Vertigo Care at Dr. Robert Shire

Unsettling, potentially debilitating and downright scary, vertigo is dizziness that gives you the sense that you or your surroundings are spinning. You also can experience a sensation of loss of balance with vertigo.

What Are Some Common Symptoms?

Vertigo can range from being a minor nuisance to an indication of a serious underlying condition. Dizziness is not the only symptom associated with this condition. Here are some of the other symptoms of vertigo that often accompany dizziness:

  • Blurry vision or concentration challenges
  • Problems hearing, particularly in one ear
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Difficulty maintaining balance
  • Feeling fatigued or constantly tired
  • Double vision

What Causes Vertigo?

Here are some of the most common causes of vertigo:

  • Severe headaches such as migraines
  • Chronic earaches or damage to the inner ear
  • Meniere’s disease
  • A lack of blood flow to the brain
  • Auto accidents resulting in joint and ligament damage throughout the spine
  • Misalignments or subluxations of the vertebrae in the neck

As you can see, vertigo typically starts with issues that involve the head, inner ear and spine. These areas play a vital role in how the body orients itself and maintains balance. Vertigo is often the result of a disruption in the signals transmitted from the nerves of the spine to the brain. When signals that would usually keep us balanced become distorted and scrambled symptoms of dizziness can arise.

How Chiropractic Can Help

Chiropractic treatment is a gentle and safe approach to address many of the causes of vertigo. Before Dr. Shire provides chiropractic care, he will perform a comprehensive evaluation that will determine the precise cause of your vertigo and the most appropriate treatment methods.
