Vertigo Q & A

What is vertigo?

Vertigo describes a feeling that you’re in motion even when you’re not moving. The condition causes persistent dizziness and other symptoms that can interfere with your quality of life, affect your balance, and increase your risk for falls and other injuries. 

There are two types of vertigo:

Peripheral vertigo

Peripheral vertigo is the most common type of vertigo that develops when there’s dysfunction in your vestibular nerve or your inner ear — two structures that play a role in your sense of balance.

Central vertigo

Central vertigo occurs when an infection, stroke, or other condition affects your brain’s function. This type of vertigo typically causes symptoms that are more severe than peripheral vertigo.

Health Advantage Physical Medicine offers comprehensive care for both types of vertigo. Practitionerscreate customized care plans for adults and children to ease existing vertigo symptoms and prevent additional complications.

When should I seek medical attention for vertigo?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Health Advantage Physical Medicine if you experience dizziness that worsens when you move your head or you feel like the room is spinning even when you’re lying still.

Other symptoms of vertigo can include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Ear ringing
  • Loss of balance

A comprehensive health evaluation can help identify the type of vertigo you have and its cause. Performing certain movements helps check your balance, and additional diagnostic imaging tests can help your chiropractor better understand your condition.

How does chiropractic care treat vertigo?

The chiropractic services available at Health Advantage Physical Medicine can help relieve symptoms of vertigo in several ways.

Manual spinal adjustments can alleviate pressure on nerves in your brain that play a role in your balance. Spinal adjustments can also remove blockages in the inner ear that disrupt your sense of balance.

In addition to routine chiropractic care, you may also benefit from:

  • Balance exercises
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy

Lifestyle and diet changes can help support your overall wellness and prevent recurrent vertigo issues.
