The word “dizzy” is used to describe such sensations as feeling faint, lightheaded, unsteady, or ringing in the ears. The sense that one’s surroundings are spinning while they are standing still is called vertigo. Keeping your sense of balance requires your brain processing a variety of information from your eyes, nervous system, joints, and inner ears. If messages from these various locations are contradictory, or if the sensory or nervous systems are not functioning properly, this will cause dizziness and a loss of balance. Common causes of such message disruption include bacterial or viral infections affecting the inner ear; subluxation (irritation of the nervous tissue of the spinal cord, spinal nerves, brain, or ear); high or low blood pressure affecting blood flow to the brain; many medications; motion sickness; and stress. Rarely does dizziness or vertigo signal a serious or life-threatening problem. Dizziness is one of the most common reasons people visit doctors. Traditional medicine commonly fails to determine the underlying cause of dizziness and merely treats the symptom with anti-vertigo medication.

Chiropractic for Vertigo & Dizziness

Chiropractic aims to remove irritation to the nervous system and thus re-establish proper communication between the body and the brain. Subluxation, particularly in the neck, has been theorized to interfere with both nerve and blood flow to the spinal cord and inner ear. It is well known that vertigo can stem from dysfunction in the spinal column and research has shown that the majority of vertigo sufferers have spinal dysfunction (subluxation- nerve irritation/altered range of motion) in the neck. One study found that 60% of patients suffering with vertigo who received chiropractic care in combination with conservative medical treatment enjoyed a complete remission and an additional 20 percent had consistent improvement. Another study of 67 patients with vertigo found “a highly significant improvement of pathological vestibulospinal reactions was seen after chiropractic”. The chiropractor is concerned on finding and correcting the cause of vertigo, not just relieving the symptom.

"Great experience! Our whole family goes and we have referred other family members. Dr. Wade is awesome, he listens and wants what is best for his clients."

"I started adjustments for neck, back, and tailbone pain and at the end of the 10 weeks the pain was completely gone. Dr. Wade is kind, funny, and very good at what he does. He brings positive energy into the office every single day and is in a good mood 100% of the time. During each session, he gave me tips on faster healing and lifestyle changes I could make to help in the future."

"I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for about year when a respected yoga instructor recommended Dr. D. I attended a Monday night seminar to check the place out and promptly overcame my skepticism. Dr. DeFrancesco is knowledgeable, caring and professional with an office staff that supports his philosophy. This is a state of the art facility providing first class health care. Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."

"I would highly recommend this office for any chiropractic needs. The staff are wonderful (quick responses, friendly, and accommodating) and I have been seeing Dr. Wade for about 4-5 months now and I have received great care. Dr. Wade takes the time to answer questions, explain what's going on with your body and work through plans to help you feel better. I have had wonderful results since coming to this practice! Definitely deserving of the 5 stars!!!!"
