Vertigo is the feeling that the person or the things around him are spinning. It is more intense than dizziness. It can lead to problems with balance, nausea, and falls. What are some common health problems that bring about vertigo?

  • Neurological issues: Things such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis, or a brain hemorrhage can all be reasons for vertigo. These will be accompanied by other signs of the problem such as facial paralysis, problems with coordination, double vision, or slurred speech.
  • Vestibular migraine: Most people think of migraines as being head pain, and while that is one of the symptoms, they are neurovascular in nature. This means that there are others symptoms one can experience, such as vertigo and sensitivity to sound and light. Vertigo can happen before, during, or after a migraine.
  • Acoustic neuroma: The cause of vertigo in this situation is a non-cancerous growth on the vestibular nerve. Problems with the vestibular nerve lead to balance issues, tinnitus, hearing loss, and vertigo. Usually, the mass is slow growing. However, in rare cases, it may happen quickly and lead to dangerous complications.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Helps with Vertigo

Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on getting to the source of spinning sensation in patients. This involves examining the neck to see if a misalignment in the upper bones of the neck is to blame for vertigo symptoms. This is often the case. Next, a gentle adjustment that does not require popping or forcing the spine into alignment is used to make the correction. The healing properties of the body can take over, and normal communication between the brain and body may be restored. This is often all that is required to help a person get over the symptoms of vertigo. Adjustments are only given when needed.
