How Neck Muscle Tension Triggers Worse Vertigo Episodes

Do you ever experience neck muscle tension that seems to come out of nowhere, leaving you feeling stiff and uncomfortable? Maybe you've noticed that shortly after this tension sets in, you begin to experience vertigo - a sensation of dizziness or spinning that can be both alarming and debilitating. If this scenario sounds familiar to you, you're not alone. 

Many people experience neck muscle stiffness and spinning sensations at the same time. Yet sadly, not many understand the intricate connection between the two health concerns.

Find out how these two issues relate with each other and how you can manage both with the help of an atlas bone adjustment. 

Understanding the Connection

Neck pain and vertigo are two conditions that can greatly impact a person's quality of life. While they may seem unrelated, there is often a link between the two. Understanding this connection can help individuals like you find relief from their symptoms and improve their overall well-being.

One of the main ways neck pain can trigger vertigo is through the neck muscles and joints. When these muscles become tight or irritated, they can send signals to the brain that can cause dizziness or spinning sensations. This can occur due to poor posture, injury, or other underlying conditions that affect the neck muscles and joints. 

The cervical spine, which consists of the atlas and axis bones play a critical role in maintaining balance. When the cervical spine is misaligned, signals sent to and from various body parts get disrupted. The fluid balance in the ears and head also suffer the impact because of the spinal misalignment’s effects on the blood vessels running along the neck.

Some common signs and symptoms of neck-related vertigo include:

  • Dizziness
  • Spinning sensations
  • Nausea
  • Headache 

These symptoms can be mild or severe and can occur at any time, often without warning. If you notice these symptoms and you have a history of neck injury or trauma, it may be worth it to consider seeking an Upper Cervical doctor to get your atlas and axis bones checked.

This intervention often results in significant alleviation of neck discomfort and reduction in the frequency of vertigo episodes.
