Dizziness and vertigo are mild, temporary conditions for most people, but for others, such as those with Meniere’s Disease, balance and clear-headedness is a daily struggle. Meniere’s Disease is characterized by a feeling the world is spinning. The condition typically stems from a problem in the inner ear, which may be caused by trauma or other types of injury. Vertigo and feelings of dizziness, on the other hand, are very common with head and neck trauma, although they can also stem from inner ear problems.
The good news is that each one of these conditions has been proven to respond well to chiropractic adjustments!
How Chiropractic Adjustments Can Help Alleviate Feelings of Dizziness
Chiropractic adjustments in Newark, DE that correct spinal subluxations and restore pathways of the nervous system can reduce or even eliminate dizziness and vertigo while the neck and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) adjustments have proven effective at reducing Meniere’s symptoms.
- Restore the proper flow of spinal fluid. Subluxations can cause abnormal flow of cerebral spinal fluid, which, in turn, can cause fluid to build up in the inner ear causing pressure and upsetting the ear’s delicate balance. This pressure can lead to feelings of dizziness and, perhaps, Meniere’s Disease. Chiropractic care can restore the proper flow of spinal fluid, reducing fluid build up, restoring balance to the inner ear and alleviating dizziness and vertigo.
- Restore normal nervous system communications. The chiropractic manipulation of joints and subluxations can restore proper movement and function to the jaw, neck, and spine, which restores normal communications between the body and the brain. Miscommunication about body positioning and movement has been attributed to dizziness and vertigo. Removing communication barriers may be enough to alleviate symptoms.
Chiropractic Care Provides Whole Health Benefits
Beyond the physical changes chiropractic can provide, chiropractors are a wealth of health information. In some cases, vertigo and dizziness can be attributed to other conditions such as a poor diet, too much caffeine, medications, or even anxiety and stress. Since chiropractors focus on the whole person and not just the area of complaint, they can be an excellent resource for helping you to identify your triggers, adopt daily habits that can help reduce symptoms, and trying alternative treatments like meditation, exercise, or relaxation techniques. Together, with adjustments, simple lifestyle changes may be enough to bring you long-term relief.
