The Chiropractic Approach to Treating Vertigo

There are lots of things that can make a person’s head swoon — some for good reasons, like being in love, and others for troublesome reasons, like suffering from vertigo. Vertigo is a debilitating condition that involves severe dizziness and a spinning sensation, even when you are standing still. 

Vertigo most frequently develops from a malfunction in the way your inner ear and brain communicate with each other. Because the condition an essentially a neurological one, chiropractic can offer a holistic, effective treatment. At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, our highly qualified team of chiropractors and therapists will listen to your concerns and implement the necessary spinal manipulations and adjustments to help you overcome the condition. 

Chiropractic is particularly effective in treating cervical vertigo, which is caused by poor neck posture or trauma to the cervical spine, often from head injury. For this type of vertical, our aim is to realign the cervical joints and vertebrae, correcting the nervous pathways and alleviating symptoms.

The most common type of vertigo is known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), which is the result of the movement of crystals around the inner ear, altering your center of balance and briefly making you feel dizzy. Strategic maneuvers to your head by a trained chiropractor seek to reposition the crystals inside the inner ear so you can regain stability.

At the office of Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we believe that nobody should have to endure constant feelings of dizziness.
