Abstract

Vertigo is a common presenting problem that can seriously impact the quality of life of those patients affl icted. Osteopathic education and training adds cranial manipulation as a potential treatment component to traditional allopathic approaches to vertigo. There has not been much current medical literature available; however, there have been several recently presented case reports and a case series enhancing the medical literature regarding this topic. A 54-year-old male was seen in the clinic office with recurring episodes of dizziness and headache for over three months. Osteopathic manipulative treatment was applied to the cranial field to successfully treat his problems. Although decreased, his dizziness and headaches returned the second day following treatment. The case presented here is instructive to demonstrate how taking a holistic osteopathic result can enable us to provide fuller care and resolve some problems that have an unusual etiology.
