UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
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.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
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 awareness 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. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic begins chiropractic care
with an exam that leads to a relieving
Eugene chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
and dizziness with neck pain not related to any other
disorders done through a careful
examination is key to relieving care of cervicogenic
dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in
relieving pain for patients in a new paper. (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 increase in the range of motion toward the more
restricted side and better function were also noted.
