Vertigo And Dizziness


Vertigo, dizziness

Dizziness is a disorienting condition that makes its victims feel as if the earth around them is moving. Sometimes this can be internalized and can actually feel as if the sufferer’s head is spinning. Vertigo is a more serious form of dizziness that affects balance. Those experiencing vertigo usually experience intense dizziness, combined with inability to stand, balance, or distinguish which direction is up or down. Balance is controlled by the inner ear, which can be affected by the pressures on that area that is caused during TMJ. If you experience dizziness and vertigo, it may be caused from TMJ.

This vertigo can also be created by the tension from the jaw contraction because the temporal bone puts pressure on the inner ear. This forces wrong signals sent to your brain about your position which can lead to balance problems.
