Suffering from vertigo in Asheville NC?

Headache Migraine Relief

Are you dealing with vertigo or dizziness in Asheville, NC? It's a common issue that Dr. Acton at Acton Family Chiropractic encounters when patients come to our office seeking relief. Many of these individuals have previously sought help from other healthcare providers with limited success. Surprisingly, they often report receiving insufficient information about the causes of their dizziness (specifically vertigo) and the best available treatment options. Contact us today to discover how chiropractic care in Asheville, NC can assist you.

It's important to understand that when people say they feel dizzy, they might be referring to two different situations. Some use the term “dizzy” to describe the sensation of almost fainting or passing out, while others use it to explain the feeling that the objects around them are spinning or moving. The medical term for the latter situation is vertigo. It's crucial to differentiate between these two sensations because each has distinct causes and requires specific treatments.

At Acton Family Chiropractic, Dr. Acton can help determine the difference between the two and provide appropriate guidance.


Dr. Acton at Acton Family Chiropractic has encountered various causes of vertigo among our patients, but certain factors are more common than others. The following is a list of some frequently observed causes of vertigo in our clinic:

  1. Severe headaches, such as migraines or tension headaches, can induce dizziness and a feeling of sickness.
  2. Chronic earaches or damage to the inner ear.
  3. Insufficient blood flow to the brain.
  4. Car accidents leading to joint and ligament damage throughout the spine.
  5. Misalignments or subluxations of the vertebrae in the neck are the most common causes of vertigo.

While the above list may appear unrelated, these factors share a critical aspect. Each one plays a significant role in the body's orientation and balance. When this balance is disrupted, the body functions abnormally, resulting in vertigo. Typically, the imbalance leading to vertigo stems from distorted and scrambled nervous system signals that should maintain our balance. Fortunately, Dr. Acton at Acton Family Chiropractic specializes in stabilizing nervous system function and
offer a unique approach to treatment.
