If you’ve been experiencing vertigo on a regular basis, then you’ll know how much it can reduce your quality of life. But feeling uncomfortably dizzy isn’t something you have to put up with on an ongoing basis.
Don’t despair if you’ve been to your family doctor and have had no relief.
Here’s how vertigo treatment from your local chiropractic can help.
Finding the source of vertigo
The most common cause of vertigo is an imbalance in the ear system, but the problem no real cure has been found.
When you visit your family doctor, he or she most likely will prescribe anti-nausea medication and some comforting words telling you vertigo usually resolves itself over time. The problem with that approach is it doesn’t help you cope with every-day activities – you can’t just stop engaging with your husband, friends, work, and your children.
The chiropractic solution
The chiropractic approach to vertigo treatment actively looks for the physical source of your dizziness. The most common cause of vertigo is an imbalance in your head, neck, and spine. This area is very delicate – if just one bone, tendon, muscle, or nerve is pinched or out of alignment, the imbalance will radiate out to the rest of your head.
When you have your first consultation, your chiropractor will examine your entire body balance to ensure the issue is not located somewhere else. Once the chiropractor has given you a thorough checkup, he or she can begin treatment focusing on releasing the tension and restoring the imbalance causing your vertigo.
Your chiropractor will give you guidance on gentle exercises you can do at home to help speed up your recovery.
Proper chiropractic care means you no longer must wait until the imbalance addresses itself over time. Chiropractic care can speed up recovery significantly.
One of the best thing chiropractic vertigo treatment can do for you is give you an ongoing awareness of your body, how you move it, how you use it, and how those actions contribute to your health and wellness.
While newcomers sometimes worry about the therapy’s efficacy, after a few sessions with a chiropractor most patients report significant reduction of symptoms and better over-all health.
