Layden Chiropractic Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be troubling. Layden Chiropractic often sees neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Plainville chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a thorough examination to establish a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness associated with spinal issues like Plainville neck pain.


The structure and function of the upper cervical spine possibly will bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in these ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Layden Chiropractic welcomes many Plainville neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is established, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness visit doctors for help. What might the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce useful proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When such proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman who reported cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain described improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) Layden Chiropractic begins chiropractic care with an exam that influences the development of a relieving Plainville chiropractic treatment.


Connecting dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders discovered through a careful examination is important to relief for cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation worked for patients in a new report. (3) Dizziness may result from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a reduction in the intensity of the dizziness and pain, an improvement in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and improved function were also noted. (4) Layden Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine neck pain issues is gentle, safe, and effective.
