Vertigo is a false sensation of movement, often including the feeling that the person or the things around him are spinning. This can be a frightening sensation that may be connected to such conditions as Meniere’s disease. A study involving 300 patients will provide some of the answers that those suffering from vertigo are looking for.  

The patients involved in this study were suffering from Meniere’s disease and vertigo averaging an intensity of 8.5 out of 10. Interestingly, each of these patients reported having some sort of whiplash-like injury at some point in the past. This is one point to remember because it shows there is a clear link between injuries to the head or neck and vertigo.

During the study, these patients were given adjustments to the atlas bone – the top bone of the neck. After just 6 weeks of care, the intensity of the condition was down from 8.5 to 3.0 out of 10. In fact, 291 patients saw the benefits that come from this type of care. That is 97% of those in the study. The patients were followed throughout the next 6 years. After 4 years, they reported that their intensity level had dropped even further to 0.8 out of 10.

Whiplash happens when the neck is thrust back and forth or side to side after an impact at speeds as low as 5 mph. This can happen during such things as a minor car accident, a sports injury, a fall, or any other type of physical trauma.

Seeking the Care of an Upper Cervical Chiropractor

If one is struggling with vertigo, it can be due to a head or neck injury – even if this occurred a long time ago. If the atlas bone – the C1 vertebra – moves out of position, it can place undue pressure on the brainstem resulting in a malfunction of the nervous system. Communication to the brain and body can be disrupted leading to such things as vertigo. We use a gentle method to help realign this bone. This is often all that is needed to see a decrease in symptoms or a complete resolution of vertigo.
