Chronic Vertigo Sufferers Find Relief With Upper Cervical Chiropractic

There’s a link between upper cervical injury and vertigo. Studies suggest that neck trauma is the root cause of various types of vertigo.

In the upper cervical region, there are two neck bones (the C1 and C2 vertebrae), responsible for neck and head rotation and flexibility. However, they’re susceptible to varying degrees of injuries resulting from automobile crashes, and or whiplash events. Vertigo can manifest months or years after the initial upper cervical injury.

Neck trauma affects the nervous system and invariably, the entire body.  Hence the link between the upper cervical region and vertigo. If left unaddressed, neck injuries can result in vertigo.

Specific Chiropractic care addresses these traumas in the upper cervical area and specific care is provided in restoring the normal motion. This sets off a healing process in the body that allows the body to restore normal function. 

Upper cervical chiropractic care is effective in helping the following types of vertigo:

Benign Positional Vertigo: often occurs when calcified particles clog the ear canal and disrupt the nervous system. Episodes of vertigo can occur If BPV isn’t addressed,

Meniere’s disease: characterized by excess fluids in the ear, ringing ears, and dizziness. Vertigo episodes can last for minutes and hours.  Episodes make it impossible for people to handle basic tasks like driving, cooking or even working.

Disembarkment Syndrome is another common type of vertigo. Episodes often occur after boat rides and flights. During episodes, the sufferer feels their bodies are moving, swaying or bouncing.  Sufferers are unable to work, drive and manage tasks.

Specific Chiropractic care provides lasting relief from neck irritation and upper cervical injury. It is an effective option for anyone seeking help with vertigo.
