Former American Idol star Jordin Sparks needs NUCCA

ABC news is reporting that singer Jordin Sparks has gone four days without a proper night’s sleep after she was struck down with a crippling bout of vertigo.

Ironically, Jordin Sparks has a song called Vertigo (2009) as well, about how love is making her dizzy.  But, now she is struggling with the actual debilitating condition.

In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, “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.”

Sparks is one of millions of Americans who struggle with vestibular disorders like vertigo.  The medical treatment of vertigo involves dozens of over-the-counter and prescription medications, most of which at best control symptoms. But as with all medications do not get to the cause.

Many people who suffer with vestibular disorders like vertigo, dizziness, disequilibrium and others have a history of head and neck trauma.  Some of the most hopeful research for vertigo sufferers has come out in the past 5 years.

Dr. Michael Burcon has investigated the effects of upper cervical specific chiropractic management of patients medically diagnosed with vertigo.  In one of his studies looking at upper cervical specific chiropractic care and vertigo, one hundred and thirty-six out of the one hundred and thirty-nine patients presented with an absence or dramatic reduction of symptoms, especially vertigo…that’s 97%!

After two years, on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 representing the absence of the symptom and 10 being the worst imaginable, vertigo was lowered from an average of 8.5 to 1.4. Prior to the onset of symptoms, all one hundred and thirty nine cases suffered cervical traumas; most from automobile accidents, resulting in previously undiagnosed whiplash injuries.

If Jordin Sparks or others struggling with vertigo have a history of head or neck trauma, an upper neck evaluation is extremely important. This type of evaluation can only be performed by an upper cervical specialist to determine if the underlying damage to the upper neck is likely leading to these problems.

If you are in the Renton area and have a history of head or neck trauma and are suffering from similar symptoms taking the first step is easy!
