Dizziness is the experience of feeling like the room is moving, or you are moving. You feel wobbly and off centre. Much like the experience you get from a rollercoaster ride.
There are many types of dizziness including: cervicogenic dizziness (dizziness caused from your neck), vertigo, Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s disease, Anxiety, lightheadedness from low blood pressure.
WHAT CAUSES DIZZINESS?
Due to the many types of dizziness it is important to correctly identify what type of dizziness you are suffering from.
Here are some common causes:
- Poor posture/spinal alignment
- Ear infections
- Ear Injury
- Low blood pressure
- Neurological conditions
Once we have ruled out more serious causes of dizziness such as neurological disorders or other pathology the most common cause of dizziness we see is cervicogenic dizziness (dizziness caused from your cervical spine), or BPPV.
This type of dizziness occurs from trauma in the neck, or poor spinal alignment. The poor alignment of the spine causes increase pressure on the nerves in the neck and the whole nervous system which can result in a variety of dizziness.
HOW DOES CHIROPRACTIC HELP?
At Proactive Health Chiropractic we take a holistic approach to helping you. We assess your entire body, rather than just looking at your neck and dizziness in isolation. Lifestyle factors are taken into consideration as potential contributors.
In conjunction with our chiropractic adjustments we also provide you with ergonomic, nutritional and exercise advice to help prevent the problem from returning in the future.
We are committed to helping people of all ages and body types experience a life free from pain and dysfunction.
Our method of adjusting focuses on assessing and improving your posture. Your posture is your spinal alignment, or, how well your spinal bones balance.
By ensuring your spine has great alignment it helps to remove the musculoskeletal imbalances which often contribute to dizziness, particularly dizziness originating from the cervical spine.
