Vertigo is a common symptom presenting in chiropractic patients, especially after head and neck trauma. Vertigo and dizziness can be a very disabling complaint. It is a sense of dizziness or spinning, sometimes associated with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sweating.
It can have many causes and in most cases it is a treatable condition. The treatment used obviously depends on the cause. That is why the chiropractor has to do a thorough examination when you first come in for treatment.
In some cases you may have to be referred to a neurologist for further assessments. But the good news is that the most common causes respond well to conservative care.
