Dizziness Treatment in Robina on the Gold Coast

woman hand-on handA sensation of spinning or dizziness, often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea, imbalance, and a feeling that one’s surroundings are moving or tilting. Vertigo or dizziness can be incredibly disturbing, making you feel like you’re always in a washing machine. The cause of dizziness or vertigo can vary from simple dehydration to more complex conditions such as Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV).

What Are Some Common Causes?

Being hydrated is crucial, as dehydration can cause dizziness. However, if you are sufficiently hydrated and still experiencing dizziness, this can be caused by different factors. These include BPPV, stress, an inner ear infection, a subluxated or locked-up upper neck bone, or low blood pressure. Vertigo, another term for dizziness, makes you feel like you’re moving or the world is turning around you.

If you feel dizzy or have vertigo, it’s important to sit or lie down immediately to prevent falls and reduce the spinning sensation.

How Chiropractic May Be Helpful

Before starting care, Dr Laura Priestley (Chiropractor) thoroughly examines patients to determine the root cause of their dizziness. Care often includes spinal adjustments to restore normal spinal function, which improves the brain-body connection. For those with BPPV, an Epley maneuver is performed to correct the displaced crystal in the ear. These approaches are often complemented with stress management techniques and lifestyle advice.

The relief from dizziness after chiropractic care varies from person to person, depending on the cause, age, health status, and lifestyle. Some forms of dizziness may require repeated chiropractic sessions and might take longer to subside.

Does Neck Condition Influence Dizziness?

Yes, if your neck isn’t functioning properly, it can cause dizziness. This is another aspect where chiropractic care may be particularly beneficial.
