Dizziness can be troubling. Back And Neck Care Center
often sees neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Severna Park chiropractic
care of dizziness starts with a thorough examination
to establish a potentially relieving treatment plan
for dizziness associated with spinal issues like Severna Park
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The structure and function of
the upper cervical spine may well bring on dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and
ligaments may impact
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause
confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part
by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in these
ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that result
in dizziness. (1) Back And Neck Care Center invites Severna Park neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness
that occurs in patients with neck pain. No particular
test for cervicogenic dizziness is established,
but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who
experience dizziness visit doctors for help.
What could the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and
interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce
useful proprioception, the awareness of body
position and movement. When this proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One
recent case report of a 24-year-old woman
who reported cervicogenic dizziness
and neck pain stated improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Back And Neck Care Center begins chiropractic care
with an exam that leads to an alleviating
Severna Park chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not related to 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 paper. (3) Dizziness
may come from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical
spine manipulation was tested in patients with cervicogenic
dizziness. In addition to a decrease in the intensity of the dizziness
and pain, an increase in the range of motion toward the more
restricted side and improved function were also noted.
(4) The use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical
spine pain issues like neck pain
is gentle, safe, and effective.
