What Are Dizziness and Vertigo?
Dizziness is a common ear problem with a host of symptoms, including feeling lightheaded, faint, unsteady, off-balance, or weak. Vertigo is a type of dizziness, described as a sensation in which you feel like you're spinning or in motion or the environment around you is spinning or in motion. Inner ear problems, like a calcium buildup or the result of a viral infection such as labyrinthitis, cause dizziness and vertigo. Our medical team at Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery specializes in ear conditions and balance disorders. We can conduct a health assessment to distinguish between vertigo and dizziness and determine the root cause. People with vertigo or dizziness frequently experience the following symptoms:
- Feeling faint
- Nausea or vomiting
- Poor balance or frequent falls

How Does Treatment for Dizziness and Vertigo Work?
Dizziness and vertigo can interfere with day-to-day living tasks, such as driving and working, and cause falls, which could lead to fractures. To treat these conditions, our medical care team finds the root cause. We may recommend a series of head and body movements and balance therapies. We may also recommend some dietary restrictions on coffee, alcohol, and processed or preserved foods. In other cases, prescribed medications may be ordered to relieve the symptoms associated with dizziness and vertigo, such as nausea or motion sickness. If the conditions are caused by infection or inflammation, our team may prescribe antibiotics or steroids to reduce swelling and cure the infection. A diuretic is another source we recommend for reducing fluid buildup.
Crystal Canyon ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery Reviews
I am very pleased to be a patient in Dr. Fratianni’s practice. My chronic ear/nasal issues were negatively affecting my quality of life and I needed expert advice. Dr. Fratianni took the time to advise me on my test results. She incorporated my results into a comprehensive medical plan, one that supports better health and wellness. Dr. Fratianni has given me the confidence to become my own advocate/ partner in my health care — for this I am thankful. Now, my quality of life has improved and I can enjoy my active lifestyle again. Thank you Crystal Canyon ENT
Went for hearing loss,1 ear. CCENT made an appintment for next day, took me on time, measured hearing in a sound-proof room, cleaned my ears, found an infection in the ear & nose, wrote a prescription & protocol, all in 30min, no rush, just no wasted time. Hearing’s now better than ever. Thanks!
I started my journey with Crystal Canyon in 2022. Tey are very informative and surgery was scheduled quickly. Well the day came for surgery and found out I had COVID. Surgery was cancelled. I got rescheduled for May of 2023, (this was due to my schedule not Crystal Canyons). When surgery came it went very well, I could not be happier. The results and outcome are life changing. Communication with the office is good. Doctor is attentive and takes time to explain things when you have questions. I definitely recommend and have recommended Crystal Canyon to other friends.
A truly great practice! Everyone there is super knowledgeable and seems to genuinely care about everyone they interact with - both in person and over the phone. I have had surgery through this clinic and have always had exceptional care.
Doctors are very knowledgeable. Great staff. Dr Fratianni is great.
