Vertigo Anatomy


Vertigo is a medical condition where a person feels as if they or the objects around them are moving when they are not. Often it feels like a spinning or swaying movement.This may be associated with nausea, vomiting, sweating, or difficulties walking.It is worsened when the head is moved. Actually vertigo is the most common type of dizzines.

The most common diseases that result in vertigo are benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Ménière’s disease, and labyrinthitis.Less common causes include stroke, brain tumors, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, migraines, trauma, and uneven pressures between the middle ears.Physiologic vertigo may occur following being exposed to motion for a prolonged period such as when on a ship or simply following spinning with the eyes closed. Other causes may include toxin exposures such as to carbon monoxide, alcohol, or aspirin.The episodes of vertigo should last less than one minute.
Dizziness affects approximately 20–40% of people at some point in time, while about 7.5–10% have vertigo.It becomes more common with age and affects women two to three to moreoften than men.

Vertigo is mainly classified into two that is peripheral or central, depending on the location of the dysfunction of the vestibular pathway.Vertigo can also be classified into objective, subjective, and pseudovertigo.
Objective vertigo describes when the person has the sensation that stationary objects are moving.Subjective vertigo refers to when the person feels as if they are moving.The third type is known as pseudovertigo, an intensive sensation of rotation inside the person’s head.

Vertigo that is caused by problems with the inner ear or vestibular system(composed of the semicircular canals, the vestibule, and the vestibular nerve is called “peripheral”, “otologic” or “vestibular” vertigo.The most common cause is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which accounts for 32% of all peripheral vertigo. People with peripheral vertigo typically present with mild to moderate imbalance, nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, tinnitus, fullness, and pain in the ear.
Vertigo that arises from injury to the balance centers of the central nervous system (CNS), often from a lesion in the brainstem or cerebellum,is called “central” vertigo.Central vertigo may have accompanying neurologic deficits (such as slurred speech and double vision), and pathologic nystagmus (which is pure vertical/torsional).Commonlly it can cause disequilibrium which is the sensation of being off balance. The balance disorder associated with central lesions causing vertigo is often so severe that many patients are unable to stand or walk.

Lesions caused by infarctions or hemorrhage, tumors present in the cerebellopontine angle such as a vestibular schwannoma or cerebellar tumors,epilepsy,cervical spine disorders such as cervical spondylosis,degenerative ataxia as well as cerebral dysfunction.Central vertigo may not improve or may do so more slowly than peripheral vertigo.


Vertigo Sign And Symtoms

– Sensation of spinning while stationary,
– Nausea or vomiting,
– Unsteadiness (postural instability),
– Nystagmus,
– Difficulties in walking,
– Motion Sickness
Recurrent episodes in those with vertigo are common and frequently impair the quality of life.Blurred vision, difficulty in speaking, a lowered level of consciousness, and hearing loss may also occur. The signs and symptoms of vertigo can present as a persistent (insidious) onset or an episodic (sudden) onset.

During an evaluation for vertigo, the health care professional may obtain a full history of the events and symptoms from the patient,which includes medications that have been taken,recent illnesses, and prior medical history.
After that, a physical examination is performed. This often involves a full neurologic exam to evaluate brain function and determine whether the vertigo is due to a central or peripheral cause.
The Dix-Hallpike test is done to try to recreate symptoms of vertigo; this test involves abruptly repositioning the patient’s head and monitoring the symptoms which might then occur.BPPV may be diagnosed with this test.
“Roll test” during which a patient lies flat and the head is rapidly moved from side to side.
If indicated, some cases of vertigo may require an MRI or CT scan of the brain or inner ears to exclude a structural problem like stroke. If hearing loss is suspected, audiometry may be ordered. Hearing loss is not seen with BPPV or other common causes of vertigo. Electronystagmography, or electrical evaluation of vertigo, can help distinguish between peripheral and central vertigo, but is not routinely perform.



Care in Vertigo


Definitive treatment depends on the underlying cause of vertigo.In many cases, vertigo goes away without any treatment. This is because your brain is able to adapt, at least in part, to the inner ear changes, relying on other mechanisms to maintain balance. But,For some, treatment is needed and may include:
Vitamin D supplementation may be beneficial for patients diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
. Herbal remedies such as ginger root, ginkgo biloba, and coriander may help reduce vertigo symptoms in some people. This are home remedies, so refer to your doctor before use.

  •  Medicine –
    In some cases, medication may be given to relieve symptoms such as nausea or motion sickness associated with vertigo.
    If vertigo is caused by an infection or inflammation, antibiotics or steroids may reduce swelling and cure infection.
    Commonly refer medications are:
    meclizine hydrochloride (Antivert)
    metoclopramie (Reglan)
    odansetron (Zofran)
    diazepam (Valium)
    For Meniere’s disease, diuretics (water pills) may be prescribed to reduce pressure from fluid buildup. Other than that patient is advised for low-sodium diet.
    In a few cases, surgery may be needed for vertigo.
  • Physiotherapy Management :


Vertigo Epley maneuvers


1.Epley maneuvers, consist of having the patient sit on the edge of a table and lie down to one side until the vertigo resolves followed by sitting up and lying down on the other side, again until the vertigo ceases. This maneuver is mostly used for BPPV.This is repeated until the vertigo no longer occurs.
2. Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy is comprised of three main types of exercise: habituation, gaze stabilisation, and balance exercises.
Habituation exercises are used to treat people who experience dizziness as a result of damage to their vestibular system.The exercises aim to reduce the frequency and strength of the dizzy spells over time. This is accomplished by inducing light dizzy spells and gradually increasing the level of exposure, which enables the brain to get used to the stimulus, as well as build its tolerance for dizziness up.
Gaze stabilisation is used for patients who have nystagmus, particularly when they are moving their heads. This not only makes it difficult for people to see their surroundings, but can lead to other issues such as headaches. Gaze stabilisation exercises can help people regain more control over their eyes. One of the most common exercises for gaze stabilisation is having the patient focus their eyes on a stationary object in front of them while moving their head from side to side. This helps to separate the movement of the eyes from the movement of the head. Another exercise is for the patient to keep their head still while following an object, such as a pen, from side to side with their eyes. This helps them to move their eyes without having to move their head as well.Gaze stabilization exercise isnmost commont type of exercise for the treatment of vertigo.
Balancing exercises required will depend on the stimulus that triggers the issue. People may have difficulty balancing when walking outside, inside, on elaborately patterened floors, or around obstacles. Performing tasks while standing or walking can be a major issue for people who have trouble balancing, as can moving through crowds or being surrounded by people.For this patient is advised for straight walking, backward walking and side walking in one line which improves balance and stabilization of the patient during walking and standing.

How long does vertigo last? 

vertigo will usually go away on its own within 24 hours.
Attacks of vertigo due to Meniere’s disease can last from 20 minutes to 24 hours.
For patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, the Epley maneuver can usually stop symptoms within a week.
Vertigo from a stroke, either due to blood vessel blockage or hemorrhage, may leave permanent damage to the brain and cause permanent vertigo symptoms.


  • prevent injuries from falls.
  • Those with risk factors for stroke should control their high blood pressure and high cholesterol and stop smoking.
  • Avoid substances like caffeine, tobacco, or alcohol.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.






Posterior View Cervical Rib
anterior view of cervical  rib



lateral view of cervical rib


A cervical rib in humans is an extra rib which arises from the seventh cervical vertebra. Sometimes known as “neck ribs” their presence is a congenital abnormality located above the normal first rib. A cervical rib is estimated to occur in 0.2% (1 in 500 people) to 0.5% of the population. People may have a cervical rib on the right, left or both sides.It may be a fully-formed bony rib or just a thin strand of tissue fibres.

Signs & Symptoms

90% cases of cervical ribs are not clinically relevant and do not have symptoms; cervical ribs are generally discovered incidentally. and it produces symptoms after the age of 30 years.A patient may present with following symptoms:

 (a) Neurological Symptoms:

  • Pain in your neck and shoulder, which spreads into your arm – this may be constant or come and go. This is commonly seen in thoracic outlet syndrome.
  • Tingling and numbness,temporary loss of feeling in the affected arm and fingers(T1 dermatome). This is  the most common complaint.
  • Wasting of the hand muscle and temporary inability in fine movement of hand like buttoning

 (b) Vascular Symptoms:

subclavian artery compression
  • An aneurysm in the subclavian artery which can affect the blood supply to the fingers leads to small red or black patches on the skin.
  • white colouration in hand
  • There may be present of Raynaud’s phenomenon – a condition that affects the blood supply to the fingers and toes, turning them white.
  • Radial pulse becomes feeble or may even be absent.

(c) Local Symptoms:

  • Sometimes, patient may present with the tenderness in supraclavicular lump which, on palpation very hard and fixed.
  • Swelling in the affected arm but, this is very rare.


(1) Generally it is diagnosed by the X-Ray examination to detect cervical rib,

which could be easily palpable.

It is attached to the seventh cervical vertebra.

                                                            Cervical Rib X-Ray

(2) Special test:

    (a)Adson’s Test

Adson’s test

Indications– Evaluation of Cervical Ribs/ Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
Technique- Patient breathes deeply, Neck extended, Chin turned toward affected side. The examiner lifts the arm away to the side to 90 degrees and performs external rotation of the shoulder, and notes whether the radial pulse disappears. However there are many false positives, as the radial pulse may disappear in normal people as the head of the humerus (upper arm bone) compresses the brachial vessels when the arm is taken beyond 90 degrees. Repeat test with chin to opposite side.
Interpretation Positive test finding suggests interscalene compression, decreased Radial Pulse and/or Distal extremity pain reproduced.

  (b) Foraminal Compression Test/ Spurling’s Test

Spurling’s test

Spurling’s test is an orthopedic test used to diagnose nerve root compression primarily at the cervical level. It should not be used in instances in which vertebral instability is suspected.

   (c) Shoulder Abduction Test

shouldr abduction test

Shoulder Abduction Test is an orthopedic test used to help diagnose a cervical nerve root injury or cervical disc herniation. It is performed by having the patient abduct their shoulder and place their hand on top of their head.  A positive test will involve a decrease in radiculopathy or pain.

Differential Diagnosis:

Patient with cervical rib is to be differtiated from patients presents with radiatiang pain in upper limb and following are the causes:
1)Some of the more common conditions include herniated cervical disk, cervical                     spondylosis, and peripheral neuropathies.
2) Peripheral vascular disease like Raynaud’s disease.
3) Neurological conditions-like syringomyelia, polio, muscular dystrophy, motor neuron        disease.


1. medical treatment:
Anti-inflammatory drugs and
this two given as a coservative treatment.

2. surgical treatment:
surgery is essential in conditions of severe, progressive vascular and neurological signs and symptoms which are unbearable for the patients. It includes:

  • Removal of extra segment.
  • Dividing the scalene group of muscles.

3. physiothrapy management:
On the basis of symptoms of the patient, the regime of physiotherapy is planned.

  • For pain relief- short wave diathermy is used but it is contraindicated in case of sensory impairments.
  • To improve distal circulation- gripping exercise like ball sqizing, spring stretching.
  • To improve tone, power and endurance-Strengthening exercises of whole arm perticularly small muscles of the arm.
  • For posture Correction -In this, patient is guided to use mirror to see that his shoulders are in level, head is straight, looking forward.
  • Deep Tissue Massage for TOS ( thoracic Outlet Syndrome).
  • Specific exercises- To develop particular muscles groups for specific movements of shoulder girdle like elevation, retraction, and raising the arm overhead as these movements brings spontaneous relief. The important exercises are:


  Self resisted exercise








1-Self resisted scapular elevation.

2-Self resisted scapular adduction.

3-Endurance training exercise for the shoulder girdle muscles.

4-Progressive resistance exercises for shoulder girdle muscles with weight.


Exercise And Myositis Ossification


Myositis ossificans (MO) occurs when bone or bone-like tissue grows where it’s not supposed to. It most commonly happens in your muscle after an injury — like when you get hit hard in the thigh during a soccer game or maybe after a car or bicycle accident.Myositis ossificans comprises two syndromes characterized by heterotopic ossification (calcification) of muscle.About 80 percent of the time, these bony growths develop in the muscles of your thigh or upper arm.


strenghening ex

In the first, and by far most common type, nonhereditary myositis ossificans, calcifications occur at the site of injured muscle, most commonly in the arms or in the quadriceps of the thighs.
The term myositis ossificans traumatica is sometimes used when the condition is due to trauma. Also known as Myositis ossificans circumscripta is another synonym of myositis ossificans traumatica refers to the new extraosseous bone that appears after trauma.
The second condition, myositis ossificans progressiva (also referred to as fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva) is an inherited affliction, autosomal dominant pattern, in which the ossification can occur without injury, and typically grows in a predictable pattern. Although this disorder can be passed to offspring by those afflicted with FOP, it is also classified as nonhereditary, as it is most often attributed to a spontaneous genetic mutation upon conception.


Ice Pack Applied in Painful Area

Myositis ossificans usually occurs where a person has experienced a single traumatic injury, such as sustaining a hit while playing football or soccer that causes a deep muscle bruise.

It can also happen when there is a repetitive injury to the same area, such as in the thighs of horseback riders.

Sports injuries or accidents usually initiate MO. Adolescents and young adults in their 20s are most likely to develop MO. It’s rare for children age of 10 and under to get the condition. People who have paraplegia are also prone to develope MO, but usually with no evidence of trauma.


Unlike other typical muscle strains or injuries, people with myositis ossificans may notice that their pain worsens with time instead of getting better.
Someone with this condition may also notice changes in the affected muscle, including:

A lump or bump
Decreased range of motion


If it has been at least 2–3 weeks since the pain or other symptoms started, the doctor may order some imaging tests to look for evidence of bone growth in the soft tissue.
Your doctor may also order other imaging tests. These may include a diagnostic ultrasound, MRI, CT, or bone scan.

X-ray: It can be difficult to diagnose myositis ossificans in the early stages with just an X-ray. Most X-rays will not show up any abnormalities in the first 2–3 weeks following the injury but will show changes after 3–4 weeks.

Ultrasound: Ultrasounds use sound waves to look at the soft tissues. They are one early diagnostic test that can be used to look for the changes associated with myositis ossificans. Ultrasonography depends on the ability of the person reading the scans, so many doctors do not often recommend it as the first test.

CT scan: Doctors can usually see the early development of bone tissue in soft tissues. However, it is not 100 percent reliable, and if a doctor suspects that someone has myositis ossificans, they may carry out additional testing to make the diagnosis.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): An MRI is a preferred method of looking at soft tissue growths. A doctor may still order additional tests to compare and confirm a diagnosis.

A biopsy of the growth may also be taken and evaluated in a lab.

Myositis ossificans usually resolves on its own.You may be able to prevent MO by properly taking care of your injury in the first two weeks. You can reduce inflammation by immobilizing the affected muscle with slight compression, icing, and elevation.

Rest: You don’t have to just lie there, but don’t stress the muscle too much.
Ice: Apply for 15 to 20 minutes at a time.
Compression: Wrap an elastic bandage firmly around your injury to minimize swelling and keep the area stable.
Elevation: Raise your injured limb above the level of your heart to help drain excess fluid from the area.
Non-painful stretching and strengthening: Gently stretch the affected muscle and start doing strengthening exercises when your doctor says it’s OK. Don’t perform any movements to the point of pain.

Medications and orthotics

You can take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen (Aleve) to reduce pain and swelling. Topical treatments like Biofreeze or Tiger Balm can also helps to ease pain.

When your pain and movement allow you to get back to sports, wear some padding or other protection on the injured muscle to prevent additional damage.

Physiotherapy management of myositis ossificans includes


Icing the injury

Pulsed Ultra sound and phonophoresis

Maintain available range of motion but avoid stretching and massage, until maturation.
Passive range of motion and mobilization: This is when a person or machine moves your body parts for you.
Active range of motion and mobilization: This is when you use your own strength to move your body parts.

Iontophoresis with 2 % acetic acid solution.

Extra corporeal shock wave therapy

Surgical Management

Growth should not be removed in premature stage as it will likely reoccur. The ossification becomes exuberant, infiltrates beyond the original site, and compresses the soft tissues around beyond hope of repair. When after serial x-rays the mass is dense, well delineated, and at a stand still, it may be safely removed. It may be possible to prevent myositis by aspirating the original haematoma.


While it can be difficult to predict who will get myositis ossificans, it is important to treat every injury promptly using the R.I.C.E. method. This is:


An athlete who sustains an injury may need to leave the game or event, especially if there is significant swelling or bruising.

Gentle stretching and range of motion exercises are also essential after an injury; myositis ossificans is more likely to affect a muscle that is not being used.

Doing too much too soon can worsen MO. But not working to recover your range of motion when the doctor says it’s safe may make your pain and stiffness last longer.

Oral SubMucous Fibrosis And Exercise :



Patient With SMF

Oral submucous fibrosis is characterized as the unending, tricky ailment influencing the oral pit and here and there pharynx, albeit at times went before or potentially connected with vesicle arrangement and is constantly connected with juxtaepithelial fiery response took after by fibro versatile changes in the lamina propria with epithelial decay prompting firmness of oral pit prompting trismus and powerlessness to eat.

Oral submucous fibrosis is an interminable crippling and an all around perceived possibly threatening condition related with areca nut biting, an element of betel quid and is pervasive in South Asian populace. Pathogenesis isn’t yet settled however is accepted to be because of multifactorial causes; consequently the treatment of oral submucous fibrosis proposes a noteworthy test for oral doctors.


The pathogenesis of the illness isn’t entrenched, however the reason for OSF is accepted to be multifactorial.

Various variables may trigger the infection procedure by causing a juxtaepithelial fiery response in the oral mucosa. Components incorporate are areca nut biting, ingestion of chilies, hereditary and immunologic procedures, wholesome inadequacies and different variables.

Areca Nut (Betel Nut) Chewing:

The areca nut segment of betel quid assumes a noteworthy part in the pathogenesis of OSF 15. Betel nut is much of the time utilized as a psychotropic and antihelminthic operator and utilized as an after feast digestant which is taken to ease stomach inconvenience.

Smoking and liquor utilization alone, propensities basic to areca nut chewers, have been found to have no impact in the advancement of OSF. The most grounded confirm in regards to the etiology of OSF is with the propensity for areca nut biting.

Areca nut shape might be accessible in thefollowing structure:

Supari + Tobacco

Supari + Pan+ Tobacco

Supari + Pan + Pan masala

Skillet Parag/Pan masala

Supari + Pan + Lime

Supari-Roasted/Raw Areca nut

Part of areca nut in pathogenesis of OSF:

Arecoline, a dynamic alkaloid found in betel nuts. Animates fibroblasts to build creation of collagen by 150%.

To lift the mRNA and protein articulation of cystatin C, a nonglycosylated fundamental protein reliably up-directed the assortment of fibrotic illnesses, in a measurement subordinate way in people with OSF.

Areca nuts have likewise been appeared to have a high copper substance, and biting areca nuts for 5-30 minutes altogether increments solvent copper levels in oral liquids. This expanded level of solvent copper underpins the speculation as a starting element in people with OSF.

Healthful Deficiencies:

Press insufficiency frailty, vitamin B complex inadequacy and lack of healthy sustenance are advancing variables that unsettle the repair of the excited oral mucosa, prompting damaged recuperating and resultant scarring.

The resultant atrophic oral mucosa is more defenseless to the impacts of chilies and betel nuts. Mucosal changes like those in vitamin B and iron insufficiency are found in oral sub mucosal fibrosis.


The part of chillies ingestion in the pathogenesis of OSF is disputable.

A touchiness response to chilies is accepted to add to OSF.

Hereditary and Immunologic Processes:

A hereditary segment is thought to be engaged with OSF Patients with expanded recurrence of HLA-A10, HLA-B7, and HLA-DR3.

Measurement Of Mouth Opening

Phases OF OSF:

Stage 1:

Stomatitis incorporates erythematous mucosa, vesicles, mucosal ulcers, melanotic mucosal pigmentation, and mucosal petechia.

Stage 2:

Fibrosis happens in cracked vesicles and ulcers when they mend, which is the sign of this stage.

Early sores show whitening of the oral mucosa.

More established sores incorporate vertical and round unmistakable sinewy groups in the buccal mucosa and around the mouth opening or lips, bringing about a mottled, marble like appearance of the mucosa in view of the vertical, thick, stringy groups running in a whitening mucosa. Particular discoveries incorporate the accompanying:

Decrease of the mouth opening (trismus).

Solid and little tongue.

Whitened and rough floor of the mouth.

Fibrotic and depigmented gingiva.

Rubbery delicate sense of taste with diminished portability.

Whitened and atrophic tonsils.

Contracted budlike uvula.

Sinking of the cheeks, not comparable with age or nutritious status.

Stage 3:

Screech of OSF are as per the following:

Leukoplakia is precancerous and is found in over 25% of people with OSF.

Discourse and hearing deficiencies may happen in view of inclusion of the tongue and the eustachian tubes.



Intermittent ulceration.

Torment in the ear or deafness.

Nasal pitch of voice.

Confinement of the development of the delicate sense of taste.

Diminishing and hardening of the lips.

Pigmentation of the oral mucosa.

Dryness of the mouth and consuming sensation.

Diminished mouth opening and tongue bulge.


Immunological ailments.

Outrageous climatic conditions.

Delayed insufficiency to iron and vitamins in the eating regimen.


Oral appearances of scleroderma

Oral appearances of Plummer Vinson disorder (Iron lack Anemia).


Finish Hemogram

Toludine blue test

Biopsy :- Incisional biopsy

Immunofluorescent test:

a) Direct b) Indirect

Administration AND PREVENTION:

The treatment of patients with OSF relies upon the level of clinical contribution. On the off chance that the malady is identified at a beginning period, suspension of the propensity is adequate. Most patients with OSMF give moderateto-serious arranging. Direct to-serious arranging of OSF is irreversible. Medicinal treatment is symptomatic and gone for enhancing mouth developments.

Not to devour areca nut and other incessant aggravation, for example, hot and zesty sustenance including chiles.

Guidance green verdant vegetables.

Organization of Vit. A, B complex and high protein consume less calories.

Organization of Antoxid OD for 6 – two months.

Organization of Lycored OD for 6 two months.

Keeping up legitimate oral cleanliness.

Supplementing the eating regimen with nourishments rich in vitamins A, B complex, and C and iron.

Swearing off hot liquids like tea, espresso.

Swearing off liquor.

Utilizing a dental specialist to round off sharp teeth and concentrate third molars.


Surgical treatment is shown in patients with extreme conditions. These incorporate:-

Basic extraction of the stringy groups: Excision can bring about contracture of the tissue and intensification of the condition.

Split-thickness skin joining following respective temporalis myotomy or coronoidectomy: Trismus related with OSF might be because of changes in the temporalis ligament auxiliary to OSF; subsequently, skin unions may assuage.

Nasolabial folds and lingual pedicle folds: Surgery performed just in patients with OSF in whom the tongue isn’t included.


Exercise In Oral Sub Mucous Fibrosis

Muscle extending practices for the mouth might be useful to anticipate advance restrictions of mouth opening strong mouth opening has been attempted with mouth choke and non-cyclic surgical screw.

Diathermy: Microwave diathermy appear to be better than short wave, in light of the fact that specific warming of juxtaepitheliel connective tissue is conceivable it acts by physio fibrinolysis of groups.

Ultrasound: Ultra sound selectivity bring the temperature up in some all around aggregated territories. Ultrasound turns out to be an effective profound warming methodology.

Trigeminal Neuralgia : Overview

Presentation :-

Trigeminal Nerve

Trigeminal neuralgia is a ceaseless torment condition that influences the trigeminal nerve, which conveys sensation from your face to your mind. In the event that you have trigeminal neuralgia, even mellow incitement of your face —, for example, from brushing your teeth or putting on cosmetics — may trigger a jar of unbearable agony.

You may at first experience short, mellow assaults. Yet, trigeminal neuralgia can advance and cause longer, more-visit episodes of burning agony. Trigeminal neuralgia influences ladies more frequently than men, and it will probably happen in individuals who are more established than 50.

On account of the assortment of treatment alternatives accessible, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn’t really mean you’re bound to an existence of agony. Specialists for the most part can adequately oversee trigeminal neuralgia with drugs, infusions or surgey


Trigeminal Neuralgia

Representation indicating branches of the trigeminal nerve

Trigeminal neuralgia manifestations may incorporate at least one of these examples:

(1)Episodes of serious, shooting or Tabbing torment that may feel like an electric stun

(2)Spontaneous assaults of torment or assaults activated by things, for example, touching the face, biting, talking or brushing teeth

Episodes of torment enduring from a couple of moments to a few minutes

(3)Episodes of a few assaults enduring days, weeks, months or longer — a few people have periods when they encounter no torment

Consistent hurting, consuming feeling that may happen before it advances into the fit like torment of trigeminal neuralgia

(4)Pain in territories provided by the trigeminal nerve, including the cheek, jaw, teeth, gums, lips, or less frequently the eye and brow

Torment influencing one side of the face at any given moment, however may once in a while influence the two sides of the face

(5)Pain centered in one spot or spread in a more extensive example


In trigeminal neuralgia, likewise called tic douloureux, the trigeminal nerve’s capacity is upset. For the most part, the issue is contact between an ordinary vein — for this situation, a supply route or a vein — and the trigeminal nerve at the base of your mind. This contact puts weight on the nerve and makes it glitch.

Trigeminal neuralgia can happen because of maturing, or it can be identified with different sclerosis or a comparable issue that harms the myelin sheath securing certain nerves. Trigeminal neuralgia can likewise be caused by a tumor packing the trigeminal nerve.

A few people may encounter trigeminal neuralgia because of a mind sore or different anomalies. In different cases, surgical wounds, stroke or facial injury might be in charge of trigeminal neuralgia.


Treatment In Trigeminal Neuralgia

The principal line of treatment is prescription.

The medication of decision is carbamazepine (Tegretol™), which disposes of or gets worthy torment help 69 percent of patients.

Baclofen (Lioresal™) is the second medication of decision and might be more viable if utilized with low-dosage carbamazepine.

Different medicines that might be compelling incorporate pimozide, phenytoin (Dilantin™), capsaicin, clonazepam (Klonopin™) and amitriptyline (Elavil™).

Surgical methods:-

(1)Percutaneous trigeminal radiofrequency rhizotomy

This method specifically decimates torment causing nerve strands while safeguarding touch filaments.

Lesioning methods incorporate radiofrequency thermocoagulation, glycerol infusion and mechanical injury. They are utilized for patients who are poor contender for real surgery.

Confusions can incorporate shortcoming in biting, facial deadness, changes in tearing or salivation and, less frequently, corneal ulcers, serious throbbing torment (anesthesia dolorosa) or meningitis.

(2)Microvascular decompression of the trigeminal nerve

This surgical system includes microsurgery to move the vessel, causing pressure far from the trigeminal nerve.

Help is frequently extensive; however the rate of facial deadness is considerably less than in particular rhizotomy and anesthesia dolorosa does not happen.

The methodology is best for patients more youthful than 65 with no critical medicinal or surgical hazard factors.

Conceivable intricacies incorporate asceptic meningitis, with head and neck solidness; major neurological issues, including deafness and facial nerve brokenness; mellow tactile misfortune; cranial nerve paralysis, causing twofold vision, facial shortcoming, hearing misfortune; and, on extremely uncommon events, postoperative draining and demise.

Microvascular decompression brings finish help to 75 percent to 80 percent of patients. The repeat rate is 5 percent to 17 percent.

Physiotherapy Management:-

*The points of physiotherapy administration:-

To diminish torment and practical impediment, and to enhance personal satisfaction.

Medicines incorporate the utilization of electro-physical specialist to ease torment amid intense beginning.

Manual treatment, practice treatment for Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) also

as self-knead for facial muscles can likewise reestablish patients’ capacities.

Transcutaneous electrical nerve incitement (TENS) as of now is one of the

most regularly utilized types of electroanalgesia

Interferential Therapy(IFT)

Interferential treatment (IFT) is another electro-physical methodology generally utilized

for torment administration in clinical circumstances. IFT is the utilization of substituting

medium recurrence current (4,000 Hz) with abundancy adjusted at low

recurrence (0– 250 Hz). A few hypothetical physiological instruments, for example,

the door control hypothesis, expanded course, slipping agony concealment,

square of nerve conduction, and fake treatment have been proposed in the writing to

bolster the pain relieving impacts of IFT diminishing torment for patients with trigeminal neuralgia by having them gotten

fifteen sessions of IFT with treatment span of thirty minutes. The force of

the motivation shifted by patient’s resistance. The outcomes recommended that

IFT could be considered as one of the electro-physical modalities in lessening

torment for trigeminal neuralgia.

Parkinsonism & Exercise Therapy :

parkinson 1
Parkinsonism Disease


Parkinsonism is a clinical disorder portrayed by tremor, bradykinesia, inflexibility, and postural shakiness.

Parkinsonism is any condition that causes a mix of the development anomalies found in Parkinson’s ailment —, for example, tremor, moderate development, debilitated discourse or muscle firmness — particularly coming about because of the loss of dopamine-containing nerve cells (neurons).

Life systems:-


Parkinsonism illness (PD) is a degenerative, dynamic issue that influences nerve cells in profound parts of the cerebrum called the basal ganglia and the substantia nigra. Nerve cells in the substantia nigra create the neurotransmitter dopamine and are in charge of handing-off messages that arrangement and control body development. For reasons not yet comprehended, the dopamine-delivering nerve cells of the substantia nigra start to cease to exist in a few people. At the point when 80 percent of dopamine is lost, PD side effects, for example, tremor, gradualness of development, solidness, and adjust issues happen.

Body development is controlled by an unpredictable chain of choices including between associated gatherings of nerve cells called ganglia. Data goes to a focal region of the cerebrum called the striatum, which works with the substantia nigra to send motivations forward and backward from the spinal rope to the mind. The basal ganglia and cerebellum are in charge of guaranteeing that development is done in a smooth, liquid way.


Posture In Parkinsonism

STAGE ONE – A Person as a rule has mellow manifestations, for example, tremors or shaking in a limb.Change, for example, poor stance, loss of balance,and strange outward appearances.

STAGE TWO – Symptoms influence the two appendages and the two sides of the body. The individual has for the most part has issue strolling or adjusting, and the failure to finish physical errands turns out to be more clear.

STAGE THREE – Symptoms can be extreme and incorporate the powerlessness to walk straight or stand. there is a detectable abating of physical developments.

STAGE FOUR – The capacity to walk is regularly restricted

STAGE FIVE – tHE PERSON is regularly unfit to deal with herself and will most likely be unable to stand or walk .she may require consistent one on one nursing care.
