Helping to Manage Vertigo at The Way Health & Spine

Vertigo has the power to disrupt your life in ways you can’t imagine. Many individuals grappling with vertigo issues seek the expertise of a chiropractor and witness significant improvements in their condition. This condition, characterized by a sensation of dizziness, can turn even the simplest daily tasks into daunting challenges. Information about the exact causes of vertigo and the most effective treatments can be elusive for many, making the journey to relief quite confusing. The information here aims to shed light on common vertigo causes and shed light how chiropractic care can help find relief for this condition.

To understand vertigo’s underlying causes, it’s crucial to first recognize its common symptoms. Often, two different types of dizziness are mistakenly conflated with vertigo. Some individuals might describe feeling dizzy when they actually mean they’re on the brink of fainting or losing consciousness. Others might use the term dizzy to convey a sensation of objects around them spinning and moving. Vertigo specifically refers to the latter scenario where one experiences a spinning sensation. It’s vital to differentiate between these sensations as each has distinct causes and necessitates specific treatments.

Vertigo’s impact can vary from minor inconvenience to a sign of a serious underlying condition. Contrary to popular misconception, dizziness is not the sole symptom linked to vertigo. Common accompanying symptoms include:

  • Blurred vision or difficulty focusing
  • Hearing problems, especially in one ear
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Challenges in maintaining balance
  • Chronic fatigue or tiredness
  • Double vision

Causes of Vertigo

As mentioned earlier, vertigo can arise from a range of causes. Sometimes, it signals an underlying health issue, underscoring the importance of consulting a medical professional if you experience vertigo symptoms. Below are some common causes of vertigo:

  • Severe headaches like migraines or tension headaches
  • Chronic earaches or inner ear damage
  • Insufficient blood flow to the brain
  • Auto accidents leading to spinal joint and ligament damage
  • Misalignments or subluxations of the neck vertebrae

Clearly, vertigo often originates from problems involving the head, inner ear, and spine. These areas play a pivotal role in maintaining the body’s balance and orientation. Vertigo typically stems from disruptions in the nerve signals traveling from the spine to the brain. When these signals, which regulate balance, are distorted or scrambled, dizziness symptoms can manifest.

Chiropractic care presents a gentle and safe avenue for addressing the root causes of vertigo. The chiropractic journey commences with a comprehensive assessment aimed at pinpointing the exact trigger of your vertigo and formulating the most suitable treatment approach. Many individuals find that chiropractic adjustments have the potential to stabilize nervous system function and fully alleviate vertigo.
