Vertigo Chiropractic Care

Dizziness, known as vertigo, is a common issue that a chiropractor can help with. It makes you feel unsteady, especially when standing up, and certain things like noise can make it worse.

There are different kinds of vertigo. One type called positional vertigo is treated by moving your head in specific ways to fix the problem.

If you have Ménière’s vertigo, a chiropractor might suggest eating less salt and taking medicine to stop the dizziness. Our chiropractors figure out what kind of vertigo you have and treat it. Sometimes, if needed, we might send you to other doctors like ear, nose, and throat specialists, neurologists, or dentists.

Let’s understand how can a chiropractor in Murfreesboro provide additional help in managing and improving your vertigo symptoms.

What Is Vertigo?

Vertigo is like experiencing a strange feeling where things around you seem to shift or spin. It is making it feel as though the whole environment is whirling rapidly or you’re spinning around. This sensation creates a fear of falling at any moment.

It’s important not to mix up vertigo with simple dizziness. Dizziness involves a sense of instability and insecurity, but it doesn’t come with the perception of objects turning around you.

Vertigo is more than just feeling lightheaded. The episodes come on suddenly, and it’s an unsettling and disabling experience. By understanding, the difference between vertigo and dizziness will help you to recognize and address these sensations for a better management and relief from it.

Symptoms Of Vertigo

If you’re experiencing vertigo you might also feel sick. Let’s take a closer look at the signs that often come with vertigo.

  • Feeling like the world is spinning or moving rapidly
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Jerky and involuntary eye movements
  • Double and blurry vision
  • Trouble in focusing
  • Hearing loss, particularly in one ear
  • Ringing in the ears & extreme headaches
  • Balance issues or stumbling while walking
  • Loss of strength and a general feeling of weakness throughout the body
  • Sensitivity to light or noise

What Are Common Causes Of Vertigo?

Vertigo can be caused by various factors. Here are some common causes includes:

Inner Ear Issues: Problems within the inner ear, such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), where tiny particles disrupt balance, can cause vertigo.

Inflammation: Infections causing inflammation in the inner ear, like vestibular neuritis, are common culprits, often linked to viral infections.

Meniere’s Disease: Fluid buildup in the ear, a characteristic of Meniere’s disease, can result in vertigo.

Medications: Some medications, especially those for blood pressure, can lead to dizziness and vertigo as side effects.

Anxiety and Migraines: Conditions like anxiety and migraines can contribute to vertigo. It may occur due to low blood sugar levels.

Head Injuries: Vertigo can result from head injuries, emphasizing the importance of seeking medical attention for such cases.

Vertigo Treatment

Vertigo can be categorized by mainly three main types. Let’s understand all these types.

Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV):
Imagine feeling a sudden, strong dizziness when you move your head in certain ways – that’s Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. It happens because tiny particles disturb your inner ear balance. The spinning feeling goes away when you stop moving your head.

Vestibular Neuritis:
Vestibular Neuritis causes sudden and strong dizziness, often with nausea. It happens because a part of your ear gets inflamed due to a virus. Unlike BPPV, this dizziness isn’t tied to specific head movements and can last longer.

Meniere’s Disease:
Meniere’s Disease brings episodes of vertigo, hearing loss, ringing in the ears, and a full feeling in your ear. It’s because fluid builds up in your ear. These episodes can be unpredictable, varying in how strong and long they are, making daily life a bit challenging.

How Can A Chiropractor Help With Vertigo

Many vertigo patients report persistent fatigue, and chiropractic evaluation and treatment can often be effective in addressing vertigo and associated symptoms, including difficulties with balance. At Revolution Chiropractic Murfreesboro, our approach involves chiropractic manipulation on the upper neck or instructing exercises like the Brandt Daroff and Epley maneuvers for vertigo relief.

Chiropractic Approach to Vertigo:
Chiropractors focus on the spine’s alignment, and when treating vertigo, they often target the upper neck. By using chiropractic manipulation, they aim to correct misalignments that may be contributing to vertigo symptoms. Additionally, chiropractors may teach specific exercises, such as the Brandt Daroff and Epley maneuvers, which can be performed at home to alleviate vertigo.

Determining Treatment Parameters:
The specific treatment plan at Revolution Chiropractic considers factors like the frequency and severity of vertigo episodes and aims to diagnose the root cause. Once diagnosed, detailed treatment recommendations are provided, which may involve collaboration with other healthcare professionals such as otolaryngologists, dentists, or vestibular neurologists.

Collaborative Care for Faster Recovery:
Dr. Noriega, at Revolution Chiropractic Murfreesboro, emphasizes a collaborative approach to healthcare. Recommendations may include consultations with specialists like otolaryngologists, dentists, or vestibular neurologists to ensure a comprehensive and speedy pathway back to health for each patient.
