Vertigo is one of the most common conditions experienced by those 40 and over. In fact, about 40% of people who live past the age of 40 will experience the condition at one time or another. However, since it is considered a benign condition, most doctors will just provide medication in an attempt to keep it under control. In most cases, a person will never even know why he or she is experiencing the effects. The only times emergency care is recommended is if the condition accompanies other signs of stroke, a person is also experiencing a high fever, or if someone becomes dehydrated after vertigo causes vomiting.
So if you experience it without fever or vomiting, and you are not experiencing a stroke, does that mean you just have to live with it?

Why You Should Get Treated
Most people do not even know what causes a bout to come on suddenly. In the case of BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)—the most common form—attacks are brought on by the movement of or position of the head. As you can imagine, this could quickly become a very dangerous condition if it occurs while one is driving or while working on a tall ladder.
When it happens frequently it can also keep a person from carrying out normal daily activities. Some may be afraid to tackle certain challenges (such as driving) out of fear of having an attack at a dangerous time. If you are ready to try a natural method of eliminating vertigo, I’d like to introduce you to upper cervical chiropractic care.
