Carrolltown Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be frustrating, but it can also affect balance and lead to falls. Dizziness with related cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation shares new research about chronic neck pain and its relationship to dizziness as well as the role Carrolltown chiropractic care contributes in relieving neck pain and oftentimes 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, describe the connection of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A new study pointed out that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of these patients. Improper neck postures over long time periods may be a factor when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have separate prompts 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 pointed out 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 degenerative disc disease in the neck also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, particularly inflammatory cytokines that affect mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs leading to dizziness. The good news: a majority of cervical spine disc disease patients and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is the place for conservative chiropractic care of Carrolltown neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also experienced dizziness found that chiropractic is frequently utilized by these patients to manage their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors stated that the neck pain and associated dizziness was moderately responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation utilizes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related Carrolltown neck pain.
