DIZZINESS & VERTIGO
DIZZINESS & VERTIGO
Dizziness or vertigo is the abnormal sensation of movement. It is often described as if you or the room are spinning.
It can be hard to differentiate true vertigo/dizziness from other issues such as a loss of balance, feeling lightheaded, or in extreme cases ‘blacking out’ with loss of memory. Brain fog, or ‘fuzziness’ as it’s often called within (ABC™) is the inability to think clearly, communicate easily, or remember well.
There often seems to be crossover and similarity in the presentations of dizziness/vertigo and brain fog/fuzziness.
There are many types of dizziness ranging from cervicogenic dizziness, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), Meniere’s disease, blood pressure related (hypotensive), and infection or viral related.
COMMON CAUSES OF DIZZINESS AT KIRSH CHIROPRACTIC:
There are many causes of dizziness and there can be multiple reasons at play for an individuals issues. The more common reasons are:
- Poor posture – relating to neck/cervical spine dysfunction
- Side effect of prescription medications
- Ear infections
- Low blood pressure
- Inner ear dysfunction
When serious neurological or pathological reasons for dizziness and or brain fog/fuzziness can be ruled out, the likely issue is poor posture. Specifically, cervicogenic dizziness, which means coming from the neck or cervical spine.
Poor alignment of the spine can lead to aberrant function of the nervous system which plays a key role in a persons perception of where they are in space, thus resulting in the feeling of dizziness.
TREAT THE SYMPTOMS or CORRECT THE CAUSE?
There are two ways people look to help dizziness/brain fog:
1. Treat the symptoms:
Medication is often a ‘quick fix’ method for helping dizziness/brain fog, along with many other therapies that solely focus reducing the symptoms. While this may help remove the immediate symptom, it is a short-term solution and does not correct the underlying cause of the problem, your spinal alignment.
The problem is likely to return.
Symptom treatment, without ever addressing the root cause of dizziness/brain fog, can result in an ongoing and increasing need for medication. As you age, symptoms can become more severe and ongoing dizziness/brain fog can decrease quality of life.
2. Correct the cause of the problem:
Imagine being able to identify the cause of your dizziness/brain fog and resolving that issue!
Treatment with ABC™, through real and immediate correction of the body structure results in improved spinal alignment and posture. Over time this process will both improve the symptoms and lead to long term resolution of the structural cause of dizziness/brain fog.
HOW ADVANCED BIO-STRUCTURAL CORRECTION™ HELPS DIZZINESS/BRAIN FOG:
Our chiropractic method, Advanced Bio-Structural Correction™ (ABC™) is a hands on therapy that corrects spinal alignment and posture.
ABC™ is a therapy that looks at the body as a whole and not just individual parts operating separately from each other. By acknowledging that the body is a single, whole functioning unit, we can get to the root of your body issues and truly correct them while preventing issues from developing in the future.
Correcting your structural alignment from top to bottom takes pressure off the muscles, ligaments, discs, and nerves in your back. Removing these pressures helps the body to heal naturally.
ABC™ consists broadly of manoeuvres such as spinal stretches, hands on adjustments of the spine, ribs, and lower extremities which result in consistent and predictable results including postural correction.
Correcting your spinal alignment with Advanced Bio- Structural Correction™ helps you get real and immediate relief from dizziness/brain fog, as well as preventing the problem from returning in the future.
In short, ABC™ is a holistic healthcare system aimed at not only improving symptoms but helping bodies to function and feel their best. By improving posture through this therapy, one will notice ease in breathing, clarity in the head, and often a sense balance in the body.
POSTURE AND NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION:
The nervous system is our communication pathway between our body and brain.
It helps to regulate and control every action in our body.
It is extremely important that our nervous system is working at its optimum if we want to function well and live a healthy life. As our structural system (mostly skull and spine) encloses and protects our nervous system, it can have a direct influence on how well our brain, spinal cord and its peripheral nerves are functioning.
If the alignment of the bones in our structural system, especially our spine start to lose their ideal shape or become dysfunctional it can impact the nervous system adversely.
By improving spinal alignment and posture, pressure and tension can come off your nervous system. In turn, this helps your body to function and feel its best while reducing the likelihood of encountering injuries and greater problems in the future.
At Kirsh Chiropractic our goal is to fix bodies and help prevent injuries from returning. Ultimately, we want to make your body work well so you can enjoy life uninhibited by pain. Once posture is corrected, it is recommended to keep it in good shape. This is best managed through a protective adjustment periodically, along with our advice around day to day living.
