Dizziness can be distressing. Vancouver Disc Centers
welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness who
are looking for a cause and a solution. Vancouver chiropractic
care of dizziness begins with a careful exam
to set up a potentially helpful treatment plan
for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Vancouver
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The function and structure of
the upper cervical spine may perhaps contribute
to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and
ligaments may impact
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause
confusion for the proprioception system controlled partly
by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in these
ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers invites Vancouver neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness
that occurs in patients with neck pain. No specific
test for cervicogenic dizziness is recognized,
but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who
experience dizziness visit doctors for assistance.
What could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and
interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate
effective proprioception, the recognition of body
position and movement. When this proprioception is altered
with neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One
recent case report of a female aged 24 years
with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness stated improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers begins chiropractic care
with an exam that influences the development of a relieving
Vancouver chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other
disorders revealed via a careful
examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic
dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in
relieving pain for patients in a new paper. (3) Dizziness
may come 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 increase in the range of motion toward the more
restricted side and better function were also noted.

spine pain issues like neck pain
is effective, gentle, and safe.
