Cross Chiropractic Center Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

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


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine possibly will bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed partly by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in the ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center takes care of many Sandy Springs neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No particular test for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who experience dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What could the connection 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 such proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One recent case report of a 24-year-old woman with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with chiropractic care. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center starts chiropractic care with an exam that influences the development of an alleviating Sandy Springs chiropractic treatment.


Connecting imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders done through a thorough examination is key to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation worked for patients in a new paper. (3) Dizziness may come from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was tested 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 improved 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 effective, gentle, and safe.
