Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

December 15, 2020

Dizziness can be distressing. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Augusta chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a careful exam to set up a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness linked to spinal issues like Augusta neck pain.


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine possibly will bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may produce confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic takes care of many Augusta neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness visit 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 recognition of body position and movement. When this 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 reported improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic starts chiropractic care with an exam that leads to a relieving Augusta chiropractic treatment.


Connecting dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not related to any other disorders revealed via a careful examination is important to relief for cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new report. (3) Dizziness may result 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 improvement in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also reported. (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.
