Dizziness

Is unexpected and unexplainable dizziness affecting your everyday activities?

Do you remember looking up to the sky and you spinning around, then trying to run in a straight line?  Playing dizzy games as a child is fun.  But what if you had no control over this feeling, and it came on intensely, randomly and at the worst possible times?

Dizziness can be an unsettling and anxious experience.  Sometimes it may present as a light-headed, woozy or unbalanced feeling.  True vertigo though, is an experience where you feel you or the world is spinning, and this always involves the vestibular apparatus of the inner ear.

Chiropractic can help!

With post-graduate qualifications in Neurological Rehabilitation, we have chiropractors qualified to provide treatment programs for dizziness.

There are many causes of dizziness ranging from a harmless one-off moment of light headedness right through to a serious pathology, such as stroke.

An accurate diagnosis is critical with the dizzy patient.

Once the cause has been identified then appropriate treatment can begin.  As our approach is natural, this may include:

  • Spinal adjustments and mobilisation to improve sensory input to the brain
  • Balance exercises to improve adaptation
  • Eye exercises to improve neuro-stability
  • Epley’s Maneuver for BPPV
  • Breathing exercises to manage anxiety
