HOW TO HEAL VERTIGO

WHAT IS VERTIGO?

First, let's go over what vertigo is. It's a feeling of dizziness, all the time. It's triggered by certain positioning of your head and probably gets worse when you move your head.

Effects of vertigo are:

A sense of spinning        Dizziness      Headache     Imbalance    Fatigue

Causes of vertigo are:

Meniere's disease      Inner Ear Infection    Head or Neck Injury   Stroke or Tumor

Medicines that cause ear damage

CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP VERTIGO?

There is one super common cause that I haven't mentioned above because, quite frankly, doctors just aren't trained to look for it. 

It's called a trigger point. A pathogenic knot in a muscle causing discomfort, pain and dysfunction. In the case of vertigo, if you're sure that your vertigo isn't caused by any of the above (except for the head/neck injury) then acupuncture absolutely can help you. 

In the illustration below, the black X's mark the spots where these knots are. These trigger points cause the muscle to get so tight that it compresses against your aorta, cutting off the oxygen supply to your brain, making you dizzy. It sounds scary, but it's actually not, it's an easy fix!
