By : Beyond Bones /

Hey guys, Dr. Brian here at Beyond Bones and we’re gonna talk about vertigo. Now Vertigo is one of the most upsetting, most concerning most disruptive symptoms of them all. And vertigo can come as many different symptoms or a combination of those symptoms under the bigger umbrella of vertigo.

The Symptoms Commonly Associated with Vertigo

Those symptoms can include nausea, balance problems, and sensation of spinning a lack of balance, they can include hearing problems like hearing loss or ringing in the ears. And so there is a great variety of symptoms which can be classified under vertigo. A few medical and health conditions are very well correlated and known to be related to vertigo. One of those is BPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, and others, mediators disease, inner ear problems are also very much related to vertigo. And so our tumors and strokes and head trauma and injuries to the neck and to the head. And we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the fact that a very common side effect of many medications for other symptoms may in fact, include vertigo.

And so lots and lots of different things cause vertigo, lots and lots of things may happen when a person is suffering from vertigo. And it’s important to remember that vertigo itself isn’t life threatening, a person isn’t going to die from it. But it’s absolutely one of the most terrifying and upsetting symptoms of it all because of the sense of powerlessness and loss of control that it brings with it.

We Perform a Comprehensive Examination

Now here at Beyond Bones, were very, very well equipped to handle vertigo to help with vertigo, in many, many cases. And there’s a few reasons for that. First of all, when a person comes in with vertigo as their chief complaint, it’s very, very important that we have them move through our thorough evaluation process. And that always starts with a conversation where we get to know the person you get to know what the possible causes and you know, instigating factors that mean maybe in that person’s life, when it comes to vertigo, what traumas or accidents they’ve had, that conversation sets us up to understand what may be causing the vertigo, and what we need to do to get it corrected.

And in many cases, after that conversation, that history part of the evaluation will do more physical exam type things that can be some chiropractic and some orthopedic type exams to check and see how well the person’s spine is moving, and to assess other causes of vertigo. And that’s likely to include seeing X rays of the person’s neck or cervical spine, if the neck is out of alignment, that can be putting pressure and stress on some of the relevant nerves, leading to those vertigo symptoms, and getting a clearer picture of the person’s overall health and their case. And the problem is it’s affecting now and their goals for the future. That’s the first step.

How We Treat Vertigo with Chiropractic Care

The second is getting those causes corrected, because that’s the way we take care of the vertigo, not just for now, but for the future for the long term. So this doesn’t keep happening again. And again and again. And so that you can go on living a normal and healthy and happy and productive life, the way that you deserve chiropractic adjustments or a manual way of restoring balance and ease to a person’s body and nervous system by correcting the positioning of the spinal bones, which may have been lost due to the different stresses in that person’s life. So the chiropractic adjustment is a very, very important and foundational way of getting rid of vertigo in many, many cases.

Now, there are some specific exercise that have been developed to help people with vertigo. A very common one that many people know is called athletes, that’s something that we may do to help a person with vertigo. And there are others as well to help restore the the inner mechanisms and working of the person’s body and nervous system as close back to normal as possible exercises specific to the upper upper neck to the inner ear, and then generally to the overall positioning and posture of the person’s spine.

Specific Exercises and Chiropractic Adjustments for Vertigo

Those specific exercises for vertigo, those general exercises for posture and health and the chiropractic adjustment. That’s what allows chiropractic to get such excellent and exciting results for people with vertigo so that they can stop suffering so that they can stop being worried about when the next episode is going to strike and paralyze them and debilitate them and stop them going through their day as they wish to do. That’s one of the main reasons taking the first step and coming on in here for an evaluation. That’s the first step toward opening the door of transformation to a great life free of vertigo.
