Dizziness can be distressing. Johnson Chiropractic welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Richmond chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a careful exam to set up a potentially helpful treatment plan for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Richmond neck pain.


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


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No particular test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When this proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may happen too. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Linking dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed through a careful examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness.

Upper cervical spine manipulation was analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a decrease in the intensity of the dizziness and pain, an improvement in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also reported.
