A person with vertigo has the illusion that the room is spinning or their own body is spinning. A person feels rotational movement and unidirectional movement with vertigo.
The perception of this motion comes with a minor difference, according to Dr Lauren Clum DC. Objective vertigo is when the patient feels the environment is moving around them, whereas, subjective vertigo is when the patient feels they are turning in the environment.
There is a very important distinction between vertigo and dizziness. Patients in CA are more inclined to describe dizziness as any feelings of loss of balance, light-headed or nausea without motion perception.
Here’s what your Oakland Chiropractor will do: get your history, examine you thoroughly and let you undergo neurological and orthopaedic tests to find out what is really causing your vertigo and dizziness. After which, they will make a therapeutic plan of management tailor-made for your case.
