Motion sickness and visual sensitivity
Many think motion sickness/ car sickness is just one of those things that you have to put up with and manage.
It means lots of people won’t be a passenger in a car, as it makes them feel worse, whereas driving themselves feels okay. People avoid cinemas, social events and other provoking areas as it can make them feel dizzy, clumsy and nauseous or a wide range of other symptoms, just by what they are seeing.
Yet, when they have an eye test, their eyes are fine!
Often, the cause is a neuro-ocular-vestibular dysfunction and thankfully there is help!
In a nutshell, the issue is with how the information from your eyes and vestibular system is processed by your brain. There can be a disconnect anywhere throughout the process leading to discrepancies, which can cause the unpleasant symptoms.
Thankfully, like many things with the body, this process can be improved with the correct approach and treatment.
If you would like more information regarding this or any other vestibular issues please just get in touch.
