Johnson Chiropractic Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be upsetting. Johnson Chiropractic takes care of neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Richmond chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a detailed exam to set up a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness related to spinal issues like Richmond neck pain.


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may well bring on dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may be a factor in cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in these ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Johnson Chiropractic takes care of many Richmond neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No particular test for cervicogenic dizziness is established, but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who experience dizziness visit doctors for assistance. What could the link 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 such proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may happen too. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman who reported neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness stated improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) Johnson Chiropractic starts chiropractic care with an exam that leads to an alleviating Richmond chiropractic treatment.


Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders done via a thorough examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new report. (3) Dizziness may come from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was analyzed 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 reported. (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.
