How does chiropractic care help with vertigo?

Chiropractic care is beneficial in managing vertigo for many people. Chiropractors use specialized techniques to address underlying musculoskeletal issues that may contribute to vertigo symptoms.

Vertigo can be caused by various factors, including:

  • Inner ear disturbances
  • Vestibular system dysfunction
  • Migraines
  • Spinal misalignments

Many cases of vertigo are caused by misalignments in the upper neck. At Atkins Chiropractic, the team uses unique techniques that address the source of vertigo to provide relief.

What role does the upper spine play in causing vertigo?

Many people experiencing dizziness and vertigo may have a misalignment in their craniocervical junction — the connection between the neck and skull. This misalignment prevents the perception of where your body is in space.

The Atkins Chiropractic team is trained to assess and correct misalignments in the craniocervical junction. Through a neurological examination and imaging of the upper neck, they identify any misalignment causing nerve signal interference. 

What should I expect during a chiropractic appointment for vertigo?

During your chiropractic appointment, the team conducts a thorough evaluation of your symptoms, medical history, and spinal health. They may have you undergo neurological exams and vestibular assessments. 

Based on this evaluation, the team develops a personalized treatment plan to address your vertigo symptoms.

The team corrects cervical misalignments using an extremely gentle and precise corrective procedure. This restores normal signals and improves your balance. 

The team also helps with soft tissue therapy, vestibular rehabilitation exercises, and lifestyle modifications. All chiropractic treatment is drug-free and natural. The goal is to help your body heal itself. 

The Atkins Chiropractic team also uses Atlas Orthogonal techniques, which promote your body’s natural healing process and restoration of balance. The techniques address the underlying misalignment, which helps reduce symptoms of vertigo.

How soon can chiropractic care help me get relief from vertigo?

It depends on your specific cause and how you respond to treatment. You may experience results immediately or need several sessions to experience a change in dizziness and vertigo symptoms. 

The team can help you understand your healing timeline.
