Colorado Springs Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be upsetting, but it can also alter balance and lead to falls. Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for folks of an older age. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR shares new research about chronic neck pain and its relationship to dizziness as well as the role Colorado Springs chiropractic care plays in neck pain relief and frequently related dizziness.

CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS

Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often have dizziness as well as neck pain. Many existing studies, both clinical and basic science, detail the connection of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A new study pointed out that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of such patients. Improper neck postures over long time periods may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have different triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may cause general dizziness, especially in women who are older. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain pointed out that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly indicated that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness came from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness happened with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such cervical spine degenerative disc disease also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, particularly inflammatory cytokines that trigger mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs leading to dizziness. The good news: a majority of patients with cervical disc disease and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is the clinic for conservative chiropractic care of Colorado Springs neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also had dizziness revealed that chiropractic is frequently used by these patients to handle their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors said that the neck pain and associated dizziness was moderately responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related Colorado Springs neck pain.
