Dizziness can be distressing. Pflugerville Wellness Center
welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Pflugerville chiropractic
care of dizziness starts with a careful examination
to establish a potentially helpful treatment plan
for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Pflugerville
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The structure and function of
the upper cervical spine may perhaps bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and
ligaments may impact
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce
confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part
by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in these
ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that result
in dizziness. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center welcomes many Pflugerville neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness
that happens in patients with neck pain. No particular
assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is know,
but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who
have dizziness visit doctors for help.
What might the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and
interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce
useful proprioception, the recognition of body
position and movement. When this proprioception is altered
with neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One
new case report of a female aged 24 years
with cervicogenic dizziness
and neck pain reported improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center starts chiropractic care
with an exam that influences the development of a relieving
Pflugerville chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Correlating dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other
disorders revealed via a thorough
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 reduction in the intensity of the dizziness
and pain, an improvement in the range of motion toward the more
restricted side and improved function were also noted.
(4) The use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical
spine pain issues like neck pain
is effective, gentle, and safe.
