Are you Dealing with Vertigo?
Are you dealing with dizziness or vertigo in Portland? It can be difficult to find relief through conventional health care for this complicated condition. It is surprising that there is a dearth of resources available for the treatment of vertigo (dizziness) and even fewer therapies available for relief. Our chiropractic clinic in Portland is committed to providing that information to you.
A large number of patients who say they experience vertigo are usually experiencing one of two different phenomena. On one hand, individuals report feeling dizzy when they are feeling faint and other report feeling as if the room around them is moving in a circular fashion. Vertigo is used to describe the latter. Delineating both types of phenomena is important since each condition requires a different type of therapy.
Your chiropractor at Hazelwood Healthcare has the experience necessary to diagnose what type of phenomenon you are dealing with and provide effective care.
Vertigo in Portland
Patients that visit our office can have a number of different reasons for experiencing vertigo, though there are some causes that are more typical. These are a few of the reasons the patients we treat have experienced vertigo:
- Persistent headaches and migraines
- Chronic ear infections or ear trauma
- Poor cerebral blood circulation
- Auto injuries
- Misalignments throughout the spine
The aforementioned causes of vertigo may appear to be all over the place, however, they all have a common thread. Every affected area in each of these cases is a critical component in the body’s balance framework. When the body is out of balance, the muscle tissues throughout must work harder to compensate. While the body is resilient, eventually the imbalances begin to take a toll on health. In the case of vertigo, the body’s imbalances have begun to impede the nervous system from properly communicating with the brain to achieve balance. By realigning your spine with the help of a chiropractor, it is possible to restore the proper function of the nervous system and find relief from vertigo.
