Vertigo – Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

What is Vertigo?

Vertigo, also known as dizziness, is a sensation of movement or spinning that is sometimes associated with other physical symptoms. One of the common causes of vertigo is Neck related vertigo, also known as Cervicogenic Vertigo. This can be caused by neck trauma, a build-up of tension in the postural muscles of the neck and/or restricted movement of the head and neck. It can be a very disabling and scary complaint for our patients. At North Shore Family Chiropractors in Chatswood, Vertigo or dizziness treatment is something we offer on a regular basis. It estimated that 30% of the elderly experience Vertigo or dizziness at some time.

How can Vertigo be treated?

Treatment for Vertigo and Dizziness will depend on the results of your examination but may include:
  • chiropractic adjustments and joint mobilisation
  • positioning procedures
  • balancing exercises to ‘retrain’ the nervous system
  • lifestyle changes such as managing stress, diet, and exercise.

How can Chiropractic care relieve Vertigo and Dizziness?

If you have Vertigo and Dizziness, North Shore Family Chiropractors, Chatswood may be able to help you through chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic adjustments may target joints that are not moving properly. These unhealthy movements may result in misinformation about body position and movement going from your joints to the brain. Chiropractic adjustments help to improve the quality and accuracy of the communication between the body and the brain.

We use the most researched chiropractic technique in the world, Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP)which we integrate with traditional Chiropractic treatment. This is a scientific approach to spinal realignment and pain relief. When the spine assumes it’s healthy and ideal alignment it is performs at it’s best, helping to prevent symptoms like Dizziness and Vertigo.

Positioning Manoeuvres are another treatment that can assist with Vertigo and Dizziness caused by inner ear problems. Your balance centre is located in the inner ear and this area of the body sends information to the central nervous system about your body position and movement. Sometimes debris may settle in the inner ear and positioning maneuvers can assist in moving the debris that may be impacting the inner ear, which may be causing your Vertigo and Dizziness.

If you are experiencing Vertigo or Dizziness, then contact our friendly clinic at North Shore Family Chiropractors in Chatswood to book in for an appointment and find out more about how we can support you in the treatment of your condition.

    What are the best exercises for Vertigo?

    If you are experiencing Vertigo and Dizziness, it is crucial to consult with your Chiropractic Doctor about appropriate exercise as you are more likely to be at risk for falls. Decreasing physical activity is not a suitable long term solution to manage your Vertigo and Dizziness, so it’s important to find out the cause of your Vertigo and seek appropriate treatment.

    At North Shore Family Chiropractors Chatswood we offer a comprehensive exercise program as part of a holistic treatment regime based on your unique symptoms. These exercises are designed to improve your balance and coordination.
