Did you suddenly experience feeling like the world is spinning around? Well, you were most likely going through a vertigo symptom. Vertigo causes an episode of imbalance, concentration problems, dizziness, and hearing loss.
Accidents that cause neck and upper back injuries are one of the common roots of vertigo. Understanding the connection between neck injuries and vertigo can help unlock vital solutions for vertigo relief in Vancouver.
How Neck and Head Injuries Causes Vertigo
A common thing among many patients with vertigo is having a history of neck or back injuries. Vertigo may develop in no time following major accidents such as car accidents, falls from a tall place, and sports injuries. Sometimes it takes years before the vertigo symptoms appear.
So, how does vertigo come into existence?
- Events like car injuries can cause whiplash, the sudden, forceful bending forward and backward of the neck. Whiplash can seriously affect the spine, muscles, and nerves around the upper cervical area.
- Neck injuries can result in upper cervical spine misalignment. Spine misalignment can lead to critical issues in the nervous system.
- Upper cervical spine problems and neck injuries can block or hinder communication between the brain and the body, including the inner ear (the one responsible for our balance and stability).
