Digital vertigo, often called cybersickness, is a new type of dizziness that is becoming more and more pronounced. When one feels dizzy, it is usually due to a malfunction of the nervous system that is responsible for blood and oxygen flow to the brain and body. Sometimes a person will feel dizzy when he gets up too fast from being seated. It is the type of dizziness referred to in this article, and it is often put under the category of vertigo.
Most people are familiar with motion sickness when the body detects movement, but the eyes do not see it, making the person feel nauseous and ill. Cybersickness is the opposite, the eyes see movement through computer screens or tablets, but the body does not feel it, creating similar sensations to motion sickness. This is seen more often in people who have had migraines or concussions. It is also seen more often in women than men.

Finding Relief for Vertigo
It has been discovered through research that a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck – in particular, the atlas or C1 vertebra – can cause such conditions as vertigo. When a misalignment is present, pressure can be put on the brainstem causing signals sent from it to be distorted. This interferes with the normal balance system of the inner ear.
A study was conducted of 60 vertigo patients who received care from an upper cervical chiropractor. All 60 reported a reduction in symptoms, while 48 had their vertigo go away entirely, proving that this form of chiropractic care does indeed help vertigo.
Here at Thrive Chiropractic in Waynesville, Ohio, we use a gentle method to correct the misalignment of the atlas bone. It does not require us to pop or crack the spine in any way. Rather, it encourages the bone to move back into its original place restoring communication signals throughout the body and alleviating or even eliminating vertigo.
