Dizziness can be distressing. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness who
are looking for a cause and a solution. Paramus chiropractic
care of dizziness begins with a careful exam
to set up a potentially helpful treatment plan
for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Paramus
UPPER CERVICAL SPINE ISSUES AND DIZZINESS
The function and structure of
the upper cervical spine may perhaps contribute
to dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may be a factor in
cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce
confusion for the proprioception system controlled partly
by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the
ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that result
in dizziness. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center welcomes many Paramus neck pain patients with dizziness.
NECK PAIN AND CERVICOGENIC DIZZINESS IMPROVED WITH
Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness
that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific
assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is recognized,
but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who
have dizziness visit 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 arise too. One
recent case report of a female aged 24 years
who reported neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with
chiropractic care. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center starts chiropractic care
with an exam that influences the development of a relieving
Paramus chiropractic treatment.
DIZZINESS AND NECK PAIN RELIEF
and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other
disorders revealed via a careful
examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic
dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation worked for patients in a new report. (3) Dizziness
may result 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.
