The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may well bring on dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may be a factor in cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in these ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Eugene neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness that happens 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 have dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What might the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate useful proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When such proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness stated improvement of both with chiropractic care.

In addition to a decrease 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.
