Vertigo has been described by those suffering from it as the sensation of spinning. It may that the person feels as if he is spinning or may perceive his environment as spinning. It is often referred to simply as dizziness. It can be a very frightening sensation that may cause one to feel lightheaded or lose his balance. What are some common reasons for vertigo and dizziness?
- A sudden drop in blood pressure due to standing or sitting up quickly from a lying position
- Motion sickness
Dizziness and vertigo are common reasons people visit their primary care doctor. This condition does not discriminate. Recently, Stephen Drew, second baseman for the NY Yankees was hit with a bout of it.
Drew was taken out of the game entirely after he experienced extreme dizziness and problems with equilibrium. Although it can be hard to pinpoint the exact reason for vertigo and dizziness, Drew felt that his was due to a head cold that left him with fluid in his ears. Whatever the reason, dizziness had a profound impact on this man, leaving him sitting in the dugout.
Help Available for Vertigo and Dizziness
A common reason for dizziness and vertigo is a misalignment in the C1 and C2 vertebrae of the neck. If these bones have moved out of their normal alignment, the nerves in this area can become irritated and not function at their optimum. The job of these nerves is to send signals to the brain about where the body is located in its environment. Hindering these signals can lead to such things as dizziness and vertigo.
We use a gentle method to help the neck bones to reposition themselves. By doing this, communication between the brain and body can be restored. Patients often report seeing a marked difference in the symptoms after having the misalignment corrected. Some are happy to note that they do not see either condition return, and they now live happier and healthier lives.
