Many people suffer from dizziness but almost all of them do not know the main reason behind. Good news is that your chiropractor can work on some diagnostic measures to determine exact cause of neck pain. In many cases of dizziness, the culprit turns out to be the neck pain.
Cervicogenic dizziness or, Cervicogenic vertigo, became the topic of discussion for the first time in 1955. It was defined as the dizziness having neck pain as the major triggering factor. It is believed that injury to deep tissues in the neck result in dizziness. The injury mainly disturbs the receptors which are responsible for balance. Typically, whiplash is considered to be one of the major reasons for dizziness. Nevertheless, it is not just the neck pain which can result in dizziness. Other disorders such as poor posture, arthritis, and inflammation can also result in serious kind of dizziness.
The people who suffer from dizziness may feel the ground beneath them moving. Dizziness can also make a person feel like being pulled on one side. Dizziness can also be in the form of sensation of disorientation, light-headedness and/or haziness. Now, this dizziness can increase with the movement of head and neck in certain angles. Some people have it while driving, watching TV, and/or walking down the stairs.
Neck stiffness, neck pain, headache, nausea, visual disturbances and tinnitus are the major symptoms of dizziness.
Talking about the treatment of dizziness, the best way to go is to treat it manually. Generally, it is the chiropractic care which you can have in order to get rid of the dizziness. The main benefit of chiropractic treatment is that it works in the symptoms and the root cause in a simultaneous way. For instance, you can get rid of the dizziness along with neck pain, neck muscle spasms and restricted neck movement with the help of special chiropractic adjustments. This chiropractic treatment can help you in getting the mechanical gliding of the joints restored.
Having that said, you need to consult your chiropractor as soon as possible if you suffer from dizziness. While there can be many other reasons for this disorder, there is a fair chance that you will find problem in the neck as the major reason. Even the dizziness due to other reasons may be treated well at chiropractor’s clinic.
