Vertigo, Dizziness & Balance Problems

Vertigo can cause difficulty while driving, participating in activities, even getting out of bed. Many people with these conditions cannot perform simple tasks such as reading or standing.

Vertigo, or dizziness, affects millions of people around the world each year. In a majority of the cases, vertigo is nothing more than a temporary inconvenience. In some cases, vertigo is a debilitating condition. Day-to-day activities are kept to a minimum due to the severe dizziness. In many cases, the area of dysfunction in the nervous system is the cerebellum. The cerebellum is in the posterior aspect (back part) of the brain and brain stem and controls our coordinated movements.

  • There are specific neurological tests that we utilize to determine cerebellar function.
  • With x-rays and instrumentation we can check for subluxations at the top of your spine affecting the brain stem.

Treatment of the cerebellar dysfunction may include:

  • Unilateral (one-sided) Upper Cervical Specific Adjustments.
  • Extremities (arms and legs), lumbar (low back) and cervical (neck) spine can also be adjusted on one side only to fire muscle spindle cells (muscle receptors) and joint mechanoreceptors (joint receptors) into the same cerebellum and opposite cerebral cortex (brain).

Some of these procedures along with other protocols may be employed to restore the cerebellum to its normal function.
