Dizziness is something that affects most people at some point. If that concept isn’t vague enough, people also use dizziness to envelop several different conditions. Let’s take a look at four types of dizziness that a person may experience, and then we will consider a potential treatment option that is natural and drug-free.
- Lightheadedness – This is the sensation that one is going to faint. While it may or may not actually happen, the sensation alone can prove disorienting. This particular type of dizziness is often associated with low blood pressure and may result from something as simple as standing up too quickly.
- Vertigo – This is feeling that a person is moving or things are spinning when no actual movement is taking place. Usually the underlying issue is either a problem with the inner ear or with the vestibulocochlear nerve that transmits information to the brain about the body’s location in space.
- Anxiety – While technically not an actual form of dizziness, some people describe the feelings of fear and anxiety as vertigo (for example, when a person looks down from a height and becomes immediately uncomfortable).
- Disequilibrium – This is basically the feeling of being unbalanced. It can be difficult to walk and can easily result in falls.

Natural Dizziness Relief in Honolulu, Hawaii
At Upper Cervical Hawaii, we use the NUCCA technique to detect and correct C1 and C2 misalignments. How can that affect dizziness? When the upper cervical spine is misaligned, it can wreak havoc on the vestibular system which controls balance and determines where a person is in relation to his or her surroundings.
As a result, correcting the misalignment may correct the dizziness. If you are experiencing dizziness, regardless of the type, why not see what NUCCA can do for you? An examination can determine if a misalignment is the likely underlying cause.
