Vertigo

If you have vertigo, your whole world seems to spin around you, and the nearest object to you can suddenly become your only way to stay upright! The dizziness can become so severe that you experience sweating, nausea, or even vomiting. The good news is that Travis Chiropractic in Tulsa can help!

 

Vertigo is a common complaint, especially after head and neck trauma. It may come from problems in the inner ear, or from disturbances in pathways in the nervous system. Since chiropractic care focuses on freeing the pathways of the nerves in the spine and throughout the body, it is an excellent source of help for vertigo.

Symptoms of Vertigo in Tulsa

Contrary to popular belief, vertigo is more than just dizziness. Call Dr. Travis for a full examination if any of these symptoms accompany your dizziness:

 

  • Blurry vision or difficulty focusing
  • Problems hearing, especially in one ear
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Trouble maintaining balance
  • Feeling fatigued or tired all the time
  • Double vision

Vertigo From Nerve Compression

There are different types and causes of vertigo. One type is caused by compression of nerves in the neck. A recent report in Livestrong had this to say:

 

“Your chiropractor will use manipulation targeting joints that are not moving properly. In the upper neck, faulty motion patterns create misinformation about body position and movement going from the joints to the brain. This type of vertigo, called cervicogenic vertigo, can be helped by chiropractic manipulation.”

 

Another type of vertigo stems from debris that has settled in the tubes of the inner ear. This debris often causes confusion to the hair-like sensors in the tubes resulting in vertigo. Chiropractic adjustments can be applied to move this debris around in the ear so that it no longer causes this nerve confusion, relieving your vertigo.
