Vertigo may be related to a common misalignment in the top bone of the spine, the atlas. A misalignment in this sensitive area can affect the ears, brainstem, and blood flow to the head. Case studies have revealed that patients who have suffered head or neck injuries (i.e. whiplash) often see an end to vertigo after gentle atlas adjustments.
If you are suffering from chronic bouts of vertigo, especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, contact an upper cervical chiropractor near you to learn more.
