A person experiencing the sensation of dizziness may not be sure if it is actually vertigo or simply an equilibrium imbalance.
Vertigo is the sensation that the person is spinning or that the things around them are spinning when neither is actually moving.
Disequilibrium is the feeling of being off kilter. The person feels as if they are going to fall or they may feel as if the floor is tilting.
Both of these conditions can signal that an underlying issue is at work and the Chiropractors at AICA College Park are here to help!
Here are some disorders that may be causing vertigo:
This is a rare, noncancerous tumor that develops on the vestibular nerve, which leads from your inner ear to your brain.
Tinnitus and hearing loss may accompany this disorder.
If a person’s inner ear is swollen, this can occur.
It usually causes the person to have nausea, vomit often, vertigo, balance problems, and sudden hearing loss.
This has to do with too much fluid accumulation in the inner ear.
It can also cause tinnitus, hearing loss, and a feeling of fullness in the affected ear.
This migraine has dizziness as its main symptom instead of head pain.
It comes with sound and light sensitivity, nausea, and vomiting. It can last a few minutes to a few days.
One underlying cause of vertigo can be due to previous injuries or accidents to the head or neck.
A misalignment of the upper neck area may have occurred.
These types of misalignments can cause a disruption in the way the brain functions and communicates with the rest of the body, including the ears and the vestibular system.
At our College Park Chiropractic clinic, we are thoroughly trained in detecting these misalignments through special x-rays and examinations that will indicate whether or not a person’s vertigo is due to an issue in the upper neck.
Many of our patients have reported a decrease in symptoms after receiving our care.
