Vertigo is often idiopathic, meaning that the doctor can’t find out why it is happening again and again. One of the most overlooked underlying causes of vertigo is an upper cervical misalignment.

Therefore, we encourage all vertigo patients, especially if you don’t know the underlying cause, to seek upper cervical chiropractic care.
