Dizziness is a common but distressing experience for patients seeking chiropractic treatment.
You may be wondering, why would I come to see a chiropractor for dizziness or vertigo?
Great question! Spinal misalignment, especially in the upper neck, often causes cervicogenic dizziness. This is due to the close relationship between the structures and nerves of the cervical spine and the balance receptors in the brain. However, there are many other possible causes of dizziness and vertigo, some more serious than others. An accurate diagnosis is critical to determine whether chiropractic is the right choice for your care. In our initial examination, if we determine the cause of your dizziness to be more serious in nature, we will refer you to the appropriate healthcare providers for your issue.
Treating dizziness and vertigo:
At Cooper Chiropractic, we take a holistic approach to treating dizziness and vertigo. We focus on the entire neuromusculoskeletal system, rather than simply the injury site. This includes the spine as a whole, extremity joints (hip, knee, etc), muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the nervous system.
The first step in helping you manage your problem is to make an accurate diagnosis. We achieve this with a comprehensive clinical history and a thorough physical examination, which includes neurological, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal tests, and if needed, further diagnostic investigations such as X-Rays.
Once we have gathered all the information required to make an accurate diagnosis, we will explain our findings to you, then tailor a treatment plan specific to your condition and goals. Because our team is dedicated to helping you manage your pain and reach your goals, if at any stage we determine that you would benefit more from another provider, we will refer you to someone who is best suited to your particular condition.
Prevention and education:
To help you achieve the optimal benefits from chiropractic care, our team will prescribe specific rehabilitation exercises just for you, offer sound ergonomic advice for your work or home environment, and provide the necessary tools to prevent future injuries.
