If you have ever had vertigo you know it is a terrible feeling. The room spins. You aren’t sure which direction is up or down and many people report wondering if perhaps they are having a stroke.
However terrible the symptoms, which often strike suddenly and randomly, Benign Positional Vertigo is a very common and treatable condition. Disturbances in the inner ear are what cause vertigo in most cases and often problems with the upper neck aggravate or even cause the underlying imbalance which leads to the symptoms.
Because of the nature of the human spine and neck, treatment often consists of 2-4 visits with the goal being to restore normal motion in the neck and reducing tension in the surrounding soft tissues. This allows the inner ear to “settle down” and the symptoms of vertigo often subside or disappear completely.
Over the years I have treated many cases of vertigo by simply adjusting the neck and massaging the upper neck muscles. If you have vertigo or tend to have episodes of vertigo call my office at 715-246-7500 to schedule an appointment. Chiropractic is a safe, drug free treatment that can potentially make a huge difference in your case.
