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


The function and structure of the upper cervical spine may perhaps contribute to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in the ligaments and muscles may trigger abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness.

Cervicogenic dizziness is explained as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No specific test for cervicogenic dizziness is recognized, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to 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 altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise as well. One recent case report of a 24-year-old woman with neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness stated improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Connecting imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not related to any other disorders done via a thorough examination is important to relieving care of 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 analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a decrease 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 noted.
