Vertigo is the experience of sudden dizziness resulting in nausea and lightheadedness. Like back pain, neck pain, and migraines, vertigo is a symptom of an underlying medical cause or causes. Most cases of vertigo are related to disorders of the inner ear and can be triggered by sudden turns of the head.
If you are experiencing issues with vertigo and live in the Valrico or Brandon area, come visit our chiropractors. With the right approach, chiropractic care can produce significant improvements in vertigo symptoms. Though this neurological condition is rarely considered life-threatening, managing its symptoms can drastically alter your quality of life and relieve unnecessary stress.
Head And Neck Injuries May Cause Vertigo
Sudden incidences of vertigo may be caused by an injury to the head or neck. Nearly 5% of the population suffers from a head injury each year, and these injuries can seriously damage the inner ear, resulting in dizziness and lightheadedness. This specific kind of vertigo is often referred to as Post-Traumatic Vertigo.
Cervical Vertigo can occur after instances of neck trauma. For both types of vertigo, chiropractic care may help.
Common Risk Factors For Vertigo
Certain risk factors predispose a person to vertigo including:
- Inner ear infections
- Having a high stress lifestyle
- Alcohol consumption
- Head injuries
- Taking certain antidepressants
Also, females, individuals over the age of 50, and having family members with vertigo can increase a person’s risk for vertigo.
People with these risk factors should be especially proactive about chiropractic care so that they can manage this condition early. Regular chiropractic alignments could be key to relieving symptoms of vertigo and improving wellness overall.
Chiropractic Methods Alleviate Dizziness
For cases of vertigo, our chiropractors correct the alignment of the cervical vertebrae so that faulty motion patterns aren’t delivered to the brain about the body’s position and movement. This is especially relevant for those whose vertigo stems from head or neck injuries.
Additional exercises may be recommended by your Current Chiropractic doctor to help manage vertigo at home.
