McHenry Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at Spengel Chiropractic

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be frustrating, but it can also affect balance and lead to falls. Dizziness with related cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Spengel Chiropractic shares new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role McHenry chiropractic care contributes in relieving neck pain and oftentimes related dizziness.

CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS

Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often have dizziness as well as neck pain. Many already-published studies, both clinical and basic science, describe the connection of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A new study indicated that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of these patients. Inappropriate neck postures over long time periods may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have separate prompts for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may trigger general dizziness, particularly in women who are older. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain pointed out that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly indicated that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness arose from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness occurred with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such cervical spine degenerative disc disease also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, particularly inflammatory cytokines that trigger mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs resulting in dizziness. The good news: a majority of cervical spine disc disease patients and related dizziness report that conservative treatment is effective for them. (3) Spengel Chiropractic is the place for conservative chiropractic care of McHenry neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also reported dizziness revealed that chiropractic is frequently utilized by these patients to manage their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors reported that the neck pain and related dizziness was quite responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) Spengel Chiropractic utilizes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related McHenry neck pain.
