Vertigo Treatment in Houston That Is Better Than Just "Par for the Course"

Vertigo, Dizzy, DizzinessVertigo is a condition that does not discriminate. As many as 10 percent of people suffer from vertigo, from the average Joe to golf superstars. For people over 40, 2 in 5 will suffer from vertigo.1 In fact, 2.5 percent of visits to the ER between 1995 and 2004 are attributed to vertigo.2

What causes vertigo is sometimes a mystery, but researchers do know that the primary part of a person that is affected is the Vestibular System which is responsible for balance and orientation.3 Fluid in the ear canal works together with the brain and spinal cord to maintain balance. When this process is interrupted, vertigo occurs.

Vertigo has become a newsworthy medical condition since Jason Day collapsed during the second day of the US Open golf tournament. The pro golfer from Australia has suffered from vertigo since 2010. 4 Day takes medication in order to combat the condition while playing professionally, and shot 6 under par on the day the incident occurred.

Houston vertigo specialist

Of course, most individuals who experience vertigo are not professional athletes and are just looking for a way to cope with the debilitating symptoms at work, school, and home. In Houston, Texas, one source of relief is the Upper Cervical Chiropractic practice of Dr. Jason Minogue. This strategy works for vertigo because a misalignment of the Atlas (C1) vertebrae can negatively affect the Eustachian tubes, a critical part of the Vestibular System. One clinical trial revealed that 4 of 5 patients had their vertigo eliminated through Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments, while the other 1 in 5 saw an improvement of their symptoms. 5

Dr. Minogue is a specialist in realigning the C1 vertebrae. A consultation may be your first step in long-term, natural relief from your vertigo symptoms.
