Vertigo During Pregnancy: Could Atlas Subluxation Be a Factor?

Vertigo relief in Vancouver, WA, Vancouver WA Chiropractic

Dizziness is a common complaint during pregnancy, but when it progresses to vertigo (a spinning sensation), it can be particularly debilitating. While hormonal changes and blood pressure fluctuations often contribute to dizziness, there's another potential factor many expectant mothers aren't aware of: atlas subluxation. Keep reading to learn more about it and to find out how you can experience lasting vertigo relief in Vancouver, WA.


What is Atlas Subluxation?

The atlas is the topmost vertebra in your neck, responsible for supporting your head and protecting vital nerves and blood vessels. A misalignment of the atlas, known as atlas subluxation, can disrupt nerve function and blood flow, potentially triggering vertigo.


How Pregnancy Can Exacerbate Atlas Subluxation

Pregnancy brings about significant changes in your body's center of gravity and hormonal balance. These changes can stress your spine and increase the likelihood of an atlas subluxation. In addition, the ligaments that support your spine become more relaxed during pregnancy, making misalignments more likely.


Atlas Subluxation and Vertigo: The Connection

When the atlas is misaligned, it can irritate the brainstem and vestibular system, which are responsible for balance and spatial orientation. This irritation can lead to vertigo symptoms, including dizziness, spinning sensations, nausea, and difficulty with coordination.
