Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be frustrating, but it can also alter balance and lead to falls. Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic presents new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role Augusta chiropractic care contributes in relieving neck pain and frequently related dizziness.
CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS
Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often experience dizziness as well as neck pain. Many already-published 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 diagnosed in 89% of these patients. Inappropriate neck postures over long time periods may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have separate triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may trigger general dizziness, particularly in older women. (1) Surgeons reporting on a new surgical approach to relieving chronic neck pain explained that current clinical and immunohistochemical studies strongly suggested 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 affect mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs resulting in dizziness. The good news: a majority of cervical spine disc disease patients and associated dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS
An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also had dizziness found that chiropractic is often utilized by these patients to manage their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors reported that the neck pain and related dizziness was quite responsive to their chiropractic conservative care.
