Vertigo, Dizziness, Dizzy, Vertigo Relief, Vertigo Treatment, Vertigo DoctorVertigo is a fairly common vestibular condition that makes the room seem like it is spinning around a person. Let’s take a look at a few things about the condition that you may not know, including a natural treatment.

#1 It Can Be the Result of Reduced Blood Flow to the Brain

When the brain is not getting the proper amount of oxygen due to decreased blood flow, vertigo is one common symptom.

#2 Ear Infections Can Cause Vertigo

If you have an ear infection, you may not need additional attention to deal with vertigo. If the condition persists after the infection has cleared up, it may be a symptom of another health condition.

#3 The Position of the Head Can Cause Vertigo

In fact, positional vertigo is the most common form this condition. A person may wake up with the room spinning after sitting up too quickly. But it can also happen while awake.

#4 It Can Cause a Person to Fall Down

If an attack is severe enough and strikes suddenly, a person may actually lose balance and fall. This is referred to as a drop attack.

#5 It May Be Caused by an Upper Cervical Misalignment

Interestingly, an upper cervical misalignment can create the blood flow problems that are a common cause of vertigo. If the C1 vertebra is misaligned, it can restrict blood flow to the brain and even put pressure on the brain stem.
