Are you experiencing:
- Intense feelings of dizziness or spinning
- Nausea, vomiting and excessive sweating?
- Uneasy on your feet?
Dizziness is a widespread symptom for people that come to our chiropractic centre.
This is a distressing experience, and so if this is affecting you right now, then we sympathise with you.
The good news is that vertigo and feelings of dizziness are generally treatable conditions.
You may be wondering, why would I come to see a chiropractor if I am dizzy and experiencing vertigo?
Spinal alignment problems (especially those relating to the upper neck) can cause feelings of dizziness.
In many cases dizziness is related to stress, irritation or tension of your spinal cord and nervous system around your upper neck.
Due to the close relationship of the spine and nervous system, poor alignment or posture adds extra and unnecessary pressure to the spinal cord and nerves. This can often contribute or result in vertigo and dizziness.
Your chiropractor will use specific adjustments over time to correct your spinal alignment and posture. Subsequently, inflammation in surrounding tissue will often decrease allowing for both pain relief and increased mobility in the neck.
With improved spinal alignment there is less pressure within the spinal cord, potentially resulting in dizziness symptoms disappearing.
Of course, several other diseases and conditions can contribute to dizziness such as neurological disease, and in this case, we will refer you to a relevant medical specialist.
This is why our initial examination process is of utmost importance.
After learning about your story, we are going to be able to assess your condition and help you get rid of your vertigo/dizziness.
