Upper Cervical Care for vertigo relief in Fort Myers

Sometimes, despite your efforts to ease your vertigo, your symptoms only worsen. This can be due to an underlying condition that needs to be addressed. Otherwise, your symptoms will worsen, and you will always struggle with air travel.

Many patients who seek vertigo relief in Fort Myers found their symptoms improving through Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments. This natural method specifically works for people whose vertigo is triggered by upper cervical misalignments. 

If you've been involved in a sporting injury, car accident, or physical assault even from many years back, it may have caused a misalignment in your upper cervical spine and caused miscommunication between your brain and vestibular system, leading to vertigo. A previous accident or injury, or repetitive stress in the Upper Cervical area, where your spine's topmost bones are located, can all lead to the improper alignment of these bones. These bones cannot return to their proper alignment without professional help, and if left ignored, they can only trigger worse symptoms.
