Chiropractic Care is for Vertigo Relief Too In Springfield, IL

Hey everybody, this is Dr. Pat from the Springfield Wellness Center, and today we’re gonna be talking about vertigo, and about how chiropractic can help with vertigo.

Vertigo is a condition that involves dizziness, unsteadiness, balance issues, it can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches, it can cause a whole array of uncomfortable symptoms for people who suffer from this. And it’s our, it’s our goal to help people with this stuff. Vertigo is usually caused by dislodging of the crystals that are within the inner ear area. And when that happens, it can start to distort, you know, our sense of reality and what we can see and how we perceive the world. And it’s one of those things that again, it makes people very uncomfortable, and, you know, dysfunctional in a lot of cases as well. So one of the things that chiropractors can do is, we can help ensure that we have a strong healthy nervous system that can help us heal from this kind of stuff, as well as possible.

From a chiropractic standpoint, we always want to be looking at the upper part of the cervical spine, which is the neck.

So you know, C1, C2, C3 up in here, especially if it’s C1, these nerves, they branch in different directions. And one of the places they go is to the inner ear and help control those functions in there. And so we want to make sure that we’re addressing any issues that see one that could be contributing to why that area isn’t functioning well, because if the nerve going to that area isn’t functioning well, it’s hard to expect the things on the end of that nerve to function well at the same time. And so for this treatment, what we’re going to do is we’re going to utilize the activator, which is this little device right here to do the adjustment for the neck. Reason being, yes, chiropractors use their hands to adjust the neck a lot of times with vertigo, I don’t always do that, because again, that involves quick movement of the head and a rotational way, for someone with vertigo that could make their symptoms worse, because you’re moving the head in a very quick and rapid position there. And so for this, I’m gonna keep it simple, we’re gonna use the activator and help reposition that vertebrae here, I’m just going to demonstrate that. So we could check through here and place it right on here. Just like that, and that helps to reposition things into the right spot. And it’s that simple. You know, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

It’s a pretty simple, but effective treatment there to help reposition the spine, and make sure that there’s no pressure on those nerves that are going to the inner part of the ear.

So if you’re someone who has vertigo, or if you know someone who has vertigo, friends, family members, acquaintances, you know, share these videos with them because they can really help give people you know, a different angle to approach this because perhaps they’ve been trying medications or tried different therapies. And maybe they’re feeling stuck and you know, chiropractic, some of the other things that we can do here at the office. Those are other avenues that possibly could lead to relief and an improvement in quality of life for these people. So if you wouldn’t, please share this video, and we’ll see you on the next one.
