West Des Moines Dizziness and Neck Pain Care at Executive Chiropractic of Iowa

Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be upsetting, but it can also affect balance and lead to falls. Dizziness with related cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa presents new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role West Des Moines chiropractic care contributes in relieving neck pain and frequently related dizziness.

CERVICAL SPINE DISC DEGENERATION AND DIZZINESS

Patients with chronic neck pain due to cervical degenerative disease often experience dizziness as well as neck pain. Many existing studies, both clinical and basic science, detail the connection of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A recent study pointed out that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of these patients. Improper neck postures over long time periods may contribute when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have different triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may cause general dizziness, especially 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 indicated that chronic neck pain and intractable dizziness came from degenerated cervical spine discs. The dizziness occurred with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such cervical spine degenerative disc disease also has been found to be accompanied by inflammation, particularly inflammatory cytokines that affect mechanoreceptors like the Ruffini corpuscles in degenerated discs resulting in dizziness. The good news: a majority of patients with cervical disc disease and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is the home for conservative chiropractic care of West Des Moines neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.

CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS

An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also reported dizziness found that chiropractic is often utilized by these patients to handle their neck pain. One in five people over age 70 years experienced neck pain. 57.3% of chiropractors reported that the neck pain and associated dizziness was quite responsive to their chiropractic conservative care. (4) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa utilizes the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management in treating cervical disc degeneration and its related West Des Moines neck pain.
