Moriarty Chiropractic Offers Treatment for Relief of Dizziness and Neck Pain

December 15, 2020

Dizziness can be upsetting. Moriarty Chiropractic takes care of neck pain patients with dizziness seeking a cause and a solution. Nashua chiropractic care of dizziness starts with a detailed examination to establish a potentially relieving treatment plan for dizziness related to spinal issues like Nashua neck pain.


The structure and function of the upper cervical spine may well contribute to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine muscles and ligaments may contribute to cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause confusion for the proprioception system managed in part by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in these ligaments and muscles may initiate abnormal reactions that lead to dizziness. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic takes care of many Nashua neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that happens in patients with neck pain. No particular assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is established, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to 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 awareness of body position and movement. When this proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may arise too. One recent case report of a female aged 24 years who reported cervicogenic dizziness and neck pain described improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Linking imbalance and dizziness with neck pain not associated with any other disorders discovered via a thorough examination is important to relief for cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation succeeded in relieving pain for patients in a new report. (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 increase in the range of motion toward the more restricted side and better function were also noted. (4) The use of the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management for cervical spine pain issues like neck pain is effective, gentle, and safe.
