Dizziness & Vertigo

 

Dizziness and vertigo are symptoms of disorientation which can be a sensation that the person or their environment is spinning. Sometimes these symptoms can be related to neck pain or dysfunction.

 

Chiropractors treat dizziness and vertigo using a package of care that may include manual therapies and onward referral where indicated.

 

Often dizziness and vertigo is accompanied by neck pain, with the joints and muscles of the neck actually giving rise to these conditions. If you suffer from neck pain as well as dizziness and vertigo, you may find the two are related and be treated for both to relieve your pain.
