Vertigo, Dizziness, Dizzy, MenieresMost health practitioners are stumped when it comes to identifying the cause of vertigo. Most often, the reason for this condition ends up being head trauma.

In 2006, 60 vertigo patients were a part of a study, 56 of whom could remember a head or neck trauma in the past.1 These injuries were caused by various events such as:

  • Car accident
  • Slipping and falling
  • Bike accident
  • Skiing accident
  • Horseback riding

This shows a correlation between trauma and the onset of vertigo. It is interesting to note that some of the injuries reported in the study were not even that serious. However, it does not take a serious injury to cause a misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae.

Natural Relief from Vertigo in West Des Moines

Dr. Laurel Griffin is a vertigo specialist in West Des Moines. Dr. Griffin uses upper cervical chiropractic to realign the C1 and C2 vertebrae. Using diagnostic imaging and other methods to determine if a misalignment exists allows Dr. Griffin to get to the cause of your vertigo, rather than merely treating the symptoms.

Realigning the C1 and C2 vertebrae allow the brain and body to resume proper communication. This has led to relief for many. Take the aforementioned study for example. One of the individuals in that study had been experiencing vertigo for 37 years. After just one month, that patient was symptom-free.
