If you suffer from Vertigo, you know it can complicate your entire life. You need to find a way to get through the day while it seems your world is spinning, and most of the time you need to do that without letting people around you know about your internal battles.
Hopefully, if you experience it, it will only last for a few minutes, and it will only be a one time occurrence. But there are many more people who suffer from this condition on numerous occasions. The truth is that whether it only happens once due to an accident or injury, or it happens more frequently, it happens most commonly because of a dysfunction in the Vestibular system which helps us to keep our balance by recognizing spatial orientation, meaning how we are in orientation with our environment.
Now, there are various conditions that may lead to vertigo, and we’ll explore those below.
Vertigo Inducing Conditions
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – This is the result of sudden movement of the head and neck, such as in the case of car accidents or sports related injuries. It may also occur simply by standing up too fast.
Meniere’s Disease – This effects the inner ear and may lead to hearing loss, build up of pressure in one of your ears, or Tinnitus, People in their 40’s or 50’s are most susceptible to get it; though, a person of any age may experience it.
Vestibular Neuronitis – When the Vestibular Nerve in your inner ear becomes inflamed, your nerves in this region don’t send the right signal to the brain. That means the brain will think the body is moving when it’s not. This condition, which may be triggered by a common cold or flu, can also lead to hearing loss and Tinnitus.
Labrynthitis – When an irritation of your inner ear causes swelling that leads to hearing loss, this may be the result. A virus or bacteria due to a respiratory infection, cold, flu allergies, or many other conditions may trigger this.
Suffering from Vertigo no More
Though, it’s easy for people who have never experienced Vertigo to think they will never experience it, anyone at any age may suffer from this debilitating condition. But some people may experience an accident that leads to this becoming a chronic condition.
Well, the good news is that there is no more reason to suffer, as many of the above conditions are most likely due to an upper cervical injury. Those people who do suffer from this condition on a more regular basis would be wise not to continue suffering anymore but to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They can examine your upper cervical spine to see if any misalignments in your upper neck vertebrae may be the underlying cause of your bouts of Vertigo.
