More than 42 percent of Americans experience dizziness or vertigo during their lifetimes. Many suffer in silence, assuming there is nothing that can be done for the disarming feeling of spinning or falling off balance.
However, in about 20-50 percent of cases dizziness is actually caused by a disorder that’s incredibly easy, and fast, to treat — once it’s diagnosed. If you currently struggle with dizziness, you owe it to yourself to explore this condition, as it’s actually one of the most common causes of vertigo there is.
Dr. Bastomski’s Comments:
As the article says, there are many causes of dizziness or vertigo but a fairly common one is the middle ear condition known as BPPV which frequently can be assisted with the Eply maneuver. Other common sources of dysfunction that lead to dizziness and / or vertigo include one’s spine – the neck in particular, the jaw joint and a mismatch of proper signaling from various neurologic areas including the feet, middle ear, visual centers and brainstem nuclei whose job is to properly integrate all the incoming neurologic data. These are items that a chiropractic neurologist can potentially assist with.
