Chiropractic Treatment For Vertigo

Chiropractic Treatment For Vertigo

Vertigo is the sensation of losing your balance, even when you're in a stationary position. It’s like everything around you is spinning continuously, making you nauseous. In some cases, people completely lose their balance and become vulnerable to fall injuries. Vertigo can be caused by irregularities in the brain, spine, or ears.


When it comes to medical treatment, there is no permanent cure for vertigo. The only medicine available is to help stop motion sickness and lightheadedness. However, there are alternative ways of treating vertigo safely. Chiropractic treatment and other physical therapy interventions are some of the effective options for reducing vertigo.



What Causes Vertigo?


Vertigo can be caused by a number of problems in the head and neck, though it is most often a result of inner ear conditions, such as: 

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. BPPV is the cause for the spinning, turning, and loss of balance. This is due to  calcium deposits accumulated on the inner ear, which affect the balance of your entire body.
  • Labyrinthitis. Labyrinthitis is caused by an inflammation of the inner ear. The ear infection may lead to hearing problems and loss of balance at the same time.
  • Meniere's Disease. The condition is responsible for sudden ringing in the ears and is one of the signs of vertigo. Meniere's disease is caused by the build-up of excess fluid in the ears. 



How Chiropractic Treatment Helps With Vertigo

  • Spine Adjustments. Vertigo can be a sign of problems in your brain or spine. Careful and thorough manipulation of your spine is needed to manage the symptoms of vertigo, starting from your neck down to your back. 
  • Epley Maneuver (Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers). Chiropractors use this technique to help patients with Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. This exercise aids in repositioning the calcium deposits since they are causing disturbances in the inner ear. It can also lessen the feeling of dizziness and lightheadedness. 

There are other therapeutic exercises your chiropractors will perform and recommend to lessen the severe symptoms of vertigo and relieve any discomfort. Instead of taking unproven medications, opt for safer treatments with long-term benefits like chiropractic treatment. In addition to helping with vertigo, Chiropractic also helps relieve many other underlying conditions of the musculoskeletal system.
