SUSPECT YOU MIGHT HAVE VERTIGO?

Vertigo can be a debilitating condition mainly characterised by intense dizziness and a spinning sensation. It can significantly impact your balance and overall quality of life. As such, recognising these symptoms is crucial for proper diagnosis and effective management. Some common symptoms include:

  • Intense dizziness or spinning sensation
  • Loss of balance or unsteadiness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abnormal eye movements or problem focusing the eyes
  • The feeling of pressure in the ear
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Hearing loss or changes in hearing
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Slurred speech
  • Weakness of the limbs

These symptoms may vary in severity and duration depending on the underlying causes and risk factors that may be causing you to feel dizzy.

WHAT IS VERTIGO?

Vertigo is a symptom where sufferers experience a spinning sensation, dizziness and disorientation. This means that it is not a medical condition in and of itself, but rather a symptom of another problem (in the same way a sneeze is a symptom of a problem, such as the flu). Contrary to popular belief, vertigo is not caused by heights. Instead, it is related to problems with the nervous system, brain or inner ear balance organs.

COMMON TRIGGERS OF VERTIGO AND DIZZINESS

Vertigo and dizziness can be caused by various factors and even physical triggers. Some of the conditions are usually associated with other symptoms, such as tinnitus, headaches, lightheadedness, a feeling of fullness in the ear, and even hearing loss. When it comes to physical triggers, they may include anything from a fall, whiplash injury, or a car accident to other insults to the neck or head. The damage to the nerves in the upper neck caused by these physical triggers can make individuals more susceptible to developing symptoms like vertigo.

What causes dizziness and vertigo
Here are some common triggers and causes:
  1. LABYRINTHITIS
  2. MENIERE’S DISEASE
    Meniere’s disease is an imbalance of the liquid in the inner ear, resulting in dizziness, a feeling of spinning, nausea, a feeling of fullness in the ear and hearing loss. It usually is more chronic (long-term) than Labyrinthitis and can be predominantly occurring on one side. The hearing loss can be more gradual over time. Chiropractic care can help with managing the symptoms of Meniere’s disease, with research showing the value of Upper Cervical Chiropractic.
  3. BPPV (BENIGN PAROXYSMAL POSITIONAL VERTIGO)
  4. OTHERS

VERTIGO RELIEF: HOME REMEDIES & COMMON CARE

HOME REMEDY: HOME EPLEY MANOEUVRE

The Home Epley Manoeuvre is a common medical procedure for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). It is a series of movements designed by John Epley to dislodge the crystals from the semicircular canals.

Though it was originally designed to be performed by a healthcare professional in Singapore, the home Epley Manoeuvre can easily be performed at your comfort to provide relief from your vertigo symptoms.

If you’re experiencing problems with your right ear, you can begin by sitting up on the bed. Angle your head 45 degrees to the right and quickly lie back. With your shoulders on your pillow, wait 30 seconds. Subsequently, turn your head 45 degrees towards the left from your neutral position, and wait for 30 seconds before sitting up on the left side.

If you experience discomfort in your left ear, repeat the previous steps in the reverse direction, beginning with your head angled 45 degrees to the left. If your symptoms persist, consider consulting a vertigo specialist in Singapore.

OTHER DIZZINESS AND VERTIGO CARE

CURRENT DIZZINESS AND VERTIGO CARE

Vertigo is commonly managed with medicines, such as antihistamines or anti-emetics, which can be helpful in some cases, such as if it is due to a bacterial infection. However, if the cause is rooted in the nerve system this will only help to temporarily relieve the symptoms.

Where the vertigo and dizziness is chronic (long term), the procedure must assess any underlying problems in the nerve system.

Additionally, if you experience concerning, accompanying symptoms such as hearing loss, persistent headaches, or unexplained weight loss, it is advisable to consult a medical professional for proper evaluation and therapy. A vertigo specialist in Singapore can advise on the appropriate therapy plan to help manage your symptoms.

PATIENT REVIEWS FOR OUR SPECIALISTS IN SINGAPORE

GET VERTIGO CARE FROM CHIROPRACTORS

Misalignments in the upper neck, referred to as Subluxations, can potentially influence the upper spinal cord and brain stem, leading to disruptions in the balance centres. This may cause the brain to not fully process information from the body, possibly causing a loss of coordination.

If the dizziness is worsened by the position of the head, this is particularly indicative of an Upper Cervical Subluxation. Chiropractic care specifically targets the upper cervical region. This is crucial as it’s the area that contains the balance centres, which can potentially address dizziness.

 

Different Chiropractic centres in Singapore may offer unique procedures, such as the NeuroPro method, which involves performing nerve tests. For those experiencing vertigo and dizziness, this technique may be a helpful approach. This removes interference at the spinal cord and brainstem, restoring normal balance. Chiropractic patients experience less dizziness and are able to return to normal activities, such as work and playing with their children.
