Are You A Victim Of A Rare Disease? Choose an 'Unconventional' Path!
Medicine has evolved in recent times to perform miracles when it comes to the most serious emergency trauma situations. However, what if you do not have an emergency trauma situation? What if you suffer from something worse, something that cannot be seen; only you can feel it with every passing breath? Medical practitioners, generally term such conditions as idiopathic – a condition without any known cause; hence, without an established treatment plan, and no known cure.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care - Alternative Medicine
If you suffer from Vertigo, it may be the result of another existing condition such as, Meniere’s disease or without any connection of other symptoms, in which case, it is known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). However, in both cases, it is confusion between the mind and body, leading to recurring dizziness, spinning sensations and loss of balance that keep getting worse. Even then, a medical practitioner will not be able to help you unless he sees proof of your condition in seemingly endless medical exams, to confirm your diagnosis. Even with a diagnosis what are your options in a medical setting? DRUGS or SURGERY. A colossal waste of time and money!
The Truth About Treatment - What You Should Know
This is when it is essential to defy the norms, rely on Alternative Medicine. One such branch of Alternative Medicine is Chiropractic Care, more specifically, Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care, which relates the condition of vertigo to spinal defects, and brings hope for long-term relief.
Vertigo alone, or associated with other dysfunctions such as Meniere’s disease, is not only caused by defects in the inner ear function. Instead, disequilibrium is most commonly cervical in origin. The cervical spine, therefore, has been established as the leading cause in regulating the body’s sense of equilibrium. However, to confirm if your state of vertigo is of cervical origin, you should take the initiative of taking the Hautant’s test before any physician prescribes it for you. This test measures the ability of the cervical spine to appropriately regulate the muscle tone in the extremities.

How Can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Help You?
The first neck bone or the first cervical spine is called C1. The unique position and shape of this bone provides a coupling mechanism between the head, neck, and lower spine. Most importantly, inside the top of the spine, closest to C1, lies the lower part of the brain stem and the beginning of the spinal cord as shown in Figure 2. Disturbance to C1, may lead to a change in its position, causing disruptions and in severe cases choking of the nerves communicating with the inner ear; hence, causing vertigo like symptoms.
The basis of the Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care in Alternative medicine is to re-adjust the cervical bone, to be able to release the pressure off the brain stem and spinal cord. By reducing this pressure, the transmission of nerve impulses, is no longer hindered, allowing the body to naturally reduce and eliminate vertigo symptoms by correcting the root cause.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care might not be the first treatment you seek for your condition of Vertigo; however, it is the only hope to relieve you of your daily symptoms, by providing a clear communication path between your mind and body.
