Dizziness Chiropractor in Garden City, MI
Chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective method for managing dizziness. If you’re suffering from feeling woozy or unbalanced, a dizziness chiropractor can help you find relief.
Symptoms of Dizziness
Dizziness is an unsettling sensation characterized by faintness, lightheadedness, feeling unsteady or off-balance, or feeling as though you or your surroundings are spinning. This spinning sensation is sometimes referred to as vertigo. Dizziness might be accompanied by fainting, nausea, or vomiting.
Causes of Dizziness
Dizziness is a common symptom of numerous physical and psychological conditions. Treatment involves addressing the underlying cause.
Causes of dizziness include Meniere’s disease (an inner ear disorder), anemia, ear infection, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), anxiety, and heart disease. A sudden drop in blood pressure (often upon standing or sitting up), migraine, medication side effects, dehydration, motion sickness, and heat stroke also cause dizziness.
Benign Positional Vertigo
Benign positional vertigo (BPV) is the most common form of vertigo. Patients with a history of osteoporosis, diabetes, head trauma, or an inner ear disorder are at an increased risk of developing BPV. In some cases, the exact cause of dizziness is not determined.
Treatment for Dizziness
Treatment for dizziness involves addressing the underlying cause. Ear infections are treated with antibiotics. Acute dizziness caused by dehydration, exercise, or heat can be alleviated by replenishing lost fluids. Therapy, medication, and relaxation techniques ease vertigo associated with anxiety disorders. Fortunately, vertigo patients benefit from treatment with the Epley maneuver and additional chiropractic techniques.
A chiropractor examines each patient individually to determine the best treatment plan. The Epley maneuver is widely considered a safe and effective vertigo treatment. A chiropractor moves and tilts your head to release the calcium crystals blocking your ear canal.
To relieve dizziness, a chiropractor might also employ the Semont maneuver, the Foster maneuver, or a spinal adjustment. Dizziness often results from nervous system dysfunction. Chiropractic spinal manipulation restores proper alignment to improve nervous system function.
A chiropractor can also recommend specific exercises that help reduce dizziness.
Dizziness is a distressing sensation that impairs your quality of life, but there’s no need to suffer.
