Vertigo is often controlled by means of various prescription drugs. These medications may cause unwanted side effects. If nothing else, a patient may simply not want to have to take pills for the rest of his or her life. Is there a natural way to get help for that spinning feeling of vertigo? Evidencing is mounting that there is a better way.
Case Studies Involving Upper Cervical Care for Vertigo Patients
Today we’re going to look at two studies that involved a total of 199 patients. While many of these patients suffered from Meniere’s disease (a rare vestibular disease), the primary symptom of Meniere’s is vertigo. Consider the results of these studies.
In a study involving 139 patients with Meniere’s, the average vertigo intensity felt by the patients at the start of the study was 8.5 out of 10. After just 6 weeks, patients were reporting symptoms with an average intensity of just 3, and that continued to drop to 1.4 over the course of 2 years of care.

In another study that involved 60 vertigo patients, 48 patients were vertigo free by the end of 6 months. The other 12 saw significant improvement in symptoms. Some patients received relieve in as little as one month of care.
The Neck and Vertigo
The other thing that tied together these nearly 200 patients besides the vertigo was that nearly all of them had suffered some kind of head or neck trauma that resulted in an upper cervical subluxation. When upper cervical chiropractic was used to correct the misalignments, benefits were received.
This makes it clear that there is a connection between proper neck alignment and the functioning of the vestibular system. If you are suffering from vertigo, especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, come in for a consultation to learn what upper cervical chiropractic can do for you.
