Vertigo and Dizziness
As a child, you may have played a game where you spun around in circles, collapsed in a chair, and watch the world spin around you. That feeling you brought on intentionally when you were a kid, is far less pleasurable as an adult; especially when you don't know exactly where it is coming from, or how to make it stop. One way that many have been able to treat vertigo and dizziness symptoms is by seeing their Clermont chiropractor at South Lake Wellness & Injury Center in Clermont, FL. Chiropractic treatments, combined with physical therapy, has been successful for many people who have symptoms of vertigo.
That spinning feeling is called vertigo, and it is often accompanied by basic dizziness, sweating, balance problems, nausea, and vomiting.
While spinning in circles may simulate vertigo, the reason why most cases of legitimate vertigo occur is due to problems with the inner ear, which regulates balance and spatial orientation.
Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
The most common form of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. This type of vertigo happens when small crystal-like particles move inside your ear when you change position. You may feel better if you stay still, but as soon as you start moving the spinning and nausea begin.
Labyrinthitis is a form of ear infection that can cause vertigo symptoms, which are triggered by inflammation of the inner ear.
Meniere's Disease has multiple symptoms, with vertigo being just one of them. In addition, a person with this condition can also experience hearing loss or ringing in the ears. Often a person with this disease has a sensation that their ears are blocked with fluid.
How Chiropractic Helps
While most think of chiropractic as helping with neck and back pain, it's scope is actually much wider. It works all along the spine, which includes the nervous system, which is key to controlling many cases of vertigo.
Manual Adjustment to Improve Communication with Nervous System
By optimizing the nervous system our chiropractors are able to help improve the lines of communication between the brain and other parts of the body, including the ear and immune system.
One repositioning technique used by many chiropractors can help vertigo symptoms in many cases. By placing the body in a specific tilting position, vertigo symptoms gradually subside.
