Vertigo in Arroyo Grande

Before we get into talking about the causes of vertigo, let’s go over some of the most common symptoms to help you determine if this is what you are dealing with. Two different kinds of dizziness are often assumed to be Vertigo. Sometimes people say that they feel dizzy when they actually mean that they feel like they are going to pass out or faint.

Others say they feel dizzy when they perceive objects around them spinning and moving. Vertigo is a medical term that is used to describe the second situation. It is important to differentiate between the two sensations because each has a different set of causes and appropriate treatments.

Vertigo can range from a small nuisance to an indication of a severe underlying condition. Contrary to popular belief, dizziness is not the only symptom associated with this disorder. Some of the symptoms of vertigo that commonly accompany dizziness are:

  • Blurry vision or difficulty focusing
  • Problems hearing, especially in one ear
  • Ringing ears
  • Trouble maintaining balance
  • Feeling fatigued or tired all the time
  • Double vision

Causes of Vertigo

As we already mentioned, there are variety of different causes for vertigo. At times it can be caused by a severe underlying issue, therefore, it is of vital importance to be examined by a medical professional if you are experiencing symptoms. The following is a list of some of the most common causes of vertigo:

  • Severe headaches such as migraines or tension headaches
  • Chronic ear aches or damage to the inner ear
  • A lack of blood flow to the brain
  • Car accidents resulting in damage to the joints and ligaments throughout the spine
  • Misalignments or subluxations of the vertebrae in the neck

As you can see, vertigo commonly starts with issues involving the head, inner ear, and spine. These areas play an important role in how the body orients itself and maintains balance. Vertigo commonly results from a disruption in the signals sent from the nerves of the spine to the brain. When signals that would normally keep us balanced become distorted and scrambled symptoms of dizziness can occur.

I am back to work with little or no pain and can sit and sleep comfortably. All with no medication!

Although I had always believed in chiropractic and tried it before, the relief I found then was more short-term because I had never really learned about my body. Now I understand more about my body , and I have found long-term relief. I have actually slept a full night without taking medication and I have stayed out of the hospital!
