Vertigo is a feeling of dizziness. A room spinning type of dizziness is often a problem within the inner ear such as an infection or Meniere’s disease. Treatment may include medication, physical therapy, or chiropractic adjustments.
But patients often describe other symptoms when explaining vertigo…
- A “fuzzy head” or tingly feeling
- A feeling of detachment from their surroundings
- Disorientation or difficulty concentrating
These symptoms do not fit the textbook definition of vertigo, but can be just as debilitating and uncomfortable. The cause is often due to a misalignment in the bones and tightness in the muscles of the upper part of the neck, usually at the C1-C2 level.
This type of vertigo is very common in individuals who spend long hours using a computer, sleep on their stomach, or have experienced trauma such as a vehicle accident, fall or sports injury.
