Vertigo can be treated by acupuncture. If it is crystal fall off in the ear, some movement also can put the ear crystal back and stop vertigo. Acupuncture helps balance the energy, which helps stop vertigo.

Thank you for your question,

Vertigo is frequently treated successfully with acupuncture. We will first do a complete history and evaluation, which will help us to better advise as to course of treatment.
Yes! Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine is highly effective for vertigo and other related patterns. Acupuncturists first determine what type of vertigo you have based on your symptoms and move forward with a specific protocol depending if your pattern is deficient, in excess or if the vertigo is being caused by internal pathology vs. vestibular issues.

It depends what caused the vertigo. I believe acupuncture can treat vertigo caused by blood pressure irregular changing, middle ear problem, and some neck problems.

Yes, Vertigo can be successfully treated with Acupuncture. I need to do a full assessment in order to obtain the rational for your Vertigo. There could be many reasons why you are experiencing vertigo, and all possible causes will be considered. However, in some cases, after my assessment I may have to refer you to a Neurologist, because in some cases the Vertigo is a symptom of a neurological condition that cannot be treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine, and you may need western diagnostic methods as prescribed by your Physician.
It's depends of the cause of problem.  The most commonly I see in my practice for vertigo is due to BPPV where the crystal in your ear dislodged.  In this case, it can be treated by the simple maneuver (ie: Epley's).  I recommend to go ENT first and obtain proper diagnosis.
