The Difference Between Treating The Effects Versus The Cause of Vertigo

Have you ever felt like you were spinning around in a merry-go-round just walking down the street or sitting in your office? It could be something serious. You might have vertigo.

Vertigo is a specific type of dizziness that is characterized by the sudden sensation that you are spinning. This feeling can come on suddenly and go away or it can last for a couple hours or days. Some experience nausea, vomiting, headaches and double vision. These symptoms greatly decreases a person’s quality of life at home or in the office.

Dizziness is one of the top reasons why people go to the emergency room. Vertigo can be a once-in-a-lifetime thing and sometimes just happens. However if a person experiences numerous bouts of dizziness and vertigo, it is very important to seek out a specialist to rule out a stroke, brain bleeding or even multiple sclerosis.

Once major health red flags are cleared, the options for people who suffer from vertigo are generally treated with prescription medications like calcium channel blockers, beta blockers and tricyclic antidepressants. Those drugs treat and mask the effects of vertigo.

However, sometime the cause of vertigo is overlooked by many doctors where it could be coming from the neck. All of the nerves in the body come from the brain into the upper cervical spine located at the top of the neck. Most of the nerves in the body pass through the top bone called the atlas. Accidents and injuries can misalign this important area of the spine. A gentle and specific re-alignment of the neck by an upper cervical specialist can be the answer to your vertigo problems. Proper alignment of the atlas in relation to the body can resume proper nervous system function where vertigo symptoms can disappear.
