Why Blue Light is Important for Sleep and Balance
Dizzy & Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
by Dr. Pearce & Dr. Nava
1y ago
Sleep starts before you lay your head down on your pillow. Hours before bedtime, our Circadian Rhythm begins its winddown phase, which means what you do in the lead-up to sleep is just as important as how long you sleep. And how you manage your light intake is the most crucial part of managing your Circadian Rhythm. Effects of Blue Light As we discussed in Best Sleep Habits for Vertigo Recovery, blue light is a major part of sleep and wakefulness. Our bodies have evolved to sleep and wake with the sun – the biggest source of blue light (UVB) in our lives. When our eye receptors receive blue li ..read more

Treating Dizziness and Vertigo in VR through Vestibular-Visual Desensitization Training
Dizzy & Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
by Dr. Pearce & Dr. Nava
1y ago
It’s rare for a balance disorder to be cured in one or two treatments. The typical dizzy patient needs at least a half dozen treatments and in some cases needs ongoing maintenance (i.e. once a month for a year or more). This level of treatment schedule can be a major burden, we know. Fortunately, we have a fix that makes vestibular treatment possible from anywhere at any time.  That solution is attributed to advancements in technology and the use of virtual reality treatment. What sets our vestibular clinic apart from others is that we’ve developed proprietary treatment protocols that can ..read more

Sleep is at the core of everything we do. Mental health, physical health, and performance all lean on quality sleep. That’s why sleep is vital to recovery. No matter what you’re battling, without quality and consistent sleep, your body will not respond as well to treatment. This holds especially true for those recovering from balance disorders, vertigo attacks, and lingering dizziness. As vestibular specialists, we can use top-of-the-line vestibular equipment and the latest protocols in treatment, but if our patients aren’t getting good rest on a consistent basis, then our treatment won’t be n ..read more

Intro to Oscillopsia: The Balance Disorder of the Eyes
Dizzy & Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
by Dr. Pearce & Dr. Nava
2y ago
Balance disorders do not always cause symptoms of vertigo or dizziness, where the world feels as though it is spinning even though it isn’t. In some cases, a balance disorder can manifest solely in our vision. Oscillopsia is one of these balance disorders where its symptoms are localized to our eyes and often feel like we have jumpy, wobbly, or lagging vision. What is Oscillopsia? Like vertigo and dizziness, oscillopsia is an illusion of an unstable visual world. It affects how our eyes perceive the world before us. And while you can call the symptoms an illusion, their impact on dizzy patient ..read more

Dizzy & Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
by Dr. Pearce & Dr. Nava
2y ago
Do you ever feel weird like the room is spinning and you just keep blinking because that may help? Our vision and our balance are closely related. It’s difficult to balance in an environment we cannot see. And when we’re unbalanced, our vision of the world spins into oblivion. We often say that the eyes are the windows to the inner ear (where our vestibular system is located). And the reason balance and vision are so connected is because of the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex (VOR). What is the Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex? To maintain balance and navigate through space in our physical world, we must organ ..read more

All of the systems of the body are interconnected. It’s why health concerns often snowball out of control, manifesting in multiple problems throughout the body.

Dizzy & Vertigo Institute of Los Angeles
by Dr. Pearce & Dr. Nava
2y ago
The body’s ability to balance is one of nature’s most incredible developments. Although our balance system is made up of inputs throughout our body, the inner ear houses the GPS of our balance. And particles in the inner ear called otoconia are responsible for calibrating this GPS. What Are Otoconia The vestibular system is made up of many moving parts that detect gravity, movement, and motion. The parts work in unison to create, maintain, and correct our balance. The two parts of the vestibular system responsible for sensing linear acceleration and gravity are the utricle and saccule. These p ..read more
