What is included in the Vestibular System? It is made up of the ear canals as well as the particles and fluid contained within. When something in this system malfunctions, the brain loses ability to communicate with the rest of the body concerning where it is located in space. Treatment options are often limited for vertigo and other forms of dizziness.
Dr. Joe Breuwet is a specialist who cares for patients experiencing Vertigo in Honolulu, Hawaii using Upper Cervical Chiropractic as a treatment. This treatment focuses on tiny adjustments to the C1 and C2 vertebrae and has helped many patients experiencing Vertigo to attain relief. That is because the position of the C1 vertebrae can affect the ear tubes as well as the CN VIII nerve that is the main nerve connecting the Vestibular System to the brain.
Examination and adjustment of the upper neck have been clinically proven to help patients right from the initial treatments.4Page BreakReferences:
