The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be troubling. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR often sees neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Colorado Springs chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a thorough examination to establish a potentially helpful treatment plan for dizziness associated with spinal issues like Colorado Springs neck pain.


The structure and function of the upper cervical spine possibly will contribute to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed partly by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR takes care of many Colorado Springs 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 experience dizziness visit doctors for help. What could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the awareness of body position and movement. When this proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One recent case report of a 24-year-old woman with cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain described improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR starts chiropractic care with an exam that leads to a relieving Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment.


Connecting imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed via a thorough 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 analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a reduction 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 noted. (4) The use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine pain issues like neck pain is gentle, safe, and effective.
