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
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
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.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
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.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Connecting dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other
disorders discovered through a careful
examination is key 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.
