Do you have vertigo or dizziness in Vancouver WA? Often, our doctors at Homer Chiropractic & Rehab Clinic have patients who enter the office with complaints of dizziness. Many of these patients have tried other health care providers with little relief. Surprisingly, many of these patients report having received little information about what is causing their dizziness (vertigo) and the best available treatments. Contact us to see how chiropractic care can help.
Many people who report feeling dizzy are actually referring to two different situations. Sometimes people say that they feel dizzy when they actually mean that they feel like they are going to pass out/faint and others say they feel dizzy when they perceive objects around them spinning and moving. Vertigo is a medical term that is used to describe the second situation. It is important to differentiate between the two sensations because each has a different set of causes and appropriate treatments.
Your doctor at Homer Chiropractic & Rehab Clinic will be able to assist with telling the difference between the two.
VERTIGO IN VANCOUVER WA
Our doctors at Homer Chiropractic & Rehab Clinic have had patients present with a variety of different causes for their vertigo, but some have been more common than others. The following is a list of some of the most common causes of vertigo seen at our office:
Severe headaches such as migraine or tension headaches are known for creating the sensations of dizziness and sickness
Chronic earaches or damage to the inside of the ear
A lack of blood flow to the brain
Car accidents resulting in damage to the joints and ligaments throughout the spine
Most frequently misalignments or subluxations of the vertebrae in the neck
The above stated list of common causes of vertigo may seem unrelated, but they actually have one major thing in common. Each one of the areas mentioned plays an important role in how the body orients itself and maintains balance. Just like how many things with our health are controlled, once this balance is disrupted the body functions abnormally. Typically, the imbalance that results in vertigo is due to a disproportion of nervous system signals reaching the brain. These signals that would normally keep us balanced become distorted and scrambled resulting in symptoms of dizziness. Fortunately, our doctors at Homer Chiropractic & Rehab Clinic offer a unique approach to treatment and specialize in stabilizing nervous system function.
