At Diamond Chiropractic in Omaha, our chiropractor will perform an examination, take x-rays, and evaluate your posture to determine the cause of your dizziness/ vertigo/ fainting. After comparing the findings and confirming the diagnosis, our chiropractor will develop a treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms, heal the pain, and provide you with recommendations to lower your risk for possible re-occurrences.
Our doctor will realign the vertebrae in the affected area to increase your range of motion and alleviate the pain on the spinal nerves. We will focus on the imbalanced zone(s) connected to your case and begin treatment from there. We may include the Hallpike maneuver during adjustments, allowing him to reposition any dislodged crystals into the proper inner ear tubules. Symptoms resulting from dizziness, vertigo or fainting, from other nerves in the affected area, may begin to decrease as well.
Intersegmental traction involves the use of a special chiropractic table. This specific table includes rollers that will roll along the sides of the spinal column, allowing blood to flow through the tight muscles and ligaments. As this occurs, the muscles and ligaments loosen up and relax more; in addition, your spine will become more mobile.
Electro-therapy, or acupuncture, is effective with dizziness/ vertigo/ fainting. This is achieved through targeting certain acupuncture points during treatment, as well as an electro-muscle stimulator during therapy. Patients will notice, after several treatments, the pain in the injured area(s) begin to decrease. In addition, they will start to see more mobility come back to their spine and other affected areas of the body.
With any injury, whether to the back, neck, or extremity, the last thing you want to do is make the pain worse. The same idea applies to handling cases of dizziness, fainting and/or vertigo. Our advice is designed to help you perform everyday tasks and responsibilities safely. This does include suggestions to improving your diet, drinking plenty of water and fluids, and exercising. At Diamond Chiropractic, we focus on healing and relief from dizziness, vertigo or fainting, not aggravating it.
