When the mobility of neck joints is compromised, it can put pressure on the nerves, leading to dizziness or vertigo. Chiropractic care can effectively address these issues through targeted adjustments.

How Does Chiropractic Help?

Chiropractic adjustments focus on relieving pressure from the nerves in the neck. By restoring proper mobility to the neck joints, chiropractic care helps improve equilibrium and reduce dizziness.

Step One: A Comprehensive Assessment

First, a full examination is essential to determine the root cause of dizziness or vertigo. Our primary focus is on the neck, where many issues related to dizziness can originate. This evaluation includes checking the range of motion, performing cranial nerve exams, and conducting specific tests to rule out inner ear problems. If necessary, we refer patients to an ENT specialist.

Treatment Frequency and Techniques

Treatment frequency varies depending on the severity and specific needs of each patient. During a flare-up, more frequent visits may be necessary to balance the nervous system and alleviate nerve pressure. As symptoms improve, the time between visits can increase. We use gentle techniques like the Activator to help patients manage exacerbations or flare-ups effectively.

At-Home Care and Prevention

In addition to chiropractic, we provide exercise prescriptions that are tailored to each patient’s needs. While specific at-home exercises and remedies vary, maintaining good neck mobility and regular chiropractic care can help prevent future episodes of dizziness or vertigo.
