Dizziness or vertigo can have many causes, so it's important to see a medical doctor to rule out serious problems. In some cases, however, your dizziness can be treated by a chiropractor. You can help the chiropractor reach a diagnosis by noting when your dizziness occurs, how long it lasts, and what you're doing when it occurs. He or she may perform adjustments to the back and neck that may help your condition. Dizziness is often associated with inner ear infections, and it's believed that adjustments to the neck may help fluids drain from the ear and relieve pressure and pain, as well as vertigo. Other causes of dizziness that can be treated by a chiropractor include dietary and nutritional deficiencies. A chiropractor may also prescribe certain balance exercises and stretches to help you control or deal with the symptoms better. You may not notice a difference in your condition immediately, especially if your dizziness was severe, so be patient. It's important to work with your chiropractor and let him or her know about any changes in your condition, or if certain therapies seem to work better than others.
