A person who is having the sensation of dizziness may not be sure if it is actually vertigo or simply disequilibrium.
Both of these conditions can indicate that an underlying issue is at work causing the body to not function properly. Here are some disorders that may be causing vertigo:
One underlying cause of vertigo can be due to previous accidents or injuries to the head or neck. A misalignment to the upper neck area may have happened. These types of misalignments can cause a disruption in the way the brain functions and communicates with the rest of the body, including the ears and the vestibular system.
Upper Cervical Doctors are specifically trained to detect these misalignments through special x-rays and examinations that will indicate whether or not a person’s vertigo is due to a problem in the upper neck. Many of our patients have reported a decrease in symptoms after seeking our care.
