Dizziness and neck pain. Are they
linked? Science may not have the linking
research to say yes conclusively, but if a West Des Moines
neck pain patient has dizziness, it doesn’t
really count what the research says. There is neck
pain and dizziness! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa takes care of
West Des Moines neck pain with chiropractic care, and associated
dizziness may be relieved as well.
NECK PAIN AND DIZZINESS
A new paper just came out discussing a potential
neck pain and dizziness connection. Right? Well, cervical spine muscles in the neck connect with vestibular (inner ear/balance
center), visual and other centers that help with proprioception, our sense of
position and movement of the body.
When proprioception is not right because
of neck issues, disorientation and imbalance
may result. The term “cervicogenic dizziness” explains
dizziness and associated neck pain in patients with cervical
spine issues. There is no one exact test a doctor does that says that a patient has “cervicogenic
dizziness.” However, a patient who had
dizziness and neck pain was adjusted with chiropractic adjustment
and ultrasound therapy reported relief in this study. (1)
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa calls any West Des Moines neck pain and
dizziness patients to come in for chiropractic care!
West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NECK PAIN
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa offers a unique
form of chiropractic treatment in Cox® Technic. Cox® Technic is
gentle distraction, no rapid motions or cracking. It is very
well accepted. For patients who have spinal stenosis because
of a disc herniation accompanied by arm pain, 15
treatments over 10 weeks alleviated the pain, and
the relief was present still at 2 years’ follow-up. (2) It’s not surprising that chiropractic patients are
willing to pay $37.32 out of pocket to maintain their current
state of neck pain relief. (3) An
Australian study looked at older adults who had neck
pain and sought care from a chiropractor.
One in 5 people over 70 years of age experience neck pain.
45.5% of them experiences neck pain. 31.3% of them also reported headache. 57.3% of chiropractors stated that their dizziness patients achieved
moderate relief. Migraine sufferers needed quite a few
more visits than patients with headache to find relief. (4) There is
hope with West Des Moines chiropractic care for neck pain, headache and
dizziness at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR West Des Moines NECK PAIN CARE
Chiropractors like your very own one at
Executive Chiropractic of Iowa appreciate evidence-based recommendations for patient care. Uncomplicated
neck pain as well as neck pain with headache or radicular symptoms,
“best practice” recommendations based on “best available
scientific evidence” are chiropractic manipulation and multimodal care. An initial
trial of 6 to 12 treatments is reasonable
with a shift from passive care to active care and self-care. (5) The
Cox® Technic System of spinal pain management has a
well-researched and documented treatment plan for neck pain relief.
