Vertigo & Massage

People with vertigo suffer from the brain's misinterpretation of perceived movement. One common cause for vertigo is Sternocleidomastoid (SCM) Syndrome. This is a condition in which muscles in the neck, specifically the sternocleidomastoid muscles, compress nerves and blood vessels affecting the brain.

The Key That Unlocks the Door

Vertigo & Massage

Massage treats vertigo by releasing compression in the SCM. Although a tight SCM is the primary cause of vertigo and headaches, the person usually does not experience any neck pain.

Cautions

Vertigo & Massage

Use caution when working the SCM, and never massage the two SCMs simultaneously, because the carotid artery (the main blood vessel going to your brain) runs along this muscle. Also, stretch the SCM with caution, because people suffering from vertigo experience dizziness, vomiting and ringing in their ears, which can be aggravated by stimulation of the muscle.

Healing Hands

Vertigo & Massage

Common massage techniques used to treat vertigo are active release techniques (ART), soft tissue therapy, joint manipulation, activator joint adjustments, trigger point therapy and light stretching. In order to be trained in these modalities, you have to be a licensed/certified massage therapist.

Causes

Vertigo & Massage

Repeated vertigo due to an SCM injury usually relates to the person’s sleeping posture. Massage helps realign the SCM so it will sense when a pillow is too high or too low.

If All Else Fails

Vertigo & Massage

Vertigo that is experienced for more than a couple of days, or without tightness in the SCM, requires immediate attention from a doctor. Please keep in mind that there are several other more serious causes of vertigo.
