The fact is that just about everyone experiences dizziness at one time or another. When we’re kids, we do it on purpose, spinning in a circle or getting on the merry-go-round and having someone else spin us. As a grown up, however, dizziness can be concerning. How can you tell an isolated incident from something you need to be more concerned about? Here are a few things to watch out for.

Concerns About Dizziness

If you have experienced a recent head injury, dizziness is a good sign that you suffered a concussion. It is also likely that you have suffered a misalignment of the upper cervical spine. Such a subluxation can affect blood flow to the brain, place pressure on the brainstem, or interfere with the vestibulocochlear nerve. Any of these factors can result in dizziness.

If you get migraines regularly, it is likely that the two are connected. In fact, about 40% of migraines also present with dizziness either before, during, or following the attack. Migraines that occur along with vertigo may have a similar underlying cause noted above. You may be able to remember a head or neck injury, even one that occurred a while ago, that started the migraines and dizziness.

If you are having speech problems, vision problems, numbness, weakness, and other symptoms of stroke along with the dizziness, it is time to call for an ambulance. When it comes to stroke, the speed of response is vital to limit permanent damage.

Fixing the Underlying Cause of Dizziness

If your dizziness is related to an injury or migraines, upper cervical chiropractic is a great drug-free way to seek assistance. The focus of upper cervical care is on correcting C1 and C2 subluxations that affect brainstem function, blood flow, and nerve function. When the misalignment is corrected, many patients see immediate benefits and fewer, less severe dizziness problems.

Vertigo Relief, Dizziness Relief, Dizzy, Meniere’s Relief, Vertigo, Dizziness, Meniere’s , Meniere’s Disease Vertigo is a very common health condition that involves the sensation of things being in movement around the body when no motion is taking place. A classic example is the feeling that the room is spinning around a person who is standing still, sitting, or even lying down. Here are a few things you may not know about this common health ailment.

Vertigo Can Be a Symptom of a Migraine

Vestibular migraines in particular often present with vertigo as a symptom. In fact, this type of a migraine may not even be accompanied by the severe head pain that is usually associated with migraines. Such a migraine may only last for a few moments, but in severe cases, symptoms may continue for several days at a time.  

The Link Between Stress and Vertigo

Stress and vertigo have been linked through the body’s natural “fight or flight” mechanism. When anxiety results in coursing adrenaline, a person can experience palpitations and unsteadiness. The ground may seem to be moving even though no actual motion is taking place.

Vertigo May Have a Simple Treatment

Regardless of whether your vertigo is caused by migraines, stress, or another factor, you may benefit from one gentle and natural treatment—upper cervical chiropractic care. When the upper neck is misaligned, it can put pressure on the brainstem. It can also affect the vestibulocochlear nerve which is responsible for communicating the body’s location to the brain. When these central nervous system components are adversely affected, vertigo can be the result.

At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Sacramento, we utilize the NUCCA and QSM3 methods to detect and correct specific misalignments in a very precise way. After a detailed patient history and an examination that includes x-rays, a specific correction plan is developed for each individual patient. The results are long-lasting and can benefit overall body health.

Vertigo Relief, Dizziness Relief, Dizzy, Meniere’s Relief, Vertigo, Dizziness, Meniere’s , Meniere’s Disease When dizziness or vertigo hits, it can cause a person anxiety. One minute he is fine and the next he is feeling lightheaded or as if he may lose his balance and fall. It is a very common reason why people seek out medical care. What are some common reasons for dizzy spells?

Dizziness does not discriminate. It can affect anyone at any time. Recently, Stephen Drew, a major league baseball player and second baseman for the NY Yankees, was completely out of the game due to dizziness. He was forced into the dugout due to problems with balance and dizzy spells. He felt that it was connected to a bad cold that he had recently suffered that left him with fluid build-up in his ears. It can be hard to find the exact cause of dizziness.

Can Upper Cervical Chiropractors Help with Vertigo and Dizziness?

We are happy to help our patients with their symptoms of vertigo and dizziness. One common cause that we see with our patients that are suffering from dizziness is that of a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. If either of the top two bones of the neck move out of alignment, reduction of nerve function can be a result. The main job of these nerves is to relay information to and from the brain and body about where the body is positioned and whether or not it is in balance.

Once we determine if our patients have this misalignment and where it is located, we can then work with them to correct it. We use a gentle technique that does not involve popping or twisting but effectively corrects the problem. Once the lines of communication are re-opened and nerve flow is back to normal, many patients report a decrease in dizziness. Quite a few even have had their symptoms go away entirely.

Vertigo Relief, Dizziness Relief, Dizzy, Meniere’s Relief, Vertigo, Dizziness, Meniere’s , Meniere’s Disease A study concerning Meniere’s disease and 139 patients revealed a very interesting fact. After receiving upper cervical chiropractic care, 136 of these people showed a marked reduction in their symptoms, particularly vertigo. Another intriguing fact is that all 139 had suffered some kind of trauma in the past leading them to be diagnosed with whiplash.

These patients received care for two years and were then reevaluated. On a symptom scale of 0-10 (0 being no symptoms whatsoever), they reported a change from 8.5 when they began to 1.4 after the period of care. Some stated that they still had very mild dizziness but no vertigo. Some had mild nausea but no vomiting. Their Meniere’s symptoms did not occur as frequently or as severely as in the past, and they were able to recover in less time.

Zeroing in on Meniere’s Disease

Let’s take a look at just one of those 139 participants in the above-mentioned study, Jack. He was diagnosed with Meniere’s after seeking care from an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist in 2001. To confirm the diagnosis, he had an MRI, an abnormal bithermal caloric test (ENG), and a positive audiological exam to detect hearing loss. The conclusion reached was that his Meniere’s disease began with a vehicle accident he experienced in 1994 that led to episodes of vertigo lasting up to a week at a time. He also had a feeling of fullness in the affected ear, headaches, and neck pain.

Jack began receiving upper cervical care and after one week, he saw fewer vertigo episodes. His walking improved as his legs were now in balance (it was found that one leg was 1” shorter than the other). Six weeks after cervical care, his results were as follows:

Jack’s experience shows that upper cervical chiropractic care can actually help someone who is suffering from Meniere’s disease. By correcting the upper neck misalignment, the body begins to communicate properly, and the natural healing process can begin. A healthy spine means a happier, healthier person.
