Vertigo is frequently caused by an issue with the inner ear. There can be many reasons why people experience vertigo episodes, but the most common include:
- BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo) occurs when small calcium crystals become lodged in the inner ear. This can disturb normal signals that the inner ear sends to the brain about your body’s position and balance.
- Meniere’s disease is a disorder characterized by vertigo episodes, tinnitus, and hearing loss. It is caused by a buildup of excess fluid in the ear, which changes pressure and also affects normal signals to the brain about balance.
- Labyrinthitis is caused by an infection and causes inflammation around the nerves in the inner ear that help sense balance.
Treatment for vertigo can vary depending on what the cause is. The brain is also very adaptable, and can learn to cope with a degree of abnormal inner ear function. This doesn’t seem like a very logical solution, however. Why would you want your body to adapt to a function that is less than optimal, especially when it concerns your ability to balance?

I’ve Tried Everything—How Can I Find Vertigo Relief?
For many people looking for a solution to vertigo, the answer might lie in the upper cervical spine. This area of the spine, the uppermost vertebrae in the neck, are especially prone to injury. A misalignment in this area, even a slight one, can put enough pressure on the brainstem and spinal cord to obstruct the brain’s ability to communicate normally with the rest of the body. We are able to thoroughly examine your neck for any misalignments and make the necessary adjustments to restore your body’s communication system. Upper cervical chiropractic care has been used in hundreds of cases to provide natural, lasting relief from vertigo symptoms.To schedule a consultation call (808) 638-1313 or simply click the button below.
