Taking a Closer Look at Vertigo and Where to Find Help

Taking a Closer Look at Vertigo and Where to Find Help

Vertigo is often described as a spinning sensation in which a person feels as if he or the things in his environment are spinning. Vertigo is linked to a problem of the inner ear due to:

  • A buildup of small particles of calcium 

  • Inflammation 

  • Problems within the brain

There is more to vertigo than the false sensation of motion. Other symptoms include:

  • Tilting

  • Loss of balance

  • Hearing loss

  • Ringing in the ears

  • Nystagmus – abnormal eye movements

  • Sweating

  • Headache

  • Nausea and possible vomiting

Vertigo may last for a few minutes or as long as a few hours. Many people need to lie down until the sensation passes. Family doctors may recommend various ways to care for vertigo depending on what is causing the problem, but they mostly want to help the sufferer ride out the symptoms with as little discomfort as possible. For long-term solutions, it is important to address the root of what is causing vertigo. How is this done?

Natural Relief for Vertigo with Upper Cervical Care 

Vertigo has commonly been seen to arise due to an injury to the head or neck. It has been noted that many people seek care for vertigo following some sort of injury – even if it was minor. The top bone of the spine – the atlas – lies beneath the skull and is susceptible to misalignment due to its location and mobility. A misalignment here places the brainstem under stress, causing it to send improper signals to the brain about where the body is located in its environment. This can easily lead to vertigo.

Upper Cervical Care doctors offer an alternative way to care for vertigo. They use a gentle method that encourages the bones to move back into their original position without forcing them through cracking the neck. When the problem is corrected, proper communication is restored, and patients often see fewer signs of vertigo or a resolution of it altogether.
