Vertigo can be very difficult to deal with, especially when one never knows when the next episode will strike. It can make a person nervous about taking care of everyday matters due to not knowing if the room may begin spinning while one is on a ladder or driving a car, just to name a couple of dangerous situations. What are a few possible causes of vertigo?
How Vertigo Is Related to the NeckThe spine protects the spinal cord—a vital component in the central nervous system. If an upper cervical misalignment creates pressure on the spinal cord at the base of the skull, vertigo can result. At Upper Cervical Health Center in Fort Myers, we examine patients for upper cervical misalignments and provide gentle adjustments to correct this problem. This method has great potential for relieving symptoms like vertigo.
In one case study involving 60 patients who were suffering from vertigo, 48 patients saw complete resolution of vertigo in just one to six months of care. The other 12 patients all saw a significant reduction in vertigo. We strive to produce the same results for our patients.
