Recent studies have shown that BPPV, a vestibular disorder, significantly impacts sleep quality. Various factors, including heart rate, brain activity, eye movements, and respiratory quality, were analyzed among study participants. The findings indicated that BPPV patients often experience poor-quality sleep, leading to decreased daytime function.

Address posture problems caused by injuries through Upper Cervical Care. With the help of an Fremont Chiropractor like Dr. Forest, you can improve your balance and alleviate vestibular symptoms, including vertigo.
Persistent vertigo linked to conditions like BPPV may find its roots in undetected misalignments in the upper cervical spine, specifically the atlas and axis vertebrae housing the brainstem. Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments target these misalignments, relieving pressure on the brainstem and enhancing the nervous system's function. Correcting misalignments promotes the seamless transmission of signals related to balance and movement, potentially reducing the frequency and intensity of vertigo episodes.
Various factors, including trauma, poor posture, and stress, contribute to upper cervical misalignments. Trauma, even seemingly minor incidents, and prolonged poor posture can adversely affect the spine. Stress-induced muscle tension may exacerbate misalignments.
Regular check-ups with an Fremont Chiropractic doctor, maintaining good posture, and stress management techniques prove crucial to prevent such issues. By addressing upper cervical misalignments through targeted care and adopting preventive measures, individuals can take proactive steps toward alleviating persistent vertigo associated with BPPV.
