Feeling Dizzy?

Dizziness and vertigo are often related but distinct sensations. Dizziness encompasses feelings of light-headedness and imbalance while vertigo involves a false sensation of movement, typically spinning or tilting. Various causes include inner ear disorders, vestibular migraines, Meniere’s disease, or benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Treatment depends on the underlying cause. For BPPV, specific head maneuvers like the Epley maneuver can reposition displaced inner ear crystals. Medications, vestibular rehabilitation therapy, dietary changes, or surgery may be recommended based on diagnosis. LifeSmart Medical Osborne is happy to welcome Dr. Aidin Shariatzadeh, CSCN (EEG) to the team. Dr. Shariatzadeh is a Neurologist with a stroke fellowship. If you are feeling dizzy, ask your family physician about seeing a Neurologist. Our LifeSmart Medical Osborne location is accepting Neurology patients.

Children & Behavioral Challenges

Some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviours that are outside the norm for their age. Behavioral challenges can stem from various factors including emotional distress, developmental disorders, or environmental difficulties. Whether the issue be with aggression, defiance, or frequent temper tantrums, therapy provides a structured environment where children can explore their emotions, learn coping strategies, and develop social skills. Therapists use evidence-based techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to address negative thought patterns and behaviors. Children learn to identify triggers and implement positive coping mechanisms. Therapy equips children with the tools needed to navigate challenges, promoting healthier relationships and improved well-being.
