The fact is that just about everyone experiences dizziness at one time or another. When were kids, we do it on purpose, spinning in a circle or getting on the merry-go-round and having someone else spin us. As a grown up, however, dizziness can be concerning. How can you tell an isolated incident from something you need to be more concerned about? Here are a few things to watch out for.

Concerns About Dizziness

If you have experienced a recent head injury, dizziness is a good sign that you suffered a concussion. It is also likely that you have suffered a misalignment of the upper cervical spine. Such a subluxation can affect blood flow to the brain, place pressure on the brainstem, or interfere with the vestibulocochlear nerve. Any of these factors can result in spinning.

If you get migraines regularly, it is likely that the two are connected. In fact, about 40% of migraines also present with spinning either before, during, or following the attack. Migraines that occur along with vertigo may have a similar underlying cause noted above. You may be able to remember a head or neck injury, even one that occurred a while ago, that started the migraines and dizziness.

If you are having speech problems, vision problems, numbness, weakness, and other symptoms of stroke along with the dizziness, it is time to call for an ambulance. When it comes to stroke, the speed of response is vital to limit permanent damage.

Fixing the Underlying Cause of Dizziness

If your dizziness is related to an injury or migraines, upper cervical chiropractic is a great drug-free way to seek assistance. The focus of upper cervical care is on correcting C1 and C2 subluxations that affect brainstem function, blood flow, and nerve function. When the misalignment is corrected, many patients see immediate benefits and fewer, less severe dizziness problems.
