Many people are not aware of the connection between neck pain and vertigo. Vertigo is a kind of dizziness in which an individual has the feeling of a rotating movement when stationary. There are several causes attributed to this dizziness which ranges from low blood sugar, inner ear problems, multiple sclerosis, low blood sugar, anemia, and anxiety. It is important to determine the cause of dizziness after which an appropriate solution is a sort after.  There can be an underlying reason for different types of vertigo like disembarkment syndrome and Meniere’s disease, benign position vertigo which Redmond Chiropractic care can correct. Chiropractor Redmond WA doctors are trained to use orthopedic tests to differentiate between these types of vertigo and eliminate other cause of dizziness.

However, as far as there are many nerves which transmit through the upper cervical spine, if there is a problem with this region of the body, there will be trouble for other parts of the body. This is where the connection between the upper cervical region and vertigo becomes important if there is even the slightest shift in the vertebrae, then vertigo occurs. Vertigo symptoms persist until the neck injury is attended to. Redmond Chiropractic care can be of help when vertigo happens. Redmond chiropractors carry out vertigo treatment by correcting the position of the injured cervical vertebrae and most especially the C1 and C2.

People seek for upper cervical chiropractic care treatments in which Redmond wa chiropractors provides, Meniere’s disease is associated with an anomalous amount of fluid in the inner ear which causes imbalance. When there is an imbalance of fluids in the ear, it causes dizziness which makes an individual feel like their head is continuously spinning. This condition can result in continuous ringing in the ear and hear loss. Episodes of vertigo can occur intermittently and can also be devastating, which can last for up to 30 minutes to an hour. An individual might even feel sleepy during those episodes, and it becomes hard to discharge their routine activities.

Disembarkment syndrome is a kind of vertigo that happens to an individual who is on an airplane or boat; you might feel dizzy after going on a plane trip or boat cruise; it clears away after some minutes or hours.

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the type of vertigo which occurs based on the neck position. The dizziness when triggered can last a few seconds to minutes. Benign Vertigo symptoms are often triggered by rolling over in bed, unexpected head motion or looking up, rising from sleep. This type of vertigo is associated with the inner ear, and the common cause of this is a sudden trauma. The ear contains fluids within the labyrinth of the inner ear which are calcium crystals known as otoliths (ear rocks). In the case of a BPPV condition, the otoliths are displaced from their regular position and migrate into the semicircular canals. Meanwhile, the semicircular canals are oriented at exactly ninety degrees to each other. The action of this fluid in the semicircular canals results in a faulty signal being sent to the head about the head movement even when the head is not in motion.
