Vertigo Relief, Dizziness Relief, Dizzy, Meniere’s Relief, Vertigo, Dizziness, Meniere’s , Meniere’s Disease Vertigo and its cause remain a mystery among the medical community. The reason behind vertigo is discovered in only 50% of all cases. Often, it is due to a head or neck injury.

A study was performed in 2006 with 60 patients who were suffering from vertigo. Out of those 60, 56 of them recalled having some form of accident or injury in the past. Not all were a major trauma. Some of these included such things as:

  • Skiing accidents
  • Tripping and falling
  • Horseback riding injuries
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Vehicle accidents
  • Similar injuries that affect the head or neck

This can help us to see that there is a definite connection between head injury and the incidence of vertigo. Why is this the case? It has to do with the C1 and C2 vertebrae, the top two bones of the neck. The job of these bones is to protect the brainstem. However, if something has caused them to misalign, they can actually do harm to the brainstem instead, exerting undue pressure on it. It does not take much to cause these vertebrae to move out of proper alignment.

Realigning the Neck Can Lead to Elimination of Vertigo

As an upper cervical chiropractor, I am trained in finding misalignments of the upper neck vertebrae and then working to realign them. I use the latest diagnostic tools to help me find precisely where the misalignment lies.

Thankfully, a subluxation (misalignment) can be repaired. Through a number of low force adjustments to a specific area of the neck, the body can realign itself and its natural healing powers are able to take over. This removes away the pressure being placed on the brainstem. The end result may be a decrease in the symptoms of vertigo. It may even resolve entirely.

The above-mentioned study reports that all of the 60 patients saw some improvement in vertigo, with the majority of them seeing it go away completely. One particular patient had suffered for 37 years and was delighted to be free of vertigo after only one month of treatment.
