Dizziness and Chiropractic

Dizziness (or vertigo) is a very common condition that causes people to seek Chiropractic care. In the medical setting dizziness is one of the top three complaints. Probably the most common cause of dizziness treated by Chiropractors is whiplash. A higher incidence of dizziness is also seen in the elderly.
Dizziness is one of the most common complaints after a whiplash. One of the proposed theories is that the whiplash injures the joints of the neck which are responsible for proprioception.
Dizziness is also reported in up to half of elderly people. Some of the common causes of dizziness in the elderly included the fear of falling and age related changes to the inner ear. Disuse or lack of enough exercise is also associated with dizziness in some people. Medications and vision problems are also possible causes of dizziness.
