Dizziness & Vertigo

Our upper cervical adjustments can have a profound impact on those who suffer from dizziness and vertigo by restoring the natural connection between the brain and the body. That’s what alignment is all about.

The Differences Between Dizziness & Vertigo

Dizziness and vertigo are often used interchangeably, but they represent distinct experiences. While both sensations can be caused by similar factors such as inner ear disorders, vestibular system dysfunction, neurological conditions, medication side effects, or systemic illnesses, it's important to have proper diagnosis and treatment plans to managing these symptoms effectively.


Dizziness refers to a general sensation of lightheadedness or unsteadiness, often accompanied by a feeling of imbalance. It can be described as a spinning, floating, or rocking sensation.


Vertigo is a specific form of dizziness characterized by a false sense of movement or spinning of the surrounding environment, despite the person being stationary. It is often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and difficulty maintaining balance.

Common Symptoms and Pain Points

Patients who suffer from dizziness and vertigo often face several significant problems and pain points that can significantly impact their quality of life. Some of the common challenges experienced by these patients include: 

  • Loss of balance and falls

  • Disruption of daily activities

  • Emotional distress and anxiety

  • Impact on social life

  • Difficulty in work or education

  • Diagnostic challenges

It is important for patients experiencing dizziness and vertigo to seek medical attention to properly diagnose the underlying cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
