Vertigo Symptoms: Can A Chiropractor Help?

Indeed, one of the unknown ways to get vertigo treatment is to go to a chiropractor. A chiropractor will help realign your spine to prevent pain and other adverse symptoms.

Dizziness, migraines and nausea associated with vertigo can be incredibly uncomfortable.

However, chiropractic treatment is a great way to get to stop the symptoms at their source.

Before we discuss how a chiropractor can help, let’s outline Vertigo symptoms.

Symptoms of Vertigo 

Debilitating and literally causing you to go off-balance, Vertigo can cause:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Feeling Unbalanced
  • Swaying or Tilting
  • Vomiting
  • Sweating
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Hearing loss
  • Jerking Eye Movements

The general symptoms of Vertigo may be slightly different for everyone. If you’re wondering what causes Vertigo, let’s dive into the potential reasons.

Chiropractor And Vertigo: Causes of Vertigo

Vertigo is typically caused by inner ear issues like:

  • BPPV (a.k.a. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) is when calcium clumps in your inner ear canals. Because the inner ear is responsible for head and body motion signals to your brain, any issues with your inner ear may cause the various Vertigo symptoms we addressed above
  • Certain medications that may cause damage to the ear
  • Migraine headaches
  • Meniere’s Disease, in which there is a buildup of fluid and pressure in the ear. This can also cause Tinnitus, as well as hearing loss
  • Viral infections such as Vestibular Neuritis in which the inner ear nerves are inflamed
  • Head or neck injury
  • Stroke or a Tumor

Can a chiropractor help with dizziness and Vertigo?

Absolutely! While Vertigo can often go away without getting treatment at all thanks to the power of your adaptable and malleable brain, some people need to get Vertigo treatment in order for it go away completely.

While chiropractic treatment for Vertigo will depend on the client’s health background, symptoms, and needs, here are some of the various treatments a chiropractor and his or her wellness team may use to treat Vertigo:

  1. Physical Therapy. Typically, a physical therapist will work alongside the chiropractor as he or she tries to strengthen your general vestibular system, which tells your brain how to move your head and body. While the physical therapist is doing this, your chiropractor may opt to use the Epley Maneuver.
  2. The Epley Maneuver. This is where the chiropractor tries to move inner ear debris to a harmless or safer location. The debris may be causing the Vertigo.
  3. Chiropractic Manipulation. Depending on the patient, a chiropractor may target joints using manipulation, especially in the neck.
  4. Brandt-Daroff Technique. This is when a person sits on the edge of a bed and fall first to one side, comes back up, and then goes to the other side.
  5. Changing Your Overall Habits. He or she may tell you to modify your diet, caffeine intake, medication use, and more.
