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?
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.
