Relief for BPP Vertigo

As you have undoubtedly noticed, episodes of dizziness, balance-related conditions and vertigo increase with age. These are among the most common health problems in adults.

Vertigo in particular, presents in this office many times in the course of the year. Statistically, less than 5% of the adult population experiences true vertigo – but it is no laughing matter when it strikes. Symptoms may include the sensation of spinning, dizziness, loss of balance, ringing in the ears, rapid eye movements, nausea and vomiting.

The average age of a vertigo patient is around 50 years old and it is more common in women than men. Episodes can last a few seconds, minutes, hours or even days. Technically, vertigo is not a disease, it’s a symptom. The causes of vertigo are many, but inner ear problems seem to be the most common cause.

Another source of vertigo may very well relate to your neck and the thousand dollar words for that are Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). And this is where chiropractic care comes into play. If a misalignment in the upper neck is present, vertigo can be the end result.

If you or a family member suffers from vertigo and you’ve exhausted your options, you may find a solution with chiropractic care.
