Chiropractic Vertigo Treatment

Chiropractic professionals are familiar with the methods that will help you get over your vertigo because of the neurological link between vertigo and its causes—between the spine and the rest of the body.

During your initial visit, your chiropractor will inquire about your symptoms, medical history, and lifestyle. To rule out specific conditions, he might even get an x-ray. Then, your chiropractor will create a unique care plan for you to control your vertigo and regain your life once he has a complete grasp of your condition.

Your treatment strategy may consist of the following, depending on the origin of your vertigo, its length, and the intensity of your symptoms:

    • Your nervous system directs spinal adjustment. All the information is transferred from your body to your brain. Your nervous system includes your spine, which extends from your tailbone to your neck. Therefore, incorrect information regarding your body’s location and motion is communicated to your brain when the joints in your neck aren’t moving properly. Your chiropractor can enhance the communication between your body and brain and support the optimal performance of your nervous system by making adjustments to the joints in your upper neck and spine. This risk-free, hands-on method works particularly well for cervical vertigo (dizziness caused by poor neck posture, neck disorders, trauma to the head or neck, and whiplash).
  • Exercises are done at work and home: BPPV causes debris (crystals) to collect on your inner ear’s sensitive regions, which causes vertigo. To successfully move the debris to a safer location and relieve your vertigo, your chiropractor can give you a few exercises.
    • The canalith repositioning method is keeping your head in four positions for around 30 to 45 seconds each, or for as long as symptoms persist while holding the postures, under the guidance of your chiropractor.
    • The Epley manoeuvre can be done at home quickly and easily by turning your head in different directions while sitting on the edge of your bed, resting on your back, and sleeping on your side. Before recommending that you perform this movement independently, your chiropractor will demonstrate how to accomplish it.
  • The Brandt-Daroff method With your head angled, so your nose is facing upward, you perform this technique by lying for about 30 seconds on each side. Before recommending that you perform this movement independently, your chiropractor will demonstrate how to accomplish it.

To assist you manage your symptoms, your chiropractor may also advise making dietary and lifestyle modifications and using breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques.

Nobody should have to spend their entire life feeling dizzy and ill. However, if any of the following symptoms apply to you and you feel dizzy with a spinning sensation, visit a chiropractor. This is the first step toward curing your vertigo and living your life to the fullest.
