What parts of the body are involved in a vertigo episode? The vestibular system is responsible for maintaining balance and telling the body where it is in relation to its surroundings. The is just one part of the much large central nervous system which is responsible for all of the internal communication in the body as well as interpreting outside stimuli and other vital processes.
Natural Vertigo Treatment
People want natural solutions to their health concerns. In fact, one doctor has developed a means of treating vertigo that involves performing a somersault. This is supposed to reset the ear fluid that is a vital part of the vestibular system.
Another natural approach is the use of upper cervical chiropractic. This method really works because a misaligned atlas bone (the top vertebra in the neck) can easily cause vertigo. A misaligned atlas leads to ear dysfunction and particularly can cause issues for the Eustachian tubes.
In fact, one study revealed that out of 60 vertigo patients, 48 experienced no more vertigo after upper cervical chiropractic care. The other 12 in the study also benefitted by having fewer and less severe episodes of vertigo.
