Can Chiropractic Help Vertigo?

Chiropractic is very effective at correcting structurally generated vertigo.  Vertigo is mostly caused by two possible mechanisms.  One is a misalignment of the upper neck, which will interfere with the function of the 7th and 8th cranial nerves.  This by itself can cause vertigo and is easily corrected with the chiropractic adjustment to the atlas, or top vertebrae.  The second most common cause of vertigo is fluid in the inner ear which causes the canaliths or ear crystals, to move out of their normal position.  This is commonly diagnosed as benign positional vertigo.  This can usually be cleared by doing a canalith repositioning maneuver.  We provide both of these procedures at The Fix on a regular basis.
