In the middle of a normal daily activity, the room suddenly spins while you are standing still. This and other sensations can have major impacts on day to day life. However, vertigo remains something that is difficult to treat. Along with vertigo, there are other conditions that are closely related. These include labyrinthitis, Meniere’s disease, and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). Often, other symptoms are felt as well, including headache, ringing in the ears, sweating, and nausea.

Typical Vertigo Treatment

Generally, one would consult with an ear, nose, and throat specialist when looking to treat vertigo. Typical treatments include steroids, anti-nausea medications, or what are known as vestibular suppressants (drugs that reduce motion sickness). These medications can provide relief, especially during intense episodes. Unfortunately, they are not able to bring lasting relief or attack vertigo at the root of the problem.

Natural Relief from Vertigo

Upper cervical chiropractic specializes in focusing in on a specific misalignment in the vertebrae of the upper neck. The vertebra named the atlas lies just under the brainstem. Should this bone shift out of its place, the abnormal position may put pressure on the brainstem.

This area functions as a pathway for signals being relayed to and from the brain. These signals include those about the body’s position. Interruption of the signals, or confusing them can lead to the symptoms described above.

Through precise and specific techniques, tailored to each individual, realignment can be realized. Once the atlas is in its correct position, normal function can be restored to the brainstem and other structures in that area. Should this be the cause of the vertigo one experiences, relief from its effects can be achieved in a gentle and natural way. Why not see if a consultation can bring such lasting results for you?
