Dizziness can be upsetting. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation takes care of neck pain patients with dizziness who are looking for a cause and a solution. Carrolltown chiropractic care of dizziness begins with a detailed exam to set up a potentially helpful treatment plan for dizziness related to spinal issues like Carrolltown neck pain.


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may perhaps bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may produce confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in these ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation takes care of many Carrolltown neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is recognized, but patients with neck pain due to a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What might the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When this 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 described improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Correlating dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not related to any other disorders revealed via a thorough examination is important to relief for cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new paper. (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 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 reported.
