vertigo-facts-and-lasting-relief-in-vancouver-waVancouver WA vertigo relief can be yours without worries with upper cervical chiropractic. Vertigo is famous for causing a false feeling of spinning. You or the surroundings around may feel as if they’re whirling or spinning, but in reality, no physical movement occurred at all. Vertigo can be a common occurrence for some people. However, there are many facts about this condition that many people may not be completely aware of. Let’s have a look at some of those facts:  

  • When vertigo happens, it can make a person fall.

It is called a drop attack. When vertigo appears suddenly and severely, the vertigo patient may experience falling while being conscious.

  • Certain head positions can trigger vertigo attacks.

Positional vertigo is very most common. For example, when a person wakes up and sits up quickly, vertigo may occur. Other examples would include:

      • Rolling out of bed too fast
      • Standing up suddenly from a sitting position.
      • Bending forward to pick up something on the floor too quickly.
  • Ear infections can be one reason for vertigo.

Yes, it can be another cause of vertigo attacks. However, if your vertigo persists even after the ear infection is gone, it may be another health condition altogether.

  • A blood flow reduction in the brain causes vertigo.

If something is obstructing blood and oxygen flow to the brain, then vertigo attacks will often happen.

  • A subluxation in the neck is one root cause of vertigo.

Most people experience a misalignment due to any of the following reasons:

  • Car and sporting accidents
  • Head and neck traumas or injuries
  • Slip, trip, slide, and fall incidents
  • Whiplash 
  • Concussions

A misalignment in the upper cervical spine (neck) can be a serious thing because it causes several health issues. As a result, it can impede the proper blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow to and from your brain and body through the vertebral arteries. 


A Lasting Vancouver WA Vertigo Relief

Visit us here at Balanced Living Chiropractic in Vancouver, WA. Our upper cervical chiropractors use the NUCCA technique, a method that determines if a patient has a misalignment that caused their vertigo. We will find the exact location of the subluxation. It is a safe, precise, and very gentle way to correct the misalignment. 

Our accurate and low-force method allows for more lasting relief from vertigo. Aligning your spine enables the body’s natural healing abilities to kick off and repair the previous damage caused by the earlier subluxation or misalignment. This is often all that the body requires for patients to experience significant improvements in their vertigo symptoms.
