The cause may be a dysfunction of the vestibular system that has to do with the inner ear. The vestibular system is responsible for balance and spatial orientation.

Is There Anything to Help a Person Cope with Vertigo?

Upper cervical chiropractors have seen great success in treating patients suffering from vertigo. Often, vertigo is brought on by a misalignment in the upper neck area. This could have occurred due to a fall, an accident, or a sports injury—even if it happened a long time ago. We specialize in finding these misalignments using the latest technology. We will then work with our patients to find the treatment plan that provides maximum benefit.

Research indicates that many vertigo patients have seen symptoms improved by treatment from an upper cervical chiropractor. Our own patients can attest to the fact that they have also received an improvement in their condition. Some have even had their vertigo go away completely.
