Research has proven there is a link between Upper Cervical (top of the neck) injury and various forms of vertigo, suggesting that neck trauma is the root cause of various types of vertigo.
In the upper cervical region, there are two neck bones at the top, known as the C1 and C2 vertebrae, responsible for neck and head rotation and flexibility. These bones also protect your brain stem and ensure information rom the brain passes to the body. However, they’re very susceptible to varying degrees of injuries resulting from physical traumas, such as :
- car crashes
- ports injuries
Vertigo can manifest months or years after the initial neck or head injury.
How does an injury result in chronic vertigo?
Neck trauma affects the brainstem, a main controller of the nerve system, and invariably, the entire body; hence the link between the upper cervical region and vertigo! If left unaddressed, neck injuries can result in vertigo, or other nerve system related symptoms, including migraines, fatigue, giddiness, arm tingling or inner ear problems.
Specific Upper Cervical Chiropractic care addresses these traumas in the neck, restoring the normal motion. This starts a healing process in the body that allows the body to restore normal function (and with normal function comes reduction or an end to symptoms).
How does specific Upper Cervical Chiropractic care help chronic vertigo?
Upper cervical Chiropractic care is especially effective in helping the following types of vertigo:
1. Benign Positional Vertigo:often occurs when calcified particles clog the ear canal and disrupt the nervous system. Episodes of vertigo can occur If BPV isn’t addressed,
2. Meniere’s disease: characterized by excess fluids in the ear, ringing ears, and dizziness. Vertigo episodes can last for minutes and hours. Episodes make it impossible for people to handle basic tasks like driving, cooking or even working.

3. Disembarkment Syndrome is another common type of vertigo. Episodes often occur after boat rides and flights. During episodes, the sufferer feels their bodies are moving, swaying or bouncing. Sufferers are unable to work, drive and manage tasks.
