Dizziness can be troubling. Spengel Chiropractic
often sees neck pain patients with dizziness who
are looking for a cause and a solution. McHenry chiropractic
care of dizziness begins with a thorough exam
to set up a potentially helpful treatment plan
for dizziness associated with spinal issues like McHenry
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The function and structure of
the upper cervical spine possibly will contribute
to dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and
ligaments may impact
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may produce
confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part
by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the
ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that result
in dizziness. (1) Spengel Chiropractic invites McHenry neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness
that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific
assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is know,
but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who
have dizziness visit doctors for assistance.
What might 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 altered
with neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One
recent case report of a 24-year-old woman
with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Spengel Chiropractic begins chiropractic care
with an exam that influences the development of an alleviating
McHenry chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Connecting dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other
disorders discovered via a thorough
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 tested in patients with cervicogenic
dizziness. In addition to a decrease in the intensity of the dizziness
and pain, an improvement in the range of motion toward the more
restricted side and better function were also noted.

Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine neck pain issues
