Almost everyone has experienced dizziness or vertigo at one time or another. Approximately 69 million of those living in the United States have reported having some sort of dizziness. The vestibular system is the part of the body that is responsible for balance. This system is made up of the eyes, nervous system, brain, and ears. These all work together and are tightly balanced to keep the body functioning at its best.
The body gathers information about where it is located in its environment through these various parts.
- The eyes receive visual aspects of movement.
- The inner ear perceives how the body is moving.
- The nervous system sends signals to the brain via nerves.
- The brain quickly processes the information received and responds.
When dizziness occurs, something within this system has malfunctioned. This can be due to a number of things going on in the body or in the external environment.

Wi-Fi—The Cause of Dizziness?
Some people believe that their chronic headaches and unexplained dizziness are linked to a Wi-Fi signal. New research has indicated that some may be experiencing sensitivity to the electromagnetic fields that surround tablets and cell phones due to the Wi-Fi signal. This condition is called EHS, or electromagnetic hypersensitivity, according to the World Health Organization.
Although this has not been validated as an actual condition, one study did find that participants felt much improved after Wi-Fi was removed from their immediate vicinity. It appears that rather than Wi-Fi causing the problem, it may be making worse a condition that already exists with the person.
A Healthy Spine Helps with Dizziness
Upper cervical chiropractors understand that what may cause one of the balancing systems of the body to malfunction is a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. We focus attention on finding a patient’s misalignment and then correcting it by a gentle method. Often this is all that is needed to help a person escape the cycle of dizziness. My own patients’ testimonials and case studies have shown this to be true.
