OrthoIllinois Chiropractic Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be troubling. OrthoIllinois 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 neck pain.


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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic invites McHenry neck pain patients with dizziness.


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) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic begins chiropractic care with an exam that influences the development of an alleviating McHenry chiropractic treatment.


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. (4) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic’s use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine neck pain issues is gentle, safe, and effective.
