How Chiropractic Can Help with Vertigo and Dizziness: Power of Life Chiropractic. Victoria, MN
I distinctly remember one occasion as a kid when I was really sick. I was lying on my back in bed, eyes closed, and it felt like the entire room was spinning round-and-round. My head hurt. I felt nauseous. Nothing seemed to help. If you've ever had this experience, you know how awful it can be.
Millions of people suffer from vertigo and dizziness every year. For many, these symptoms can last for weeks, months, or even years. While there are many triggers and causes of vertigo, I ALWAYS recommend anyone suffering from these symptoms to be evaluated by a chiropractor. Here's why...
1) Vertigo can be caused by abnormal nerve-receptor activity.
Vertigo could be the result of abnormal input to the brain from various parts of the body (joints, eyes, ears, etc.). Since chiropractic is ALL about normalizing nerve communication, chiropractic is a great option for many people suffering with vertigo.
2) Abnormal joint-receptor activity in the neck is a major cause of vertigo.
Chiropractors are one of the few healthcare professionals that address problems with joint receptors in the neck that result in vertigo. I see this ALL the time in athletes and younger people who have "stiff necks" or a history of whiplash, concussions, or headaches.
3) Then there's THIS study showing 97% improvement in symptoms following chiropractic care.
Patients experienced longer periods of time without symptoms, less intense symptoms, and shorter duration of symptoms.
The Bottom Line: Vertigo is no fun. Chiropractic care is directly improves nerve and receptor function without intense medications or other invasive procedures. If you or a loved-one is suffering from dizziness or vertigo, have them schedule a free consultation at 952-443-9000.
