Vertigo can be tough to live with in Emmaus.  It can literally turn your world upside down!  It is a condition where you feel off-balance or dizzy and makes daily functions of life difficult to do.  There are many different causes of vertigo, however, the most commonly overlooked cause is a problem with the spine.

Symptoms of Vertigo

It is important to note that Vertigo is not that feeling you may get when you feel dizzy like you are going to pass out.  This condition is best described as feeling like you are spinning or objects around you are spinning.  Other symptoms include: loss of orientation or balance, ringing of the ears, blurry vision/difficulty focusing, double vision, fatigue, and associated nausea that may sometimes be accompanied by vomiting.

Intensity of vertigo or dizziness can vary from person to person.  Symptoms may be worse some days more than others or symptoms can come and go.  It is also common for symptoms to go away completely, only to come back in the future.

Causes of Vertigo

One possible indication that vertigo or dizziness may be coming from a problem with the spine is that a person’s symptoms are aggravated by movement.  For example, if you notice increased dizziness when turning your head to back out of a parking spot there is a higher likelihood that there is a problem with the spine.  

Other causes of Vertigo may be problems with the inner ear (Meniere’s disease), migraines or tension headaches, lack of blood flow to the brain, side effects of certain medications, and like previously mentioned subluxations or misalignments in the spine.

Vertigo commonly results from a disruption in the signals sent from the nerves of the spine to the brain. When signals that would normally keep us balanced become distorted symptoms of dizziness can occur.
