Can a chiropractor help with vertigo?

For many people around the world who live with the constant feeling of dizziness, carrying out everyday simple tasks can be debilitating and sometimes dangerous.

Can you imagine feeling dizzy and disorientated when trying to cross a busy road, or while having your bath, or cooking in the kitchen? It can be a very scary situation. A fall in any of these situations can result in serious injury or fatality.

Vertigo, which is another name for constant feelings of dizziness, is very common among people who suffer from neck or head trauma. It may also be caused by any disease or infection of the nervous system.

Vertigo is also a common condition found among people who have problems with their inner ear. 

Located inside our inner ears is the vestibulocochlear system, which is responsible for our bodies’ proper balance. The function of this balance system is to interact with the central nervous system on the body’s proper positioning and balance.

The following are some common types of vertigo.

Disembarkment Syndrome. Makes sufferers feel dizzy and nauseous immediately after a road trip or a flight.

Benign Positional Vertigo. This occurs when particles block the inner ears. This interferes with the brain’s ability to interpret the body’s proper positioning. Sufferers of this condition experience symptom of nervous system disorder. 

Meniere’s disease. Caused by excess fluids in the inner ear. Symptoms include aura, loss of hearing, tinnitus, headaches, and loss of balance.

Vertigo can be caused by ear diseases, problems in the ear and upper cervical trauma.

 

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Sufferers Of Vertigo Find Relief.

Positioned at the upper cervical region of our necks are two small bones, called the C1 and C2 bones. These two bones are very important because they are responsible for the smooth rotation and movement of our head and neck.

The C1 and C2 bones are delicate and susceptible to falling out of position and alignment whenever you whiplash your neck or suffer from a concussion or head and neck trauma, usually as a result of an accident. 

Upper cervical injuries can cause vertigo either immediately after the accident, or long after the accident.

Upper cervical chiropractors have succeeded in correcting the underlying cause of vertigo especially through administering precise adjustments and care that restores the nervous system function.

Before any care is provided, tests will be conducted using thermal imaging and digital x-rays. And if an upper cervical trauma is diagnosed, chiropractic care will be administered to correct the problems.

So if you’ve been suffering from vertigo, ring us up. We can help you find lasting relief. In most cases, symptoms of vertigo reduce or disappear after chiropractic care has been administered.
