Vertigo Chiropractic Care In Honolulu, HI

Vertigo is a feeling that you are moving or rotating when you are not and is a condition of the vestibular system. Most people experiencing vertigo feel as if they have just gotten off a merry-go-round and everything around you is spinning. Others may feel like objects around you are moving when they’re not. Some conditions associated with vertigo include:

  • Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): the most common diagnosis associated with vertigo and worsened when changing head position suddenly.
  • Meniere's disease: We believe that Meniere’s disease is a syndrome caused by whiplash and that it can take an average of 15 years before the onset of symptoms. Patients may develop vertigo as well as tinnitus and partial or full hearing loss.
  • Labyrinthitis: When the inner ear is infected and becomes inflamed, vertigo often ensues. This is most likely due to the ear filling with fluid and not draining correctly. Vertigo should cease when the infection does.

An estimated 69 million Americans suffer from this type of vestibular dysfunction yearly.

Normally the vestibular system sends messages containing position to the brain. When this system malfunctions these messages are no longer sent/or received correctly by the brain. In turn a person experiences dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and problems focusing (symptoms of vertigo).

How Can Ho'ola Chiropractic Help Relieve Your Lower Back Pain?

Dr. Timothy Luke’s chiropractic approach to treating low back pain is to find the source of the back pain and correct it, not just treat the symptom; this ensures that the body can heal naturally.

Low back pain often responds dramatically to the correction of vertebrae positioning and the restoration of normal motion.

Dr. Luke will use spinal manipulations or adjustments to precisely apply a directed force to the vertebrae that is out of position. Gradually, these adjustments help restore normal range of motion, position and function of the joint. The doctor may either use their hands or specialized tools to apply a quick thrust or slower pressure to the misaligned joint.
