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
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 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.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
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.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
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.
