Upper cervical care in Calgary provides vertigo patients lasting relief from their various health problems. Vertigo causes a spinning sensation. People with vertigo have a feeling that they are spinning, or have an impression that the things around them are rotating. In truth, it is a false feeling of movement. Often, inner ear problems cause vertigo.



Sudden changes in your head position frequently trigger vertigo. Various people often describe it in the following terms:

  • Getting forced in one direction
  • Feeling off-balanced
  • Spinning 
  • Tilting
  • Swaying
  • Whirling

Accompanying symptoms may consist of these: 

  • Sweating
  • Weakness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Hearing loss
  • Visual disturbances
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Nystagmus – abnormal eye jerking
  • Problems talking
  • Difficulty walking
  • Tinnitus – ringing in the ears.
  • Decreased consciousness

Symptoms may affect a person for a few minutes to several hours and may also come about irregularly. For this reason, many patients turn to upper cervical care in Calgary to manage their vertigo episodes and find the answers they need about their symptoms.


What Causes Vertigo Attacks?

Here are some of the most common conditions that have vertigo as a symptom:

  • A Migraine

It is a neurological condition that usually causes vertigo attacks followed by extreme head pain. However, the head pain does not always happen. 

  • BPPV (benign paroxysmal positional vertigo)

The inner ear is in charge of sending information to the brain about the movements of the head and body concerning gravity. In other words, the inner ear manages your sense of balance.

BPPV occurs when canaliths or minute calcium particles clump together in the canals of the inner ear. These clumps of canalith disrupt the proper signals that reach the brain. As a result, it causes you to experience vertigo attacks whenever you move your head.

  • Vestibular Neuronitis or Labyrinthitis

These two are inner ear conditions linked to a viral infection that causes inflammation. They specifically damage the nerves that are responsible for your sense of balance. 

  • Meniere’s Disease

It is most likely due to fluid buildup and changes in the pressures within the inner ear. As a result, this condition can cause tinnitus, hearing loss, and also vertigo.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

Vertigo often comes unexpectedly from this condition. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disabling disease of the spinal cord and the brain.

  • Acoustic Neuroma

A surprising reason for vertigo is due to a tumor of the nerve tissue in the inner ear. Thus, people with this condition may also experience tinnitus or ringing in one ear as well as hearing loss.

  • Head and Neck Trauma

When any of the two uppermost vertebrae of the upper cervical spine shift out of alignment because of an accident involving the head or neck, then a spinning sensation can happen.


Repeated Exposure to Ultrasound Can Cause Vertigo

A study discovered that getting exposed to airborne ultrasound produced by loudspeakers, public address systems, and door sensors can also cause vertigo. Such devices are in sports stadiums, public libraries, railway stations, museums, and schools. Repeated exposure to sound waves of specific high frequencies created from these standard daily gadgets can cause several health problems, including:

  • Severe vertigo
  • Migraines
  • Many other forms of dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Tinnitus
  • Fatigue

A study conducted at the University of Southampton uncovered the fact that people got exposed to many ultrasounds often unknowingly. These are sounds at high frequencies of about 20 kHz. We cannot hear them.

Professor Tim Leighton, the author of the study, used his smartphone to monitor these high-frequency sounds in various public areas where numerous people previously reported feeling dizzy, sick, and tired. The professor’s findings proved that we are getting bombarded by even higher frequencies than just 20 kHz.

He explained that the current work-safe-level guidelines are not sufficient to counter the present rate of ultrasound exposure. Being aware of the current situation is essential, so more people can take safety measures. However, if you are not aware that such dangers exist, you might be already affected without knowing why.


Natural Vertigo Care For Calgary Residents

With so many claims seen online and offline about effective methods of dealing with vertigo, people can’t help but wonder: How will you know which ones are true? Well, an important thing to have would be proof! 

Upper cervical chiropractic care helps people with various health issues, especially those dealing with vertigo. Here’s solid proof!

A case study observed 60 participants, all of whom suffered from vertigo attacks. Out of the 60 patients, 56 of them had some trauma before their vertigo episodes began. These incidents or events included:

  • Car accidents
  • Sporting accidents
  • Sliding and falling incidents (from the stairs, icy sidewalks or floors)
  • Whiplash

Upon further examination, the doctors learned that all 60 patients had a misalignment located in the top bones of their neck. Each patient received upper cervical adjustments. Finally, at the end of the study, out of the 60 people, 48 reported complete resolution of their vertigo while the remaining 12 reported seeing significant improvements.
