Restore Balance With Chiropractic

Restore Balance With Chiropractic

Ever feel light-headed when you stand up too quickly or after a hard workout? These common bouts of dizziness are quick and can happen to almost anyone. But can you imagine feeling dizzy for an entire day? That’s considered vertigo - a condition in which you feel dizzy or off-balance as if the world is spinning around you. Although vertigo can be a sign of health conditions that may require prompt medical attention (stroke, certain medications), it is often caused by an inner ear complication that may be related to spinal misalignments (subluxation). Vertigo can affect anyone but tends to affect women two to three times more often than men. Treatment for vertigo can vary based on its cause, but this is something that can be determined and possibly helped by your chiropractor.

Symptoms of Vertigo

Vertigo patients report feeling unbalanced, like the environment around them is spinning, causing them to sway or tilt.  Other symptoms include headache, sweating, ringing in the ears, nausea, vomiting and even anxiety.

Chiropractic to the rescue! 

Spinal manipulation through chiropractic adjustments is a safe and effective way to treat vertigo. This is because, in the upper neck, poor alignment and motion of the vertebrae can cause incorrect nerve signals within your inner ear, confusing the brain and causing vertigo. Your chiropractor will evaluate the spine and use gentle manipulation (adjustments) to restore normal joint mobility and improve nerve signals within the ear. In most cases, this helps relieve the vertigo symptoms.

Restoring Balance with Chiropractic

The ear is the center of our body’s balance, and in some patients, debris or fluid may build up and settle in sensitive areas within the tubes, causing incorrect signals of motion to the brain, resulting in vertigo. A chiropractor may use a technique called the “Epley Maneuver”- a simple, non-invasive movement therapy to help reposition the debris and eliminate vertigo symptoms.

If you are prone to vertigo, it helps to get regular chiropractic adjustments to keep your spine healthy and aligned. It is also advised to avoid alcohol, cigarettes, fried foods or excessive amounts of salt, as these can be triggers.
