Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD)

Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness (PPPD or 3PD) is a condition characterized by long-lasting balance problems and chronic dizziness. It interferes with your ability to perform daily activities like driving, walking, or reading. 

It is often triggered by distressing events or pre-existing mental health conditions that lead to neural connectivity issues. Some of the most common symptoms resemble a vertigo-like sensation that could continue for years if not treated properly. 

PPPD is a recently defined condition and is still being studied by researchers to understand its causes and risk factors fully. However, people dealing with this illness have found that integrative treatments that include alternative medicine and lifestyle modifications can effectively manage the intensity of these symptoms. 

NeuroMed specializes in offering integrative solutions for neurological issues like PPPD. Its unique approach uses medications, supplements, lifestyle changes, and physical therapy to help you manage this complex condition. 

Symptoms of Persistent Postural-Perceptual Dizziness

PPPD affects your spatial perception and balance, often making it difficult to perform daily activities like walking or driving. Some of the most common symptoms of 3PD include:

  • Feeling like your surroundings are moving but not spinning (non-spinning vertigo)
  • Unsteadiness or a swaying, wobbling, or veering sensation
  • Not being able to focus or process thoughts with ease (brain fog)

These symptoms range from mild to severe and usually last at least three months. You may feel some relief when lying down but may feel your symptoms worsen when you are in a crowded area, change your posture, or when looking at complex patterns.
