Does upper cervical chiropractic help vertigo?

Does upper cervical chiropractic help vertigo and dizziness?

You’re invited to listen/watch  four patients who have been helped by upper cervical chiropractors from around the country.

“Hi my name is Grace. I’ve been suffering from vertigo for ten plus years…I got my first adjustment a couple of days ago, and I was able to sleep on my back for the first time, sleep on my back, extend my arms and look up to the ceiling and not get vertigo…”

“I noticed I don’t have the vertigo anymore. It happened to me every time the weather changed. I would get dizzy. Vertigo is kind of like being sea sick…”

“Before my first correction, I had been hospitalized with vertigo…I could not turn on my right side…I was just too dizzy. I couldn’t drive. Even kind of movement was miserable. Sleeping was difficult…First correction, I can sleep on any side I want…Dark does not make me dizzy. The movement in the car does not make me dizzy. Everything is better.”

What is vertigo? Vertigo-defined

Vertigo is recurring dizziness, spinning sensations, and a loss of balance. More severe cases may include nausea, vomiting, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and blurred vision. Deposits of calcium crystals in the inner ear, called canalithiasis, are often blamed for vertigo symptoms.

Vertigo-like symptoms often come with other health problems, like Meniere’s Disease, Migraines, and inner-ear infection.

Often vertigo is not really the result of calcium deposits, but is in fact the result of a prior head to neck injury playing with the body’s ability to understand its position in space and time.

Head to neck injury can cause the atlas bone (C1) into a position that disrupts and even chokes the nerve signals from the brain. If the congestion at the bottom of the brain and the top of the neck affects the nerves that communicate with the inner ear, then vertigo-like symptoms can be the result.

This was certainly the experience of the upper cervical chiropractic patients who shared their stories above.
