize in diagnosing and treating vestibular disorders. VeDA advocates on behalf of all who are impacted by vestibular disorders.

People love fixer-upper stories, miracle cures and answers but many wake up each day without any of these. The world needs more models for how to live a meaningful, unfixed life – a life liberated from fixed notions of how we must feel in order to live fully. The Unfixed portfolio of projects demonstrates that living well is not about eradicating our wounds and weaknesses but understanding how they complete our identities and equip us to help others.

Cervicogenic Dizziness | Causes | Treatments | Tutorial
Cervicogenic dizziness is one of the possible common causes of dizziness. It has been defined as an a specific sensation of changed spatial orientation and disequilibrium as a consequence of a proprioceptive disorder of the cervical afferents. It occurs with certain positions and movements of the cervical spine and can be accompanied with a stiff or painful feeling in the neck. Currently there are no diagnostic tests available to state that the dizziness of the patient has a cervicogenic origin. It's a diagnosis of exclusion which means that other causes of dizziness have to be excluded first. Cervicogenic dizziness (CD) has been defined by Furman and Cass as ‘a non-specific sensation of altered orientation in space and disequilibrium originating from abnormal afferent activity from the neck’. The pseudo-vertiginous sensations associated with cervicogenic dizziness are the consequence of a conflict with the information gathered by different postural sensory systems. The alteration of the afferent information of the deep cervical muscles and the cervical articular proprioceptors is the pathophysiological basis of CD. There is a general consensus that acknowledges that patients with cervical pathology may experience pseudo-vertiginous symptoms. When reported these symptoms should be investigated to confirm their relationship with the cervical spine or if they are of other origin, where they may need to be referred to a medical practitioner for further investigation. This tutorial presented by Paul Townley PT is recommended for trained and certified massage therapists, manual therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, nurses, and athletic trainers.
