Exploring Vertigo: Symptoms, Causes, and Solutions through Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Have you felt the world spinning uncontrollably around you? Imagine everything twirling as you move or even glance sideways. Known as vertigo, this condition triggers nausea, vomiting, headaches, and loss of balance, increasing the risk of injuries.

Understanding Vertigo

Vertigo makes you feel like spinning while still. Several issues, including inner ear inflammation, Meniere’s disease, vestibular migraines, acoustic neuroma, neurological problems, and mainly Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), can cause this. BPPV, affecting about 65% of those with vertigo, happens when tiny ear crystals shift, irritating the inner ear and sparking severe spells after changing head positions.

Traditional Treatments

Doctors often prescribe Meclizine and Diazepam to ease the nausea and vomiting of vertigo. These drugs only relieve symptoms and can cause drowsiness. They do not cure the underlying issue.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic’s Role

Upper cervical chiropractic proves effective for vertigo, improving balance, posture, and coordination. It focuses on the nervous system’s role in maintaining balance. Misalignments in the atlas and axis vertebrae, near the brainstem and crucial nerves, often disrupt brain-spine communication and cause vertigo. This chiropractic care corrects these misalignments, targeting the root cause of vertigo.


Vertigo doesn’t have to control your life. If it affects you or someone you know, consider upper cervical chiropractic care. It could be the key to regaining balance and control. Schedule a consultation to see if it suits your needs.
