Vertigo is the sensation that either you or the things around you are spinning when, in fact, there is no movement. It is particularly common for those 40 years of age and older. More than 40% of those in this age range will have at least one experience of vertigo. It can be a very frightening experience and cause you to wonder if there is anything you can do for it. Let’s look at an example of what one woman went through to see that there is hope available.
A 37-year-old woman was presented with numerous, troubling symptoms after a fall down the stairs. For a week after the fall, she had numbness in her arms. She also experienced vertigo 3 to 4 times over the past 6 month period. She was suffering from brachioradial pruritus (BRP) – a skin condition that causes intense itching in the arms and upper part of the body. She reported also having a stiff neck.
She sought the care of an upper cervical chiropractor who found that she had a prominent misalignment in the upper cervical spine. He began to work with her to help realign these bones. Did it help?

After a period of just 3 months, she reported her neck pain had reduced by 70%. She had no more symptoms of BRP or vertigo. This certainly is good news for anyone suffering from any of these conditions.
Here at Besso Clinic, we are able to help our vertigo patients by offering them care for their upper cervical spine. We focus mainly on the C1 and C2 vertebrae as these are often easily misaligned. When this occurs, they place stress on the brainstem, leading it to send improper signals to and from the brain and body. This means the brain does not get the proper signals about where the body is located, leading to vertigo. We use a gentle method to help these bones realign and help our patients see relief from symptoms of vertigo.
