Dizziness can be distressing. Young Chiropractic welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Easley chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a careful exam to set up a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Easley neck pain.
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may well contribute to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in these ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Young Chiropractic welcomes many Easley neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH CHIROPRATIC CARE
Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is recognized, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who experience dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What could the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to generate useful proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When such proprioception is changed due to neck pain, the dizziness may happen too. One recent case report of a female aged 24 years with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness stated improvement of both with chiropractic care.

DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
Correlating dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not associated with any other disorders done via a careful 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 tested in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a decrease in the intensity of the dizziness and pain, an increase in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also reported.
