This condition causes a sensation of spinning without your body actually moving. A common cause is stress and structural changes to the inner parts of the ear with age, injury or a family history of this condition. The inner ear controls your balance. And can be brought on by movement, especially sudden.
With vertigo a person may also feel swaying, imbalanced, headaches, sweating, nausea. The ear may also experience pressure, fluid-filled, pain or loss of hearing.
Medical treatments include antihistamines, anxiety medication and specific over the counter and prescribed medications. Included would be anti-nausea medication and others for the side effects. More aggressive medical treatments could be injections to disable the inner ear, or surgical removal. Then a person’s quality of life can be lowered, permanently.
Chiropractic approach includes looking at neuropathy causing vertigo, dizziness. An x-ray analysis can show the neck spine. When normal motion occurs between the bones, the nerve and blood flow from the brain and body stays relaxed. The body stays relaxed.
When the spine changes to an abnormal alignment, curve then the spinal joints loose motion. Then the nerves can get pinched/irritated causing the vertigo and dizziness.
Chiropractic adjustments can return motion to the spine, relaxing the nerves. Overtime the symptoms of vertigo can be relieved. Then retaking the x-rays can show an improved spine.
