Causes and Symptoms of Vertigo

Vertigo is a type of dizziness that can cause a feeling of spinning or whirling. The most common cause of vertigo is BPPV, or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, which occurs when tiny calcium particles become dislodged in the ear and cause the person to feel dizzy. Head or neck injuries can also lead to vertigo, as can inner ear infections or the use of certain medications. Some people may also experience vertigo when they move their head too quickly or make sudden changes in position.

Symptoms of vertigo can vary in severity and type. Most commonly, vertigo is caused by a problem with the inner ear and balance mechanisms in the brain. Symptoms of vertigo can include dizziness, lightheadedness, unsteadiness, feeling off balance, and a sense of spinning or whirling. Other symptoms such as visual disturbances, blurred vision, nausea or vomiting, and head and neck pain may also be experienced.

How Chiropractors Can Address These Symptoms

Chiropractic adjustments or manipulations may help alleviate a specific type of vertigo called cervical vertigo. This type of vertigo is caused by improperly-moving joints in the cervical spine following a neck injury, which results in incorrect information about movement and body position being sent to the brain. These incorrect signals may cause you to feel dizzy. Manipulations may be able to realign the joints and vertebrae in the cervical spine, correcting the nervous pathways and allowing for clearer communications.

Another common type of vertigo, (mentioned above) benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), is caused by the movement of calcium crystals around the inner ear. These crystals are from your otolith organs and make you sensitive to gravity. They can shift out of the organ and into other parts of the vestibular labyrinth, altering your center of balance and briefly making you feel dizzy.

To help rectify BPPV, your chiropractor may use the Epley maneuver, which maneuvers your head into different positions to reposition the crystals inside the inner ear.

How Long Does it Take for Chiropractic Care to Correct Vertigo?

At our Sacramento CA Chiropractic Office, we often see patients having significant symptom relief between their first and fourth visits. Many people find that their vertigo symptoms completely subside after just one session with a chiropractor. While promising, this shouldn’t be a reason to not follow through with the complete chiropractic corrective care plan. Depending on your Vertigo, you may need to have several adjustments to have longer-lasting results managing your vertigo.
