The function and structure of the upper cervical spine possibly will contribute to dizziness. Problems with upper cervical spine ligaments and muscles may impact cervicogenic dizziness. How? Such problems may cause confusion for the proprioception system controlled partly by the vestibular nucleus. Changes in the ligaments and muscles may spark abnormal reactions that result in dizziness. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn welcomes many Ashburn neck pain patients with dizziness.


Cervicogenic dizziness is defined as dizziness that occurs in patients with neck pain. No particular assessment for cervicogenic dizziness is know, but patients with neck pain because of a cervical spine pathology who have dizziness present to doctors for assistance. What might the connection be? Cervical muscles connect and interact with the vestibular, visual, and higher centers to produce effective proprioception, the recognition of body position and movement. When such proprioception is altered with neck pain, the dizziness may happen too. One new case report of a 24-year-old woman who reported neck pain and cervicogenic dizziness reported improvement of both with chiropractic care.

Connecting dizziness and imbalance with neck pain not related to any other disorders done through a careful examination is important to relieving care of cervicogenic dizziness. Manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation worked for patients in a new paper. (3) Dizziness may come from damage to the somatosensory system. Upper cervical spine manipulation was analyzed in patients with cervicogenic dizziness. In addition to a decrease 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.
