Jordin Sparks and Sleepless Nights

When former American Idol star Jordin Sparks suffered from four sleepless nights, she told reporters it was due to her ongoing bouts with Vertigo. The ironic part is that one of her songs, which is about how love is making her dizzy, is called Vertigo.

Unfortunately, now she suffers from this debilitating conditions, and she understands well the impact of this condition. She even wrote in a Twitter post, “I have not had a solid sleep session for 4 days. I have a serious case of vertigo. Dizzy when I’m up & dizzy when I’m laying down.”

Now, Jordin Sparks knows from experience just what millions of people throughout the United States feel when they suffer from vestibular disorders like Vertigo. There are, of course, dozens of over-the-counter and prescription medications she and millions of others people can and do take. The problem is they only cover the pain be managing the symptoms, but they do not address the underlying cause.

Vertigo and more

Often times, vestibular disorders such as Vertigo, dizziness, disequilibrium, and other similar conditions can be traced back to a misalignment in the upper neck due to a head or neck injury. Much of what we know about vertigo has been discovered within the last 10 years or so thanks to Dr. Michael Burcon.

During that time, he has focused his research on finding the effects of specific chiropractic corrections to the upper cervical spine on patients who suffer from Vertigo. A study of his showed that adjustments to the upper cervical spine led to a reduction or elimination of symptoms in 136 of 139 patients. All 139  of those patients had suffered from cervical traumas due to whiplash they suffered in auto accidents. Among those patients who continued to suffer from Vertigo, after two years, they rated the reduction of their symptoms on an average from from an 8.5 to a 1.4.

The Bottom Line of Vertigo

So, whether your Jordin Sparks or one of the other countless people who suffer from Vertigo, it is very likely that it could be due to a head or neck injury. That means it’s important to entrust your care to an upper cervical chiropractor, so they can examine your upper neck vertebrae for any misalignments that may be the underlying cause of your Vertigo.
