Vertigo Symptoms

Vertigo, when it strikes “out of the blue” can mimic mild panic attacks. Unlike with severe anxiety, there’s no pill or breathing exercise to calm the patient and reduce discomfort. Though vertigo symptoms are rarely as severe as a full-blown panic attack, some can last far longer—several days, weeks, or even years.

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness
  • Double Vision
  • Feeling Like Everything is Spinning
  • Impaired, Sometimes Muffled Hearing
  • Loss of Balance
  • Nystagmus: Unusual Eyeball movements, Usually Horizontal Jerking or “Vibrating” Appearance
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Perspiration (Unexplained by Exertion or Environmental Factors)
  • Tinnitus: Ringing Or Rushing of Sounds in Ears

Some of these vertigo symptoms are limited to inner ear complications, but most occur anytime there’s a disruption in the body’s ability to seek equilibrium. Our patients describe vertigo as the feeling that you’re still, but the world is spinning or tilting around you. It’s the classic symptom and you wouldn’t believe how many doctors miss the connection between vertigo and the upper spine or neck area.

Vertigo’s symptoms aren’t limited to what our patients experience as a direct result of their neurological impairment. When we don’t have confidence in our ability to maintain our balance and sensory perception, it affects our ability to function as active, productive people. Anxieties about possible “episodes” can become as debilitating as vertigo itself, and let’s face it—when we’re feeling off, our loved ones and co-workers feel it, too.

Causes of Vertigo​

As we mentioned, inner ear issues are the best-known vertigo triggers. Infections, damage, head and neck trauma, and genetics can wreak havoc on specialized hairs and fluid-filled canals in our ears, throwing us off balance and making us feel queasy.

Other Causes of Vertigo Include:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): BPPV occurs when small calcium crystals in the inner ear become dislodged and move into the wrong part of the ear. This can cause brief episodes when the head is moved in certain positions.
  • Meniere’s Disease: This is a condition of the inner ear that can cause vertigo, hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ear), and a feeling of fullness in the ear. Ménière’s disease usually starts in one ear, but later may involve both. Smoking, infections, or a high-salt diet may worsen the disease. Symptoms include a spinning sensation (vertigo), hearing loss, ear ringing (tinnitus), and ear pressure. Vertigo may cause severe nausea and imbalance. Hearing loss may become permanent.
  • Vestibular Neuritis or Labyrinthitis: These are conditions that cause inflammation of the inner ear or the nerves connecting the inner ear to the brain. They can cause vertigo, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Migraine: Some people with migraine headaches can experience vertigo as a symptom.
  • Head Injury: A blow to the head can cause damage to the inner ear or the brain, which can result in vertigo.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as certain antibiotics, antihistamines, and blood pressure drugs, can cause vertigo as a side effect.
  • Anxiety or Panic Attacks: Psychological conditions such as anxiety or panic attacks can sometimes cause vertigo as a symptom.

Our skeletons also play a role in signaling where our bodies exist in space and time, and when mechanoreceptors in our joints are out of position, our proprioception—our nervous system’s ability to transmit and process balance-related information—goes out the window.

The cervical vertebrae and surrounding tissues are where most spine-related vertigo cases originate, and that’s why many people who come to us for neck pain relief report they’re also experiencing vertigo.

It’s not just anecdotal. Medical studies have confirmed a correlation between improved neck wellness and vertigo relief. That’s why chiropractors who specialize in cervical vertebrae meet a lot of clients who are desperately seeking vertigo treatment and hope for a return to their active, pain-free lives, and why patients from all over Colorado seek out Dr. Norris’s specialized Upper Cervical Corrective Care approach.

Medical Doctor’s were confused, her scans were clear, and the next option was experimental surgery. Luckily, Macy heard about NUCCA Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care and Dr. Norris Golberg at Koru Chiropractic in Louisville, Colorado.

Koru Chiropractic of Louisville Offers Vertigo Treatment and Relief.

When you and Dr. Norris decide that it’s time for hands-on chiropractic treatment in Louisville, his methods are non-invasive and effective. Most chiropractors don’t have specialized training, education, and clinical experience in upper cervical spine anatomy, and rarely use the techniques and instruments upper cervical spine specialists require to help their patients take control of their vertigo symptoms.

Dr. Norris sees patients in Louisville, CO, and from all over the area, including Erie, Longmont, Superior, Boulder, Lafayette, Niwot, Broomfield, and Denver. While chiropractic care can’t fix everything, Dr. Norris has had enormous success in treating back pain, neck pain, migraine headaches, whiplash, and more.

Our clients tell us they appreciate how well we listen to them. If you’re in pain, we ask questions, listen to your answers, and find the root cause of your health concerns. Through this customized approach, we are able to tailor our treatment
