Dizziness

What is Dizziness

Dizziness is a condition where, in a lot of cases, the symptoms are worse than the underlying cause, this can become very draining for the sufferer. It may feel like the head is spinning or the room is spinning and may worsen with movement of the head or movements such as getting in or out of bed. The symptoms may vary from severe dizziness to mild imbalance and may be associated with headaches or neck pain.

Depending on the cause, the dizziness can occasionally come in conjunction with nausea, tinnitus (ringing in the ears) or hearing problems. There are different anatomical structures relating to balance and each one has the potential to create the feelings of dizziness, vertigo, pre-syncope, imbalance or just feeling faint. Issues with the inner ear can cause dizziness when the balance mechanisms are not functioning properly (e.g. BPPV, Ménière’s disease, labyrinthitis).

The patient may also be experiencing hypotension (low blood pressure), a central nervous system disorder or migraine headaches. This all sounds very scary but chiropractors at Chelsea & Fulham Chiropractic Clinic are been trained in recognising the situations in which the patient may need onward referral to another trained medical specialist.

However the good news is that in many cases, the cause of dizziness is coming from the joints in the neck (cervicogenic vertigo) that can be helped significantly with chiropractic care. The mechanisms behind this are related to normalising the biomechanical function of the vertebra that leads to normal neurological input into the nervous system and reduced muscle spasm.
