How a Superhero Fought Against Vertigo

On film, he is one of the most powerful among the mutants. With his telepathic power, he can control other people’s minds. In reality, he could not even stand straight and had no control over his body. For millions of X-Men fans, he is the iconic Dr. Charles Francis Xavier in the reel world.  But in real life, he is known as the brilliant actor Patrick Stewart. For years, he struggled with undiagnosed vertigo. Fortunately, he is now receiving the health care he needs for this condition.

There are many people like Stewart who need help. Many wish for vertigo relief in Redwood City as a result.  Before we go into details about upper cervical chiropractic, an alternative method for dealing with vertigo, let’s know more about this unsettling health concern that makes millions suffer each day.

Vertigo Defined

Vertigo is a symptom that makes a person experience spinning dizziness.  It is like riding a very fast merry-go-round that suddenly turns without warning. The dizziness lasts for a few seconds, or it can go on for several minutes. 

Some of the other symptoms of vertigo include:

  • Loss of balance or disequilibrium
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Known Causes of Vertigo

For individuals who seek vertigo relief in Redwood City, it can be challenging. Thankfully, many know better than Stewart, who went undiagnosed for years. By visiting a chiropractic office, they learned that vertigo might be caused by:

  • Vestibular Neuritis – The vestibular nerve, which is found near our inner ear sends signals to the brain that enable us to maintain and control body balance. When this nerve is injured or inflamed,  the signals become distorted, and our sense of balance is also affected.
  • Migraine – A condition that makes a person suffer from very intense throbbing, pulsating, or pressing headaches. These headaches may also come with dizziness, ringing in the ears or tinnitus, nausea, and vomiting.
  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo  - Also called BPPV, this disorder affects a person’s sense of balance when naturally occurring calcium crystals accumulate in the inner ear.  When these crystals are moved from their position and rest inside any of the inner ear canals, it causes a person to feel dizzy.
