Vertigo is quite a common condition affecting as many as 10 percent of people in the United States under the age of 40. Once someone passes the age of 40, the number jumps to 40 percent! In recent years, 2.5 percent of visits to the emergency department were from vertigo.
Most of the time, vertigo originates from an issue within the vestibular system, which is responsible for one’s balance. When vertigo happens, a problem has occurred with either the way the brain is getting messages, the way the vestibular nerve is sending messages, or a problem within the inner ear.
Helping Vertigo Naturally
The trend in healthcare, as of late, is that of trying to care for issues in a natural, healthier way than taking medication. This leaves doctors trying to find drug-free help that works for their patients. In fact, one doctor has developed a form of a somersault that can help realign the crystals of the inner ear and eliminate vertigo. This may cause some to be concerned, as they are not able to do a somersault. So, is there another option?

Upper Cervical Care for Vertigo
A study was performed on 60 patients complaining of having vertigo. They all received care from an upper cervical chiropractor. As many as 80 percent of them saw their vertigo go away completely. The remaining 20 percent? They reported seeing a huge improvement in their vertigo. An interesting connection was made, however. All 60 participants reported having some sort of head trauma before the onset of vertigo. This shows a vital connection between a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck and vertigo.
Here in our Sacramento, California office, we help our vertigo patients by using a gentle method to realign the bones of the upper cervical spine that may be out of alignment. Once back in place, vertigo often improves or goes away entirely.
