What Causes Vertigo

Typically, vertigo is the symptom of an underlying disease. Common medical problems that result in vertigo include Meniere's disease, acute peripheral vestibulopathy, strokes, labyrinthitis, brain injury, brain tumors, and multiple sclerosis.

While having vertigo isn't always a sign of a chronic medical condition, it can be. It's best to consult with a doctor if you experience vertigo regularly.

Classifications of Vertigo

Vertigo is classified into two categories: central and peripheral. In central vertigo, the imbalance stems from the central nervous system (CNS). In peripheral vertigo, a problem occurs in the ear. Vertigo can also be categorized as objective and subjective, depending on whether the environment is moving.

Symptoms

A change in the position of your head often triggers vertigo, which produces a feeling of:

  • Swaying
  • Tilting
  • Spinning
  • Dizziness
  • Lack of balance
  • Being pulled to one direction

Other symptoms include:

  • Sweating
  • Ringing in the ears or hearing loss
  • Abnormal or jerking eye movements (nystagmus)
  • Feeling nauseated
  • Vomiting
  • Lack of balance

How Vertigo is Addressed

If you are regularly experiencing vertigo, then tests will be done to determine the root cause of vertigo. Testing can be performed by our licensed chiropractors, sometimes in the form of physical evaluations, CT scans, X-rays, or similar exams. The goal of these tests is to evaluate your vertigo and to explore any possible causes of the symptom. Once a cause is diagnosed, you can then be treated. Our chiropractors will present you with the best treatment option available to eliminate vertigo and its root cause.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I was first recommend to Dr. Molloy a few years ago, and then last year re-injured my back. Dr. Molloy was able to diagnose my problem even before the MRI. Began treating immediately, which after months of pain I finally was able to return to normal activities. I continue to visit for regular adjustments. The Doctor and his office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Being able to see him on my schedule is great. Highly recommended.

    DOC FIXED MY HEART ATTACK!!!! Seriously, after a morning at Condell ER for chest pain, nothing was found. Chest pain continued. Went to Doc, explained the pain. He adjusted a rib in my sternum I had sprained cleaning/moving my 230 pound Dad. Pain immediately GONE!! I have known Doc is a miracle worker for more than 30 years, but this took the cake!! I LOVE you all !!!
