What Is Vertigo?
Vertigo is a condition that gives you the feeling you lack balance. This leads to symptoms like dizziness, the feeling that the world is spinning around you. You may experience spinning, swaying, vomiting, nausea, sweating, hearing loss, headaches, and rapid eye movements.
What Causes Vertigo?
Vertigo has several potential causes. Sometimes, vertigo is linked to a condition of the inner ear in which calcium deposits form, but it can also be linked to a neck injury, head injury, medications, brain tumors, and other issues. It can also stem from migraine headaches. These conditions can cause balance issues.
How Do Chiropractors Treat Vertigo?
In many cases, people never receive treatment for vertigo. They may live through the symptoms unnecessarily, and the brain may adapt in some cases. Of course, this does not mean you have to live with vertigo. In fact, chiropractors can provide relief for many symptoms.
Chiropractors aid vertigo symptoms through vestibular rehabilitation, a form of physical therapy that addresses the signals the body sends to the brain about movement. The goal of this form of physical therapy is to train your body to have an appropriate response. Your chiropractor will also help you with head and body movements you can use to relieve symptoms when they are caused by calcium deposits.
Chiropractic manipulation can also provide balance for your system. It can target your joints and realign your muscles. You can perform exercises and manipulations at home as well.
A professional may also prescribe you some medication to address your vertigo. Often, these medications include those used to treat nausea. In some cases, a doctor will prescribe antibiotics to reduce the infection if it is the cause of vertigo. Medication can also be used to reduce the pressure that causes vertigo.
In rare cases, vertigo may be treated with surgery. Tumor removal may aid with the vertigo symptoms if this is the physical cause of the condition.
