Richmond Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at Johnson Chiropractic

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be frustrating, but it can also affect balance and contribute to falls. Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Johnson Chiropractic shares new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role Richmond chiropractic care plays in relief of neck pain and frequently related dizziness.

CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS

Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often experience dizziness as well as neck pain. Many existing studies, both clinical and basic science, describe the relationship of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A recent study indicated that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of such patients. Improper neck postures over long time periods may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have separate triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may initiate general dizziness, particularly in older women. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain explained that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly indicated that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness came from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness happened with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such cervical spine degenerative disc disease also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, specifically inflammatory cytokines that affect mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs leading to dizziness. The good news: a majority of patients with cervical disc disease and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) Johnson Chiropractic is the place for conservative chiropractic care of Richmond neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also experienced dizziness found that chiropractic is often used by these patients to handle their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors reported that the neck pain and associated dizziness was quite responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) Johnson Chiropractic uses the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related Richmond neck pain.
