If you are looking for "acupuncture for vertigo near me," the Hogan Chiropractic Sugar Land location is the place to get treatment with acupuncture for vertigo for those living in the southwestern part of Houston, TX.
Vertigo is a medical condition where you suddenly feel everything is whirling or spinning, even though your body is not moving.
The two types of vertigo are peripheral vertigo and central vertigo. Peripheral vertigo is the most common type.
Peripheral vertigo may be caused by inner ear inflammation, head trauma, stroke, tumors, and Meniere's disease. Peripheral vertigo may also be a negative side effect of taking certain medications.
An example of peripheral vertigo is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV). For BPPV to occur, calcium crystals in the inner ear, called otoconia, dislodge from their proper position. This disrupts a person's normal sense of balance.
Central vertigo may come from problems in the central nervous system, such as a stroke, brain tumor, multiple sclerosis, or a head injury.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow to improve health and wellbeing.
Studies have shown that acupuncture can effectively treat vertigo, particularly when caused by a disturbance in the inner ear.
Acupuncture can address the underlying causes of vertigo by stimulating the body's healing mechanisms to reduce inflammation, improve blood circulation, and reduce muscle tension. This can help to address the underlying causes of vertigo, such as inflammation in the inner ear. Acupuncture may also help to reduce the symptoms of vertigo.
