Chiropractic and Vestibular/Dizzy Conditions

The vestibular system is a part of the inner ear and brain. It is involved in important functions such as keeping us balanced, stabilizing our vision during head and body movements, as well as maintaining our posture. With vestibular injury, illness or dysfunction, one can experience life altering symptoms of dizziness, imbalance, vertigo, nausea, vomiting, difficulty walking and performing daily activities. That is where vestibular rehabilitation is vital. Once identified, a variety of treatments can help rehab someone back to optimal health. Treatments include, but not limited to: education, gaze stabilization exercises, balance retraining, head maneuvers for BPPV, sensory integration, adaptation; habituation exercises and a tailored home exercise program.

Common disorders treated by Chiropractic are: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), labrynthitis, Meniere’s disease, vestibular migraine, fall risk, gait and balance disorders, persistent postural perceptual dizziness (PPPD).
