Dizziness can be upsetting. Vancouver Spine Care Centre
takes care of neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Vancouver chiropractic
care of dizziness starts with a detailed examination
to establish a potentially helpful treatment plan
for dizziness related to spinal issues like Vancouver
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The structure and function of
the upper cervical spine may perhaps contribute
to dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and
ligaments may impact
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause
confusion for the proprioception system managed in part
by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in these
ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that result
in dizziness. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre invites Vancouver 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 help.
What could the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and
interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate
effective proprioception, the recognition of body
position and movement. When this proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may happen as well. One
recent case report of a 24-year-old woman
who reported cervicogenic dizziness
and neck pain described improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre starts chiropractic care
with an exam that leads to a relieving
Vancouver chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
and dizziness with neck pain not related to any other
disorders discovered 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 come from damage to the somatosensory system. 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 improved function were also noted.
