Escondido Chiropractor Offers Affordable Healthcare For Vertigo Sufferers
Vertigo is a form of severe dizziness, in which anyone who suffers from it can experience the feeling of immense falling, nausea, vomiting and more. Vertigo is often a very common symptom that presents itself in chiropractic patients, especially after major head and neck trauma.
Luckily, depending on the severity of the symptoms associated with it, vertigo can is a treatable condition. The treatment used to help alleviate the symptoms is directly dependent on the cause. In some extreme cases patients are referred to a neurologist for further assessments. But the good news is that the most common causes respond well to conservative non invasive care administered by a doctor of chiropractic.
One of the most common causes of vertigo and dizziness is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV, also called Benign Vertigo or Positional Vertigo. Usually about 20 percent of all cases of dizziness are due to BPPV and about 50 percent of all dizziness in older patients is due to BPPV. BPPV is an inner ear condition that causes brief, severe episodes of vertigo feeling like the room is spinning or that the sufferer is falling from a great height. Children often do not suffer from vertigo, and so it has been found that the older you are, the more likely it is that your dizziness is due to BPPV. In older people, the most common cause is degeneration of the vestibular system of the inner ear and BPPV becomes much more common with advancing age.
