You may experience it when you have problems within your brain, inner ear, or sensory nerve pathways.

Dizziness/vertigo can occur at any age, but it is more common among people over the age of 65.

Dizziness/vertigo may be temporary or long-term. For example, it may occur as a symptom of an ear infection or during pregnancy. Vertigo may also occur in people who have Meniere’s disease.

The feeling that vertigo brings can be disorienting and very unsettling. It is one thing to have a queasy feeling when you’re jetting off in an airplane and another thing to feel disoriented and dizzy when you are getting out of bed or walking between rooms.

If you experience vertigo regularly, you must consider finding a healthcare professional that focuses on correcting the upper cervical spine, aka the top of the neck. It could be the key to relieving your secondary conditions and regaining total control over your life.

In this article, we will consider how Foundational Correction using upper cervical chiropractic care can help with dizziness/vertigo, but first, let’s look at the basics.

What is vertigo?

Vertigo is simply a sensation of dizziness — one that feels like you are spinning. Someone suffering from vertigo usually feels like the surrounding environment or room is spinning in circles.

A person may experience vertigo when they look down from a height. However, this term is mainly used to describe consistent or temporary spells of dizziness caused by brain or inner ear problems.

Vertigo is not an illness. Instead, it is a symptom of an underlying condition. Many conditions can cause vertigo.
