We also want to introduce you to a form of care that has had an extremely high success rate in case of studies for vertigo and dizziness — upper cervical care. One very telling study involved 60 vertigo patients who underwent upper cervical care. In the end, 48 of the 60 patients saw a complete end to their vertigo.
The other 12 patients also saw significant benefits with bouts becoming less frequent and severe. Something important to note in the study is that all of the patients had an upper cervical misalignment and 56 of the 60 patients had a history of head or neck trauma that caused their misalignments.
