When a person suffers from Vertigo, the experience the sensation of a room or other fixed location spinning. The reason is that the Vestibular System, which is part of the inner ear, is dis-functioning. That is the part of the person’s body that allow them to maintain their balance and recognize spatial orientation.
Here are some types of vertigo that you may be diagnosed with by your doctor.
Underlying Causes of Vertigo
Meniere’s Disease – Pressure to the inner ear, hearing loss, and Tinnitus can be symptoms of this inner ear disorder. Anyone can suffer from this inner ear disorder, but people in their 40’s and 50’s are more susceptible.
Labrynthitis – Hearing loss can be the result of an irritation or swelling of the inner ear. Various complications, such as a cold, flu, allergies, respiratory infection, and more, can trigger a virus or bacteria that leads to this.
Vestibular Neuronitis – When the Vestibular Nerve or Inner Eat becomes inflamed, it can result in the nerves sending the wrong signals to the brain. Those wrong signals tell the brain the body is moving when it isn’t. This can lead to hearing loss or Tinnitus and can be triggered by something as common as a cold or flu.
Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – This is a sudden spinning sensation and is the most common cause of Vertigo. Sudden movements of the head or neck due to a fall, car accident, other conditions, or just standing too quickly can cause this.

Living Beyond Vertigo
Now, the truth is that there are various chronic conditions that can affect any person at any age and cause a person to suffer from vertigo. This condition is not necessarily permanent and even the onset of dizziness due to a child spinning is self-induced vertigo.
Though, it can become a chronic condition and it frequently is related to an injury to the upper cervical spine. Those people would be wise to not simply allow their episodes of dizziness to continue, so as to prolong their suffering, but to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. An upper cervical doctor will evaluate the upper neck to determine if the misalignment has occurred due to an accident or injury. Misalignments of the upper neck are frequently linked to dizziness, vertigo and disequilibrium and can be corrected with a precise upper cervical corrective procedure that chiropractors with specialized training have the ability to perform.
