Vertigo is a sensation of spinning – a specific kind of dizziness that can be disorienting and debilitating at times. The dizziness that defines vertigo has one of two causes a disturbance in either the balance organs of the inner ear or parts of the brain or sensory nerve pathways. … Vertigo is a symptom rather than a medical condition.  People with vertigo typically describe it as feeling like they are:

  • Spinning
  • Tilting
  • Swaying
  • Unbalanced
  • Pulled to one direction
  • Feeling nauseated
  • Vomiting
  • Abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus)
  • Headache
  • Sweating
  • Ringing in the ears or hearing loss

 

Treatments for vertigo range from medications to treat the symptoms to surgery to remove tumor or repair injury to the brain or neck.  Chiropractic is a very effective treatment for vertigo.  If you suffer from vertigo and looking for a drug-free resolution, call my office today 401-433-3600.
