Dizziness is not a disease, it is an indication that there is something wrong somewhere else in your body. The dizzy spells are your body’s warning that something is interfering with the proper function of the body’s organs, nerves, glands, or muscles. Chiropractors have long suspected a relationship between upper neck spinal bone misalignments and vertigo.
All of the functions of the body are under control of the nervous system. The nervous system originates in the brain where nerve energy is transmitted down through the spinal cord inside our spine and branches out between the vertebrae as spinal nerves. Occasionally, something may cause the spine to twist or curve. This creates a misalignment of the spinal bones which can put pressure on the nerves, interfering with the transmission of nerve energy.
Chiropractors, after ruling out other causes, such as caffeine and aspirin sensitivity, can diagnose the spinal misalignment. Through gentle manipulation, chiropractic can relieve the pressure on the spinal nerves, allowing the body to heal itself.
