Many Upper Cervical Chiropractic patients don't realize it right away. So they are surprised to learn from their visit to an Upper Cervical Chiropractor that their vertigo episodes are linked to misalignments in their upper cervical spine.
These bones can impact your sense of balance. The Upper Cervical bones, particularly the atlas (C1) and axis (C2), help maintain proper alignment and function of the vestibular system and your brainstem, which can influence your body's spatial orientation and balance. When misalignments occur in these bones, it can disrupt the signals sent to the brain, leading to a distorted perception of movement and resulting in vertigo.
Upper Cervical misalignments can stem from various causes, such as trauma from accidents or injuries, repetitive strain on the neck muscles, or even poor posture habits. In addition, the misaligned vertebrae can exert pressure on the surrounding nerves, muscles, tissues, and ligaments, which can interfere with the optimal function of the brainstem affecting the nervous system. As a result, individuals may experience dizziness, spinning sensations, difficulty maintaining balance, and a sense of disorientation. Addressing and correcting these upper cervical misalignments through gentle Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate the underlying cause of vertigo and restore balance, allowing you to regain control over your daily life without worrying about these episodes again.
If this is your first time visiting an Upper Cervical Chiropractor like Gucciardo Specific Chiropractic and Natural Health Center, your visit usually begins with a comprehensive examination. This will help assess your spinal alignment and posture and retrace your medical history to better understand your situation.
If a misalignment is confirmed, Dr. Gucciardo will recommend adjustments that match your needs. These adjustments are safe, gentle, precise, and non-invasive that can help restore the proper balance and alignment to the bones of your upper neck. The goal is to remove any interference or pressure on the nerves and blood vessels, allowing the brainstem to function optimally.
The duration of improvement can vary depending on your condition, making it crucial to consult as soon as possible for a personalized assessment. Some patients report relief after just one or a few adjustments. But even if you experience relief early on, following the proposed number of adjustments your Upper Cervical doctor recommends to ensure lasting relief from vertigo symptoms is crucial.
