I Got Off Zyrtec and Flonase After 3o Years and My Vertigo is 100% Better

I started coming to Baker Chiropractic and Wellness a little more than two years ago. I was experiencing pain with head movement of any kind. I had also been having periods of vertigo over the previous few years.

After speaking with my regular doctor about the neck pain and if there was a connection between it and the vertigo, I was not satisfied with her solution of taking medications. That is when I decided to give chiropractic care a try. I was nervous about having someone work with my neck, but something needed to be done about the pain.

Treatment started with an exam and X-ray. I was actually listened to as I explained what was happening with my neck. It was so refreshing to talk with someone who cared and understood. The X-rays showed the curve in my neck was basically non-existent. He promised that chiropractic treatments could help me. Over the past two years, it really has.

The chiropractic adjustments and treatments started bringing relief to my pain right away. These were combined with recommended home exercises which I still do twice a day. Each follow-up X-ray showed improvement in the curvature of my neck. I was experiencing more neck motion with less pain.

Since starting chiropractic care, there have been no new episodes of vertigo. If I am feeling any change in ear pressure, I let them know at adjustment time. It really helps. I used to experience an average of three headaches a month. Since starting treatment, I have only had a few headaches in the last two years.

An unexpected benefit of chiropractic care has been a huge improvement in my allergies. After moving to Ohio 30 years ago, I started having really bad allergies every spring and fall. It was so bad that I had to use a prescription antihistamine like Zyrtek and Flonase nasal spray. Often I would develop a sinus or ear infection as well. The medications were able to stop the allergy symptoms, but they left me feeling tired all the time. I have not had to take a single antihistamine or use nasal spray in the last two years! I would not say my allergies have completely disappeared, but they have decreased to the point where I can actually live without medication except an occasional decongestant. I have not had any sinus or ear infections either. I no longer have to dread months of feeling like I am living in a medicine fog.

The quality of my life has improved so much since coming to Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. No matter how I am feeling each time I go, I always leave feeling better. I encourage anyone who is suffering to give them a try. I highly recommend them!*
