Ways Our Chiropractor Can Help with Nausea & Dizziness
Dizziness can occur for a variety of reasons such as moving too quickly in a circle or looking down from tall heights and is typically temporary. However, dizziness, also known as vertigo, can be more persistent and may result from several conditions including trauma to the head and neck, nervous system issues, or inner ear problems. Some people experience dizziness so extreme that it can cause vomiting and sweating as well. If you find yourself with severe vertigo, our staff at Lifetime Health and Wellness can help.
A chiropractor can provide physical therapy or massage along with various tools to an injured area. When a chiropractor manipulates your body, your injuries may be able to heal and dizziness lessen. Furthermore, a chiropractor can manipulate joints to regain proper motion. Joints that do not move properly can send the wrong information to the brain to cause vertigo.
One specific technique that a chiropractor can use is known as the Epley maneuver, in which we will move your head into various positions. This can help vertigo if the cause is debris that has collected in the tubes in your ears that contain fluid that send signals to your brain about which position your body is in. Debris in those tubes can cause dizziness because the brain receives incorrect signals, and this maneuver can clear that debris to restore healthy signaling and reduce vertigo.
For people who struggle with dizziness and balance, a chiropractor can recommend exercises such as Tai Chi that help you focus on your body and balance. As part of a holistic approach, a chiropractor may examine your behaviors and diet to highlight factors such as alcohol, caffeine, or tobacco use that contribute to your dizziness.
Together, with the help of a chiropractor, you can reduce or even eliminate dizziness.
