What To Do About Vertigo


Our St George chiropractor, Dr. Tom Johnson, uses his chiropractic knowledge to aid various conditions that may not be painful, but are unsettling. Dizziness is one of these conditions. When you experience vertigo or episodes of dizziness, you typically are not in pain, but you are limited. You are unable to move freely, may have to spend the day in bed without being able to work or enjoy life and you may be unable to drive. These vertigo effects change the way you make money, take care of yourself and your family, and view the world. When you have frequent dizziness, you never know when it will occur. Will you wake up dizzy in the morning? Will it strike when you are at the grocery store? Even traveling becomes questionable when you are experiencing dizziness. Dr. Johnson applies chiropractic techniques to alleviate dizziness and restore your enjoyable life.

Reasons for Dizziness

You may already know the reasons for your dizziness if you have a condition such as Meniere's disease or Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. These conditions may also be connected with ear ringing and ear fullness or flare up more with sudden movements. Other causes for dizziness include:

  • auto accident injuries
  • whiplash
  • concussions
  • infections
  • migraines
  • poor circulation
  • Parkinson's disease
  • low blood pressure
  • low blood sugar
  • medications
  • panic attacks

Often, when you understand the reasons for dizziness, it becomes less scary, but it still interferes with your daily life.

Chiropractic Care for Dizziness in St George

Dr. Johnson wants you to live without the fear of dizziness. Chiropractic care provides a total-body approach and our St George chiropractor evaluates your physical, mental and lifestyle to help you make small changes that lessen your dizziness. Once Dr. Johnson identifies the cause of your dizziness, his goal is to eliminate that. As opposed to suggesting medications to cover up the dizzy spells, our chiropractor will reduce the reason for your dizziness so you are able to maintain a drug-free, natural life.

Chiropractic adjustments are the base of your dizziness care program. Dr. Johnson positions your neck and back into a healthy alignment that enhances nerve flow and circulation. As circulation improves and blood pressure evens out, your dizziness decreases. When our St George chiropractor adjusts the vertebrae in your neck, this releases pressure in your ears which also helps to reduce dizziness. When you remain consistent with your chiropractic adjustments, your overall health improves. You feel stronger and more focused and less anxious, which reduces your symptoms of panic attacks. If you suffer from dizziness connected to migraines, chiropractic adjustments are successful in reducing the frequency and severity of migraines which also reduces your vertigo.

When dizziness is sudden from an injury such as whiplash or a concussion, Dr. Johnson gently positions your neck and back into a better alignment to promote a speedy recovery from your injuries, so you do not live with the dizzy effects.
