Acupuncture and Dizziness

Acupuncture has established treatments for dizziness. The point locations for acupuncture treatment correspond with those for problems of the inner ear and ringing of the ears. Acupuncture treatment usually involves the insertion of 20-40 needles. The needles are very fine and thin and 5 can fit into the core of a hypodermic needle. The needles are used once then disposed of. Most of the points used in acupuncture for vertigo are near the front of the ear, the back, hand and ankle. Most areas of acupuncture needle insertion are not especially tender and most people have little problem with tolerating the sensation.
Chiropractic treatments for dizziness involve mostly causes in which the neck is associated with the vertigo. These cases are referred to as Cervico-genic vertigo. Cervico-genic vertigo is related to dysfunction of the joints of the neck. Chiropractic treatment of this type of neck pain and dizziness is often quite effective.
