Have you ever experienced this? You bend forward, turn your head, and the next thing you know, the room starts spinning and you feel like you’re going to fall. Chances are you have vertigo — a condition that causes dizziness.
There are many different causes of vertigo:
- Menier’s disease is typically caused by abnormal fluid in the middle ear.
- Disembarkment syndrome generally happens after being on a boat or airplane.
- Benign positional vertigo (BPV) can be due to problems in the inner ear.
One problem — many potential causes. But chiropractic care can help.
As you know, your nervous system controls every process in your body. The spinal nerves that radiate from the second vertebrae (C2) in the upper neck feed the blood supply to your ears, affecting the function of the ears and the balance centers within the ears. If these nerves are compromised by misalignment, chiropractic adjustment of the C2 vertebrae has been shown in many cases to help restore proper function to the ear. When the balance centers are functioning properly, your vertigo will likely lessen.
When consulting a chiropractor to help with your vertigo, any changes in the small bones of the upper part of your neck must be evaluated closely. Be sure to chose a family chiropractor who will perform a thorough evaluation.
