Vancouver Disc Centers Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be distressing. Vancouver Disc Centers welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Vancouver chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a careful examination to establish a potentially helpful treatment plan for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Vancouver neck pain.


The structure and function 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.


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 help. 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 cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain 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.


Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed via a careful examination is important to relief for 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. (4) Vancouver Disc Centers’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine neck pain issues is effective, gentle, and safe.
