Can Singapore Chiropractic Help Vertigo?

Can Chiropractic Help Vertigo?

As a child you probably enjoyed spinning around, making yourself dizzy and falling to the ground enjoying the sensation. However, for people who suffer from vertigo, this feeling of dizziness lasts for a much longer time. Vertigo isn’t a game or a joking matter, it strikes when  you are either standing still or in motion. Imagine feeling dizzy and disoriented while you’re driving, giving a speech or playing your favourite sport. This feeling of dizziness may also surface alongside nausea and intense sweating!

Contrary to common misconceptions, vertigo is not a disease; rather, it is a symptom of an underlying problem in the body. Vertigo is often the aftermath of:

  • Head and neck trauma.
  • Nervous system disorders, often due to disturbance in the pathways of the central nervous system (CNS)
  • Inner ear problems
  • Neurological disease such as a brain tumour or a stroke
  • Problems in the spinal joints and/or ligament
  • Misalignment in the C1 and C2 bones in the neck, known as Subluxation

Chiropractic Care is a way to Help Manage Vertigo

You’re probably tired of the symptoms of vertigo, and have consulted with every type of medical Doctor under the sun to resolve the sensation. You’ve tried medication, manoeuvres, coping tactics but it still persists. Don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Over the years, researchers have been exploring various treatment options for vertigo. So far, Chiropractic care has proved to be the most effective alternative options for various types of vertigo. In fact, one study revealed that vertigo patients experienced significant improvements in balance and neck pain after they received chiropractic care. Furthermore, the patients in the study felt significantly less dizzy and less disoriented after they’d received chiropractic care.

How Does Chiropractic Help Vertigo?

  1. Chiropractic Adjustments

Depending on the symptoms of vertigo, the Upper Cervical Chiropractor is likely to deliver an adjustment. The goal is to address the Upper Cervical spine, where you are most likely to have an injury and neurological dysfunction.

If there is an injury, it’s important to assess your Upper Cervical spine by an Upper Cervical Chiropractor to allow the healing process in the body. Specific Chiropractic care is a holistic approach to solving your vertigo problems. To learn more about this option, read this post titled, Why You Feel Better After A Chiropractic Adjustment.


  1. The Epley Maneuver 

This vertigo treatment option is often employed when vertigo has been caused by problems in the inner ear. This technique involves changing the position of misplaced bone constituent parts (also known as otoconia). You can learn this procedure from an ENT, Physical Therapist or other Medical doctor that specialises in vertigo.

  1. Specific Exercises

If the vertigo is a symptom of ear problems, the Upper Cervical Chiropractor might recommend particular exercises. The physical exercises are designed to set off a healing process in the inner ear.

After an initial assessment, your Upper Cervical Chiropractor will decide the best course of action for you in managing the condition causing your vertigo.

  1. Lifestyle Adjustments

Sometimes, specific Chiropractors recommend lifestyle changes and dietary adjustments. This is especially the case if the patient’s lifestyle choices seem to be triggering episodes of vertigo. Below are some of the lifestyle changes your specific chiropractor might suggest:

  • Get enough sleep
  • Eat healthy foods (e.g. nuts, fruits, vegetables)
  • Say no to processed foods, fatty foods, and pre-packaged foods)
  • Avoid stressful situations
  1. Meditation

This option is often recommended alongside relaxation and breathing exercises. Upper cervical Chiropractors sometimes recommend these techniques because they can significantly reduce symptoms of vertigo.
