● Lightheadedness: Feeling “not right in the head”.● Presyncope: Feeling faint.● Disequilibrium: Feeling off balance, pulled to one side, or as though you could fall down easily.● Vertigo: Feeling as though the world is spinning around you, whether in short acute attacks, or as a continual low level feeling.
Many experts agree that manual manipulation, the type of treatment provided by a Chiropractor, is the most effective treatment for disturbances of equilibrium. Because dizziness is a whole-system symptom (not just caused by the inner-ear as many people believe), a patient can find a great deal of success in treating this symptom with chiropractic care.
Once a chiropractor has had a chance to determine the type of dizziness you are feeling, you may be referred out for x-rays or other tests for an accurate assessment of cause. Because dizziness can be a symptom of a more serious underlying cause, we want to rule out any potential major concerns, such as stroke, tumors or a neurological disease. Once those tests are completed, we’ll start a course of treatment targeted to reduce your symptoms.
