While you may associate seeing a chiropractor with back or neck pain, there are many other conditions that they can help to treat. Vertigo is a condition that many individuals today experience, and it can be challenging to find a treatment option to help minimize the symptoms of vertigo. Performance Chiropractic is your local Westminster chiropractor. Here, we can work with you to understand your current symptoms and create a treatment plan to help with vertigo over the upcoming weeks and months.
What are the Common Symptoms of Vertigo?
Vertigo’s main symptoms are dizziness and a feeling of spinning. On top of that, individuals experiencing vertigo often have headaches, nausea, tinnitus and are unable to balance. Vertigo often occurs after a head or neck incident due to the disruption to the nerve pathways in your spinal column. On top of that, it can also be caused by damage to your inner ear, and an ear infection or pressure changes may impact this condition.
How Can a Chiropractor Help with Vertigo?
Using various exercises and manipulations, a chiropractor can help to minimize your symptoms of vertigo. The focus is often placed on the joints in the cervical spine, which may be out of place following an injury. Your chiropractor will work to realign these joints and offer improved pathways down your cervical spine.
To relieve vertigo symptoms caused by inner-ear troubles, your chiropractor can help to reposition the crystals that are found in the inner ear. Dr. Katie Gross can also offer you a few exercises to try at home, which may help to relieve the symptoms of vertigo when they appear again. Vertigo can be an incredibly unpleasant condition to deal with, and we understand how disruptive it can be to an individual’s life. Seeing a chiropractor is something that many individuals often neglect to do when suffering from vertigo, but it can really improve your quality of life when dealing with this condition.
