Neurological Chiropractic Treatment Options for Vertigo
While everyone feels dizzy sometimes, temporary unsteadiness is nothing compared to vertigo. Vertigo makes you feel like you are spinning when you’re sitting or standing in a stationary position. If you experience vertigo, it can be debilitating to your everyday life and can make you feel sick, cause difficulty when walking, or disturb your hearing and vision.
Looking for a holistic treatment? Neurological chiropractic bridges the communication between your inner ear, brain, and spine so you can overcome vertigo and live your life once again.
What is Vertigo?
Directly related to your inner ear, vertigo is a medical condition caused by benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BBPV), Meniere's disease, or vestibular neuritis. Vertigo causes brief episodes of dizziness that is often triggered by moving your head, inflammation, or pressure changes.
Symptoms of Vertigo
Vertigo is often a symptom of those who have experienced a neck or head trauma due to damaged nerve pathways, leaving the spinal column misaligned. While dizziness is a common vertigo symptom, you may also experience:
- Lack of balance
- Ringing in ears
- Loss of hearing
How Neurological Chiropractic Treats Vertigo
With the practice of neurological chiropractic, also known as functional neurology, your chiropractor will perform a series of manipulations to help you overcome vertigo. Neurological chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive treatment option that doesn’t include surgery or medication.
Through spinal manipulation, your chiropractor can target joints within the body to realign your upper neck muscles to the brain. Manipulations help your nervous system operate properly with nerve pathways and thus improve your balance.
This type of maneuver helps clear debris settled within your vestibulocochlear apparatus, or “balance center.” If there is too much debris piled in the center, your chiropractor will maneuver your head into various positions to move the debris within the inner ear.
