Are you suffering from Vertigo/ Dizziness?

Learn how a single treatment could improve your life.

Vertigo is another name for dizziness or an illusion of movement. The room may seem like is spinning, rocking, swaying, or you may feel uncoordinated and off-balance. You may also feel nausea, vomiting, sweating, and have difficulty walking. Symptoms may worsen with movement of the head.

When all other potential causes of dizziness are ruled out, such as hypoglycemia, inner ear infections, and BPPV, the joints and muscles of the neck may be considered the cause of dizziness. This may occur with the increased tightness of muscles or limited mobility of the joints in the neck due to chronic pain or injury. Additional causes related to dizziness include whiplash injury, inflammatory conditions, or other movement dysfunctions of the neck.

The vestibular system is one of the three systems our body uses for balance. This system receives information when we move our head and is imperative for functions such as balance, spatial orientation, postural control, and muscle tone. Compromised input to the vestibular system may lead to vertigo and balance problems, in addition to other difficulties such as difficulty reading, paying attention (ADD), eye movement disorders, and head tilt.

The neck muscles surrounding the atlas (first cervical vertebrae) play a significant role in giving feedback to our brain to determine if muscle tone needs to increase or decrease when we are moving or sitting still. Research shows that vestibular contributions in neck muscles are nearly 3x greater than in other muscles of the body. If muscle tone is increased due to pain, or you do not have full neck range of motion, the feedback to your brain is likely diminished. Over time, you may notice symptoms worsening with movement. You may also notice that you are moving your head less due to increased dizziness or nausea.

If the muscles surrounding the neck are constantly weak, tense, or imbalanced, they may send distorted or decreased information to the brain about balance or proprioception (where the body is positioned in space). Pain in the region of the neck may also inhibit the muscles, causing them to become tight and dysfunctional. This will confuse the input into the vestibular system. The AtlasPROfilax technique helps to reduce the tight musculature and fascia surrounding the atlas and neck.

If vertigo is not a cause of neurological conditions, hypoglycemia, inner ear conditions, or diabetes, the AtlasPROfilax technique has seen a significant reduction in symptoms related to vertigo.

A one-time application of the AtlasPROfilax treatment can help safely and effectively decrease your symptoms of vertigo.

*There are many other causes of vertigo, such as BPPV, Meniere’s disease, neuritis, tumors, infection, arterial dysfunction, and more. These conditions should be ruled out. However, if you have had any immediate onset of symptoms, or any symptoms associated with recent trauma, it is best to seek help from your primary physician first.
