How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Vertigo?

When we were children, we played the ring around the rosy game. Linking hands, a gaggle of children jumped around a circle and then spun around for a few seconds, before finally falling to the ground. We were thrilled and excited to experience the resulting dizziness. But that’s because the dizziness lasted for a few short seconds.

For people who suffer from vertigo, this feeling of dizziness lasts for a much longer time. Vertigo isn’t a game or a joking matter. It strikes when the patient is either standing still or in motion. Imagine feeling dizzy and disoriented while you’re driving, giving a speech or playing your favorite sport. This feeling of dizziness may also surface alongside nausea and intense sweating. That’s how serious this condition can be.

Contrary to common misconceptions, vertigo is not a disease per se. Rather; it is a symptom of an underlying problem in the body. Vertigo is often the aftermath of:

    • Head and neck trauma.
    • Nervous system disorders, often due to disturbance in the pathways of the CNS.
    • Inner ear problems
    • Neurological disease such as a brain tumor or a stroke.
    • Problems in the spinal joints and/or ligament.
    • Misalignment in the C1 and C2 bones in the neck.

 Chiropractic Care Is The Best Treatment Option for Vertigo.

You’re probably tired of the symptoms of vertigo. So tired, in fact, that you want a lasting solution to your vertigo. Don’t worry. We’re here to help.

Over the years, researchers have been exploring various treatment options for vertigo. So far, chiropractic care has proved to be the most effective treatment alternative for various types of vertigo. In fact, one study revealed that vertigo patients experienced significant improvements in balance and neck pain after they received chiropractic care. Furthermore, the patients in the study felt significantly less dizzy and less disoriented after they’d received chiropractic care.

How Chiropractic Care Helps With Vertigo.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Depending on the symptoms of vertigo, the upper cervical chiropractor is likely to deliver an adjustment. The goal is to address the upper cervical spine, where you are most likely to have an injury and neurological dysfunction.

If there is an injury, it’s important to asses your upper cervical spine by an Upper Cervical Chiropractor p to set off the healing process in the body. Specific Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to solving your vertigo problems.

The Epley Maneuver 

This treatment option is often employed when vertigo has been caused by problems in the inner ear. This technique involves changing the position of misplaced bone constituent parts (also known as otoconia). You can learn this procedure from a Physical Therapists or Medical doctor that specializes in vertigo.

Specific Exercises

If the vertigo is a symptom of ear problems, the upper cervical chiropractor might recommend particular exercises. The physical exercises are designed to set off a healing process in the inner ear. 

After an initial assessment, your upper cervical chiropractor will decide the best course of action for you in treating the condition behind your vertigo. 

Lifestyle Adjustments

Sometimes, specific chiropractors recommend lifestyle changes and dietary adjustments. This is especially the case if the patient’s lifestyle choices seem to be triggering episodes of vertigo. Below are some of the lifestyle changes your specific chiropractor might suggest:

  • Get adequate sleep
  • Eat healthy foods (e.g. nuts, fruits, vegetables)
  • Say no to ultra-processed foods, fatty foods, and prepackaged foods)
  • Go on a low meat diet.
  • Avoid stressful situations.

Meditation

This option is often recommended alongside relaxation and breathing exercises. Upper cervical chiropractors sometimes recommend these techniques because they can significantly reduce symptoms of vertigo.
