Are You Dizzy?

There are two symptoms that come into our office that each have multiple potential causes. Those two symptoms are headaches and dizziness. This newsletter we are going to address dizziness.
If patients come in with dizziness, we confirm there are no complimentary symptoms such as pressure on chest, pain in left arm, or other symptoms that may require a visit to a medical doctor and not a chiropractor. At Scheideman Chiropractic, we always acknowledge we are not the answer to EVERYTHING...

For example, dizziness can be cause by about 18 different things. Some of the options, however is a bone out of place, muscle that is tight and inflammation that is present around nerves in the neck that go to our balancing mechanism, our middle ear. So when we move bone, relax muscle, and decrease inflammation around that nerve, people's dizziness resolves.

Vertigo is another common complaint that comes into our office. The approach is the same as above.  

If you are a patient who has been through a medicinal or physical therapy model and continue to battle dizziness symptoms, come in and see if we can get you relief. 

Dizziness and Chiropractic...
Dizziness is a common symptom often caused by misalignment of the cervical spine, specifically C1. When the Atlas (C1) is out of alignment, you may also experience ringing in the ears, headaches, migraines, and heightened allergies. Adjusting the cervical spine helps reduce pressure on the spinal nerves and the brain stem, thus reducing pain. In a study of 30,000 chiropractic treatments, overall patients reported a 70-95% immediate improvement in their condition.

Vertigo, a more severe form of dizziness, can give the patient the illusion of being in motion when you are at rest. The most common form of vertigo is Begnin Parozusmal positional vertigo, or BPPV.
Symptoms include: 
*A sense that your surroundings are spinning   
*Loss of balance or unsteadiness   

BPPV is typically idiopathic, or without cause. It can occasionally be triggered by a blow to the head. While less common, damage to the inner ear can disrupt tiny sensory organs which help to monitor movement of your body and keep you head level.  Tiny crystals can become dislodged, causing increased sensitivity to head position changes. While BPPV can be bothersome, it is rarely serious. Special positioning exercises can help to move particles into the vestibule of the ear where they can be resolved.
