Vertigo Treatment in Charlotte

woman feeling dizzyVertigo can be a debilitating condition characterized by the sensation of dizziness, where individuals feel either they or their surroundings are spinning. This condition can significantly impact daily activities and overall quality of life. Patients often describe it as a persistent unsteadiness, sometimes accompanied by nausea and fatigue.

Dr. Dunn frequently addresses this type of dizziness in his practice, providing insights into its causes and chiropractic treatment options.

More Than Dizziness

Vertigo is more than just occasional dizziness. Unlike the transient dizziness one might experience from standing up too quickly, this sensation persists and can be triggered by specific movements or positions. According to Dr. Dunn, vertigo is typically a more constant spinning sensation that doesn’t dissipate quickly like ordinary dizziness.

The Role of the Spine

Misalignments in the spine, particularly in the upper cervical region (the top two or three vertebrae), are commonly implicated in vertigo. Subluxations, or misalignments, in these areas can disrupt the communication between the brain and the body, contributing to symptoms. Though less common, issues in the lower back can also cause vertigo due to the body’s compensatory mechanisms.

How Gentle Chiropractic Care Helps

Chiropractic care, especially techniques like the Activator Method®, can be effective in treating vertigo. Dr. Dunn has extensive experience with this gentle, precise technique, which involves using a small instrument to adjust the spine without the traditional twisting or cracking.

This method reduces the fear factor for patients, particularly when dealing with sensitive areas like the upper cervical spine. Dr. Dunn aims to restore proper alignment and improve overall bodily function through careful adjustments.

Real-Life Success Stories

Dr. Dunn is honored to help so many patients with various health conditions, including vertigo. One notable case involved a handyman whose vertigo was so severe he couldn’t work or even drive. After a few adjustments, he returned to his normal activities, including his job and playing with his children.
