Those suffering with vertigo and dizziness want to know; Can vertigo be cured?
Vertigo is a symptom, not a disease. It is caused by a problem in the inner ear, the nerves, or the brain that affects balance. The underlying cause of vertigo can be cured in many cases, but knowing what is causing your vertigo is essential to getting proper treatment.
The most common cause of vertigo is benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). BPPV is caused by small crystals that break off from the inner ear and float into the semicircular canals. These crystals can cause the canals to send false signals to the brain about balance, resulting in vertigo.
The vestibular nerve relays information related to motion and position. Inflammation can damage the vestibular nerve and cause vertigo. Chiropractic adjustments can help to reduce inflammation and improve the function of the vestibular nerve.
A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that can be caused by a blow to the head or a sudden movement of the head and neck. It can cause a variety of symptoms, including headache, dizziness/vertigo, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and noise, difficulty concentrating, and memory problems. The spine is connected to the brain through the spinal cord. If the spine is misaligned, it can put pressure on the spinal cord and cause concussion symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments can help to improve the alignment of the spine and relieve pressure on the spinal cord.
