If you are standing still but feel as though you are spinning, you are probably experiencing vertigo. Vertigo is correlated with inner ear issues and is probably why you are experiencing spinning symptoms. This feeling of spinning can have various effects and show up in many forms.
Common Symptoms Of Vertigo

There are three different types of inner ear conditions that can ultimately lead to vertigo. The first being Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo, also known as BPPV. This condition happens when particles of calcium build up in the inner ear over a period of time. This phenomenon usually happens in seniors.
Vestibular Neuritis is the second condition and is caused by ear infections. When the inner ear nerves become inflamed, you begin to experience vertigo.
Finally, Meniere’s disease is the final vertigo condition caused by ear infections. Meniere’s disease creates a buildup of fluid and pressure in the inner ear that will eventually lead to vertigo or even long-term hearing loss.
Your inner ear is what helps you keep your balance and overall spatial orientation. So, when vertigo begins to happen, it can make daily tasks extremely difficult and affect your overall quality of life. Fortunately, issues with your inner ear can be corrected through chiropractic adjustment. Correcting your spinal alignment and restoring your overall body function, will help move any built up fragments in your inner ear and make the vertigo symptoms disappear. By receiving regular chiropractic care you can eventually eliminate all vertigo-related symptoms and have a better quality of life.
