Finding Relief for Vertigo

There has been a definite link associated with a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae and vertigo. As an upper cervical chiropractor, I focus on helping realign these bones in a patient’s neck. If either the C1 (atlas) or C2 (axis) vertebra have moved out of place, it can place undue pressure on the brainstem hindering signals being sent to and from the brain and body. If the brain does not receive the right signals about where the body is located in its environment, vertigo may be the end result. By correcting these misalignments, a person often sees his vertigo lessen in the frequency or possibly go away completely.
