Executive Chiropractic of Iowa Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

Dizziness can be distressing. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa welcomes neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. West Des Moines chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a careful examination to establish a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness linked to spinal issues like West Des Moines neck pain.


The structure and function of the upper cervical spine may perhaps bring on dizziness. Issues with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such issues may cause confusion for the proprioception system controlled in part by the vestibular nucleus. Alterations in the ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa invites West Des Moines neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No specific assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness visit doctors for help. What could the link be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce useful proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When this proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may happen too. One recent case report of a 24-year-old woman with cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain described improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Connecting imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders revealed via a thorough examination is key to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new paper. (3) Dizziness may come 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 improvement in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also reported.
