Dizziness is a feeling of lightheadedness that generally serves as a symptom of an underlying condition rather than as an illness in itself. A person who is dizzy may also feel woozy or lose his balance easily. As a result, it is important to identify the underlying cause and find a way to stop the dizzy spells from recurring.

The following are some common causes of dizziness (in no particular order):
When it comes to many cases of dizziness, the underlying problem is an upper cervical misalignment. Such misalignments can be due to sports injuries, car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and the like. These misalignments can put pressure on the brainstem, affect blood flow to the brain, and may even affect Eustachian tube function. Dizziness is just one possible result.
If you are experiencing dizzy spells, especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, be sure to seek out the help of an upper cervical chiropractor. A gentle adjustment may be your first step on the road to better health.
