The Vertigo-Neck Connection
Have you recently suffered from a head or neck trauma? Do you suffer from headaches or vertigo? The two may be related. That’s according to a case study by the Blair upper cervical chiropractic group using an Upright MRI.
A Case Study on Vertigo
A 54-year-old female patient sought the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. She complained of migraines that occurred one or two times a week, chronic neck pain, and vertigo. Those symptoms began ten years earlier after she she was injured in a motor vehicle accident. She received three adjustments from her upper cervical Chiropractor, but her symptoms reappeared ten years later. She began receiving care from her upper cervical chiropractor. Her episodes of neck pain, migraine and vertigo disappeared after only the first adjustment.
What the MRI Reveals about Vertigo
According to research done by Dr. Raymond Damadian, inventor of the MRI, a misalignment in the upper cervical vertebrae can leads to a miscommunication between the brain in the body. That miscommunication can happen because of incorrect flow of cerebrospinal fluid to, from, and through the brain. That obstruction due to a misalignment in the upper neck vertebraecan lead to intracranial pressure, but it can be corrected by an upper cervical Chiropractor. Realigning those two bones allows for the normalization of the flow of that fluid and reduction of those symptoms.
Those who suffer from vertigo should seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, so they can examine their upper neck vertebrae for any misalignments that may be hindering that communication system. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to place enough pressure on the brainstem to cause various health problems such as Vertigo and more.
