Vertigo is a condition of the inner ear and brain as they relate to neurological functions of the body. Living with vertigo familiarizes you with the following symptoms:
Vertigo impacts approximately 5 to 10% of the population until one reaches age 40. Then it affects about 40% of people.
Those who have this condition suffer not only physically but emotionally as they have their daily lives interrupted. Vertigo is frustrating for the one suffering from it, but also for the doctor trying to help a patient to cope. Each case of vertigo is as unique and the one dealing with it. Most medical doctors will focus on healing the individual symptoms listed above rather than the underlying cause.
Some recommendations may include exercises that work at correcting the problem or different over-the-counter and prescription drugs that can reduce dizziness. However, it is interesting to note that a link has been seen between the onset of vertigo and a blow to the head or neck that results in a problem within the ear, the nervous system, the brain, and certain nerves.

As an upper cervical chiropractor, I focus on the top two bones of the neck and making sure that these bones are in proper alignment. By doing so, I can help patients living with vertigo. If one has endured a trauma of any kind to the head or neck, the alignment of the atlas bone, the top bone of the neck, can be compromised. This puts pressure on the brainstem causing it to malfunction. Nerves are irritated and do not transmit proper signals. Vertigo is one possible result.
After performing a thorough examination to find the exact place that the problem lies, we can then create a care plan of care that is individualized to each patient. Studies have revealed success in this type of therapy.
