Dizziness is a problem. Alone, dizziness can be upsetting, but it can also alter balance and contribute to falls. Dizziness with associated cervical spine disc degeneration can be a problem for older folks. Moriarty Chiropractic shares new research about chronic neck pain and its link to dizziness as well as the role Nashua chiropractic care plays in relieving neck pain and oftentimes 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 already-published studies, both clinical and basic science, detail the relationship of cervical disc degeneration and dizziness. A new study indicated that cervicogenic general dizziness was the diagnosis for 89% of these patients. Improper neck postures over long time periods may be a factor when there is existing degenerative cervical disc disease. Men and women have different triggers for their dizziness. For example, farming, gardening, and weeding may trigger general dizziness, especially in women who are older. (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 ensued with only cervical disc degeneration alone without cervical radiculopathy or myelopathy. (2) Such degenerative disc disease in the neck 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 cervical spine disc disease patients and related dizziness find conservative treatment to be effective for them. (3) Moriarty Chiropractic is the home for conservative chiropractic care of Nashua neck pain and degenerated cervical discs.
CHIROPRACTIC CONSERVATIVE CARE FOR DIZZINESS
An Australian study of chiropractic care of neck pain patients who also had dizziness revealed that chiropractic is often used 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 moderately responsive to their chiropractic conservative care.
