What is Vertigo?
Have you ever wondered “what is vertigo?” The technical definition of vertigo is; “a sensation of whirling and loss of balance, associated particularly with looking down from a great height, or caused by disease affecting the inner ear or the vestibular nerve.” It is a common effect after suffering injury to the upper cervical region of the human body. Vertigo causes range and can sometimes be hard to pinpoint.
The symptoms of vertigo can also vary widely from person to person. From causing dizziness and loss of balance to full on nausea, symptoms can affect us in different ways. Vertigo can be problematic when performing everyday tasks such as working out or playing with children. Due to the sometimes unknown cause and varying symptoms, solutions may also vary. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustments are an option for treating those symptoms.
The average human’s head can weigh 10-13 pounds and is supported by the top two upper cervical bones in your neck. These bones can be referred to as the atlas and the axis. When the top bone (atlas) goes out of alignment, the head goes with it, causing the entire body to compensate. When the nervous system is irritated, upper cervical health issues can develop, such as vertigo.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is a specific approach to treating the neck by proven successful techniques. Dr. Nathan Berbereia performs a precise chiropractic analysis and uses cutting edge technology to treat your vertigo and dizziness.

After configuring the root of the vertigo, our careful and precise spinal adjustments allow the rest of your body to heal itself from the inside out. Once the upper cervical correction is made and your body imbalance is restored, muscles will begin to relax, blood and oxygen circulation will be increased, healing messages are transmitted from the brain to the affected area and the self healing process of your vertigo and dizziness begins.
As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, our goal is to keep your body functioning at 100%, so it can heal itself properly and you can live to your full potential.
