Your Neck and Your Vertigo Symptoms

Your spine is designed to provide protection for the brainstem and spinal cord.  The brainstem is a critical pathway over which information travels to and from the brain concerning balance and body position.  In the area of the brainstem, there are two vertebrae – the atlas (C1) and the axis (C2).  Any malposition of these vertebrae can affect how the brainstem relays these signals.  This can be the underlying cause of vertigo symptoms, and a precise upper cervical chiropractic adjustment can restore both normal spinal alignment and normal function.

In a research study done on 60 patients, upper cervical chiropractic care was able to provide complete relief to 48 and a reduction in symptoms for the remaining 12.  This success rate was accomplished using gentle and specific corrections made to atlas misalignments, without the need for any medications or more invasive treatments.
